Honestly, I am sick to death of the term 'green'. Ten years ago the term was 'frugal' or 'thrifty'. I have always been aware of reusing and recycling things, partly because I am cheap (insert evil grin here) but mostly because I hate waste. It drives insane really.
So- the other day I realized my pot holders are hitting that scary point where they are just gross. Not even a run through the washer is helping. One pair came from Paul's gram's house when we cleaned it out, I had sewed them together to make them thicker and embroidered their edges. The others were yard sale scores with Easter bunnies on them. I know- tacky..... snort.
So today I took the girls' jean legs I have been saving for reuse and covered my nasty pot holders.
I didn't photo them before covering them (they were that gross).
They are super thicko now so heat will never get through them. I love them. They should last me a looooong time.
Aren't you astounded with my domesticity? I know I am.
I think today I will set up a painting stations so I can start to dabble with some paintings. Or spin. Or something.
