I did a simple project for my home that I thought I might share with you. I think it falls in the category of thrifty because I recycled things I already had.

I recently told you about my love of crepes and mentioned the crepe place near me. On a visit there I got an orange juice to drink with my crepe.  Not just regular O.J. but a fizzy orange drink called an Orangina. Have you had one before? I think it may be more popular in other countries than it is in the U.S.

Instead of immediately recycling the glass bottle, I wanted to recycle it in another way. I took this home with me


I liked the shape of the bottle and the texture of the glass. And I had a can of gold spray paint…

Now gold

Because I did not have any white roses lying around. I cut an oversized white flower out of tissue paper and glued it to a chop stick as a finishing touch.

Happy Tuesday!
