Change the World

The theme this week is Change the World at

Inspiration Avenue.

On my on-going mission to keep the landfills clean,

I dug this beauty out of someone’s trash last summer.

DSCN0515 See her yellow water stains…Blech!

After I cut her apart, I sanded, painted and added few other

objects (like the wire from a champagne cork)

of course, I had to make the butterfly.

Nobody throws anything that nice in the trash :)

Ta Da!


Now she is all prettied-up and ready for a very special day!

Our Art Auction starts Sunday,

and she will be there.

Check back to see who’s joining her.

XO, Lisa
