Trash


Trash: Yes a weird theme for this post but relevant nonetheless! In an attempt to keep my car tidy, I decided to make a mini trash bag. The inside is lined with vinyl (from a $3 shower curtain) while the outside is made from a fat quarter of fabric. I used a ribbon to act as a handle and secured one end with a velcro dot. I also used some boning on one side of the top to keep the bag open. (PS- I can't seem to figure out why this post is underlined and therefore cannot un-underline it...sorry!). Here's the finished product:

Trash: While in France a few years ago, I was walking around the little alleyways and streets of Alsace and came upon a crate full of empty wine bottles. I decided it would make a really nice picture so I snapped away. My friend Tori is on the planning board for the Pink Tie Ball, which benefits Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer foundation, and she asked if I would like to donate an item for the silent auction. I thought this picture would be nice in someone's home so I had it printed to an 11x14 size and framed. You can see the original picture better on my website under 'art for purchase'. So, as the saying goes, one man's trash really is another's treasure!
