I am a messy internet surfer. At the end of any given surfing session, I'll have a bunch of tabs open waiting for me to do something with them - save photos, link to my blog, read more, bookmark, or something. At some point I stop to clean up the mess and that usually involves creating an Inspired By post. Today, I have a bunch of tabs and it's time to clean them up and link them up here.
Reloved Rubbish. She needed to transplant a boxwood to a larger container. She put it in a large plastic liner and then put that into the bucket and covered the top with moss.
Apron Thrift Girl is hosting a Reseller's Listing Challenge all month. It's meant to motivate us to focus and sell things online - on Ebay, Etsy, or whatever. Each Tuesday in February, you can link up and share your progress. I have some things that are not appropriate to my booth that I've been meaning to sell. I have some other priorities right now, but I can come back to this later for inspiration, even if it's too late to join the party. Am I the only one who goes to the party long after it's over? She also has a good post on why she decided to reopen her Ebay store.
RoboJunker. I have looked through her Quick Projects page and found so much inspiration that I needed to make a collage. She has rounded up tons of ideas (her own and others) for turning what some might call junk into something cool and useful. I can't close her tab yet, because there are so many other topic pages to explore.
I stumbled across Junk Revolution Community and was hooked. It's a great place for junkers and thrifters and vintage lovers. I'm always on the lookout for inspiration for decorating my booth and this topic - Let's See Some New Booth Pictures - really grabbed my attention. Blossom (Greta) is one of the members. She has a booth at an 8000sf mall. She posted photos from a number of interesting booths there. Apparently, she is drawn to the same looks that catch my eye. I loved her photos.
Here's a fun redo from Lucy Designs. She turned a plain red bench into a bench that looks like it was made from coffee shipping crates. Her post includes lots of details on how she made it. I love that the bench has built in storage. She added the casters and if you know me, you know I love putting big pieces on rollers - it makes rearranging a breeze. Great post. Great idea. Great bench.
My internet tabs are now under control, so that's all for today!
