~Recycled Book Contest~

If you are like me, you have a ton of Gardening Books and maybe even Cookbooks. Everyone I know is always giving me these types of  book's, which I love and will always except.
Here's a Recycling tip for those who dont want their old books anymore. Dont leave them on the shelf and PLEASE do not throw them away. Recycle those bad boys. Many High Schools will take gardening and cooking books for their Agriculture classes and Home economics classes. You can give your books to a retierment community or have a book sale. You can also donate to your library or give away an old book on your blog in a contest.

Which brings me to my first RECYCLED BOOK GIVEAWAY!!!! The book I am giving away is this one!

~Eco Monday~

Ever wonder what to do with faucet handles from your outdoor faucets! I have a wonderful idea for those of you who love garden art and windchimes. At the Auburn County Fair today, they had on display a faucet handle wind chime! They used old faucet handles, some small springs & a chain to withstand the weight. What an intresting way to liven up a garden space! Absolutly adorable and so very creative! You can use many differnt colored ones and it makes a beautiful piece of art for any gardener! I cant wait to start collecting faucet handles to make my own windchimes! What a great way to Re-use this item. Another fantastic way of Recycling and keeping these little items out of the landfill!
Happy Recycling!
