Sunday Craft Class

It snowed here overnight on Friday night and the Bag Lady woke up to a winter wonderland. It was warm enough that the snow melted during the day. When the Bag Lady looked out in the early afternoon, the trees still had some snow on them, and there was steam rising from the driveway. She hurried to take a picture, but the steam dissipated too rapidly. She thinks the trees look kinda pretty, though.








The Bag Lady spent part of yesterday cleaning out a couple of her cupboards. She finally got annoyed enough with the barbeque tools that were rattling around in one of the cupboards that she decided to do something about it.

She found an old pair of blue jeans and thought she could perhaps turn them into something useful. (She's all about the recycling!)

So she turned this:





Into this:
Now her barbeque tools are no longer aggravating her when she tries to get something else out of the cupboard and when the season starts again, she can hang them all together on the side of the barbeque.

Creative, and you actually do what you think of doing.
I really like the barbecue tools holder. Damn smart idea.

Hey, that's a good idea! Have you been hanging around Wardrobe Refashion or something? :-)

the Bag Lady said...

dfLeah: Thanks! I do occasionally do what I think of doing, but mostly I just think of things to do so I don't have to do the things I need to do...sigh.
BG: Actually, Wardrobe Refashion comes to me for ideas!! Hahahahahaha

Reb said...

the Bag Lady said...

Thanks, sis!

Sydney Speel said...

I want snow!

How pretty!

the Bag Lady said...

Thanks, Sydney. It was rather pretty, and the best part was, it melted away quickly! :)

Running Knitter said...

That's an excellent idea!

the Bag Lady said...

Why, thanks, running knitter, and thanks for stopping by!

Hilary said...

Who knew that the Bag Lady was really Martha Stewart.. great idea Baggie. :)

the Bag Lady said...

Thanks, Hilary, and I appreciate you keeping that fact under your hat!! Didn't want anyone to know...

Clever! Do you routinely recycle old things into functionable items?
Also I love it when the trees are frosted like that.

the Bag Lady said...

Sagan - I do try to recycle things, especially fabrics... I've made a quilt out of old blue jeans, for example.
I like the frosty look on the trees, too...but I prefer to see the green leaves, and can hardly wait for them to start popping out around here!

Snow....in April?!?

There should seriously be a law against that!

the Bag Lady said...

Oh, MC, it has been known to snow in every month in this part of the country! We don't even plant our gardens until close to the end of May! Snow in April is not at all unusual. The one good thing is that it doesn't usually last too long.

Crabby McSlacker said...

Very clever!

And wow, do I have a lot of catching up to do. The assembly instructions cracked me up, and I loved the calf video. Good thing human babies aren't that precocious.

Missed out on a lot with no internet!

the Bag Lady said...

Crabby!!!! We have missed you, too! Does this mean you are all settled in at the new place and back in blogland?
