Reduce, Re-use, Recycle

I saw a stamp with this saying and had to buy it because it fits so well with our mindset in regard to décor, wedding or otherwise. We have a section in our warehouse full of items we’ve saved from the ‘discard’ piles in our own homes and others, just for remaking into something new and unique. We also love a good flea market! Lucky for all of us, re-purposing and crafting have become popular again, and ideas are easier than ever to find with all the DIY blogs, shows, and the treasure trove that is the internet!

So, what are some of our favorite ideas we’ve seen out there? And where can you look for creative inspiration? I love Pinterest for saving pictures of things I’d like to re-create and for browsing without any focus in particular. You never know what you’re going to stumble upon! I also love going into boutiques and stores like Anthropologie, mostly for the store displays rather than items they’re actually selling (which I also love, but are usually way overpriced!). This summer I saw the cutest display of thinly sliced, dried oranges, strung vertically in garlands hanging from the ceiling above some dinnerware. It was so simple, summery, and cheap to make! The contrast between that and the expensive dinnerware was a nice mix, and shows that not everything needs to be high dollar to have a great look!

Back to ideas we like, especially with regard to weddings. Some of my favorites for barn weddings and receptions include using old suitcases for cards; crates stacked upon each other or strewn about as décor; lamp shades and empty frames hanging from trees for a neat photo shoot; old wooden wagons, wheelbarrows, and chests for displaying flowers or holding gifts; jars, tin cans, and wine bottles as vases; old dressers painted and distressed for any kind of display or buffet; antique typewriters in place of a traditional guest book; hay bales as cheap seating; quilts for decoration; antlers for a rustic touch; old crocks, galvanized buckets, and ladders for an antique, country feel; and last but not least, logs cut into rounds and placed under centerpieces or used as plate chargers, in large stumps along the aisle, or even cut into candle holders and vases! Phew!!! That’s plenty for now ; )

I’m excited as we go into the wedding business to see all the other ideas that people have regarding this topic! The collective creativity out there is amazing!

My Husband and I have been together for 3years, we started having issues (JANUARY  12TH) and we both broke up this years, after our fight over his cheating habits which they all say it's not their fault but I was the one getting hurt for it . I was upset over the whole issue that I had to call for the separation but I felt really bad. The separation really had effects on my daughter who had to live away from her father that I had to think of a way to settle things out and find solution to my husband's awkward behavior. I found out about a spell caster  (Dr gbojie  ) who helped me with the problem to make my spouse come back to me and make him stop cheating. Soon, Richard came back to me begging at Sicily where I stayed after our divorce and I told him he has to show me he has changed for me to believe him. He came back twice after that day to Sicily begging me to have him back. Its been 1 month  now since my husband came back to me and we have been living together since that day. I believe this man can also help you too in getting your Ex lover back and also solve other problems  His email address is ( gbojiespiritualtemple @ gmail. com  ) also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2349066410185

24 HOURS LOVE SPELL CASTER 2020   I feel very happy to share my great and wonderful testimony with everyone on this platform..: I was married for 7 years to my husband and all of a sudden another woman came into the picture he started hating me and he was abusive and all because i never bear him a child. but i still loved him with all my heart and wanted him at all cost.... He filed for divorce and my whole life was turning apart and i didn't know what to do, he moved out of the house and abandoned me all alone,one day a very close friend of mine told me about trying spiritual means to get my husband back,so i went online to search and i came across so many spell caster who only wasted my time and took a lot of money from me,but i went back to her and told her that spiritual way has only taking my money and not yielding anything, and she introduced me to a spell caster, Dr gbojie, so i decided to try it. although i didn't believe in all those things because of what i have gone through lately, i contacted Dr gbojie  and he  explain all my problems to him and he told me that i shouldn't worry that when he cast the spell on me and my husband that my husband is going to run back to me and that within 2 weeks am going to get pregnant,so i did the little he ask me to do and behold it all work out,my husband run back to me and right now we have Twins Girl and a boy,so all thanks to Dr gbojie  you're indeed a great spell caster, in case anyone needs help here,  whatsapp him now +2349066410185 or email him : gbojiespiritualtemple@gmail.com  Website :   http://gbojiespiritualtemple.website2.me
