Give Me The Simple Life: Forgotten Items

Suzanne Simple Living

There are all kinds of ways to use forgotten household items, especially in the garden.  If you’re as eager as I am for Spring to spring, check out these pix.


Got some extra coffee mugs around the house? I love that the cups and saucers didn’t start as a pair. But they sure do work!


How’s this for re-purposing an old washtub?


I wonder what stories this ol’ tub could tell.


Got an old bucket lying around?


This bicycle is just . . . oh so French!


My mom used to have a lot of these old milk containers. Hmmm…where are they now?


Look at what happens when the pot  and flower is put in the pull cart. A little magic! Why can’t I think of things like this?!


These pix were taken at one of my favorite spots: Petit Soleil Bed & Breakfast in San Luis Obispo. Owners John & Dianne Connor are AMAZING. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the breakfasts are…well, food you’ll dream about. And I always leave feeling inspired to look at things around my home and see them in a different way.


Have you repurposed any old “stuff” for your garden? If so, send me a picture! I’d love to see your creativity. And if I share your picture, I’ll send you a signed book.
