2010 gift guides: recycled goodness for the home

by Barb

To me, a successful home environment includes a combination of three things: wood, glass and metal. I totally love seeing artful arrangements of both found and collected items that scream, “I’m living with what I love!” and buying things not just to buy them but because you truly love them and enjoy being surrounded by them. I chose all of these items for their recycled nature, but even more than that, for the stories they tell of previous lives that make their new purposes and forms all the more endearing. — Barb
