Today (and thank you for the reminder to start washing) I'm recycling antique Ball jars. Some are the pretty blue ones that I'll sell in my new vintage shop and others will go in my pantry to hold beans and grains. I'm also shrinking sweaters to felt as I type.

Hmmm ... rescued today ... a paper towel tube for the church camp kids ... 2 odd thrift shop containers to make into pin cushions ... a shiny teabag wrapper for some future project ... 10 old greeting cards for gift tags.

And a partridge in a pear tree....

6 beer caps, two soda caps, a salsa jar lid, an old scrabble game, a colored envelope, and some packaging materials all are making their way into my studio today. Hopefully I'll find some time soon to use them.

Aside from another wonderful batch of scraps from a NW glassblower to use for my fusing projects, I'm playing with ideas for a pile of souvenir spoons.

And I've fleted a bunch of sweaters--some have already become bags, skirts, arm & legwarmers, etc., some are still waiting.

I've also got a plie of misc mail stuff--labels, stamps, etc., quite a few fronm China, to repurpose.

I'm passing my extra used bubble-pack bags along to others who sell online--they're still good packing material.

And I just "adjusted" some old clip-on earring backs to make them usable with little fused glass cabs.

I have 2 jars of wondeful metal junk sitting in my workroom waiting for time to play with them--teen son acquired a whole tray of stuff free at a junkyard & gave me what he doesn't need for own projects.

My big find today was a huge trash bag full of discarded T-shirts.
Along with the hats I make from the shirt arms, I will use the leftover scraps for applique, and the less usable pieces for weaving into my newest rag rug project!
