OMG! We Can Save the Earth!

One day last year I was thrilled by my own ingenuity of the recycling of a Nutter Butter plastic package. I cut a piece of green striped scrapbook paper, wrapped and taped it around the plastic container and used it as a pencil jar. Then, I used the yellow plastic lid as a holder for my soap bottle.

I was all smiles with my intelligence for about two days until my four-year-old niece came home with a piggy bank with legs and snout made out of empty thread spools,  a curlyque tail, and a body made out of a plastic water bottle which she had made at daycare. I was humbled. I oohed and awed. The piggy bank was actually quite good. Consequently, I never made another attempt at a recycled art or even thought about it, until…

I came across the most amazing recycled art which I saw on Etsy that made me yell, “Oh My God!”  I did a little jig in my chair and continued to yell, “Oh My God!” There’s hope for humankind, the economy and the earth!

My mind started racing with all the delicious recycling ideas which popped into my head. I thought about them all night. I could hardly sleep. Ideas, which should have popped into my head with the piggy bank, had I not allowed my earlier endeavor to be squashed by a four-year-old. Yea, my bad! I know…I have my faults. I’ll talk to my shrink about it. LoL!

Anyway, I digress. Get a load of these amazing, OMG! recycled artworks. Each one of these creations made me laugh…in a great way, smile, and feel just grand about human intelligence.

TUFFY – The Robot Terrier SOLD!  The roller skates sold me on this adorable pint size robot. I thought to myself, “It moves!”  I can actually see myself taking Tuffy for a stroll through the neighborhood. If you are allergic to dogs, this is the pet for you. Tuffy’s creator made him from roller skates, a cocktail shaker, and a coffee pot. I also see spoons for ears, miniature binoculars for eyes, and the springy thingy from the inside of a large pen for a tail.  Take him home with you!
