Upcycled Tea Time for the Birds

July 26, 2010 by

On my the hunt for objects repurposed into cool things for two garden rooms and a garden we are doing for the September Stamford, CT Designer Show House,  I came across these teacups and creamers upcycled into bird feeders.

Working with the theme “Conversing with Nature: A Creative Garden Retreat,” interior designer, Victoria Lyon, and I are designing two rooms that will serve as a potting shed as well as a place to develop creative ideas for the garden, paint, sketch, read garden books, and otherwise lose one’s self in imaginative thought.  We’ve got some fantastic eco-friendly and innovative things up our green sleeves: stay tuned for details.

    The earth thanks you!
    The ultimate in 3R:
    reduce – the amount of material going into landfill
    reuse – materials that can be repurposed
    recycle – objects reincarnated for other use
    Added bonus is that they’re beautiful and definitely a conversation piece in any garden setting.

    THRILLED to find you. Just posted two slide shows about repurposing to my citified garden blog … One is a collection of shots taken at the Philadelphia Flower Show this spring and the other is photos snapped in private gardens and on the street. Looking forward to more.

    Glad you found us too Stephanie! Look forward to seeing your slide shows. I loved the Philadelphia Flower Show, it was my first time.
