If this blog were reality television show…..it would be Project Runway…..and today would be the unconventional challenge.
You know what I’m talking about.
The episode where they take trash or candy or flowers or pet store items and create an outfit.
At this point you are probably asking yourself:
(2) Did she add some new pillows and yellow mums on that back porch?
(3) Did she and the porch ever elope to Vegas?
(4) What in the world could someone create with trash or candy or flowers or piles of puppy pads?
It is possible to create something wonderful from something unconventional.
It’s even more than possible.
Does it get any better than that?
So if this were Project Runway and I hadn’t eloped with my porch and I was decorating for fall…..
……here’s my birdseed dress.
Can you tell what it is?
Can you tell what I reused and recycled?
My birdseed dress is the cardboard packing that came in my order.
That I used as a table runner.
Destined for the recycle bin.
I saw it and I loved it.
And it was free.
If it’s not your thing…..I completely understand.
Birdseed dresses and cardboard table runners are not for everyone
But I did want to be ready.
I wanted to be prepared.
Just in case Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn stopped by and told me to…..
……make it work
