Think Green

Beth and I traveled to Bellingham this week to visit the Re-Store in order to collect treasures for our annual Think Green Event. Bernadette kindly let us have the run of the place (within reason) to pick out the doodads for you to use to make your artpieces out of.

What is Think Green? Here it is in a nutshell: First, visit the studio from February 15 through March 8 to pick up a container of recycled treasures and found objects. Second, create a masterpiece of home décor, garden art, altered couture or subject of your choosing from the ingredients in each container. Each will contain the same ingredients, and the only rule is you must use every single item. You may add whatever components you wish. A $10 donation for each container will be collected for a contribution to Re-Sources. Third, return your completed creations to the salvage studio on March 15 for an art display running through March 29. You'll have an opportunity to view all the other submissions and collectively we can revel in our green creativity!

A Re-Store creation in the spirit of Think Green.

We had a great is really wonderful when during the course of your job you can have your and eat it too. -Lisa

Lisa always manages to find a cat...Misha, the store cat, was 'supervising' the whole operation.
