It's T Stands for Tuesday, and I'm celebrating my bEARTHday.
Every year I buy these awesome chocolate chip muffins. And it wouldn't be my bEARTHday if I didn't celebrate it by drinking some freshly ground French Roast coffee that is laced with half and half. It's time to blow out the candle and enjoy my bEARTHday repast.
And for my final recycled entry,
I have always admired the cork Christmas tree that my friend Halle at Halle's Hobbies made one year. However, if you follow the link to her tree, you see I don't have enough corks for this project. However, last autumn, she made a few more of these trees, and she used less corks. Fortunately, I had enough corks to repurpose them into a tree for my own home.
Everything that is, except a base. Because necessity is the mother of invention, I came up with an old thread spool that would make a good base.
Since I've never seen one of these trees other than on Halle's blog, I had no idea what they look like. But people have given me all these corks, since I don't drink anything but coffee (and tea on many Tuesdays), so I had to contend with varying sizes and shapes, which turned into a nightmare when I attempted to assemble them. In the end, I used hot glue rather than E-6000 for the assembly.
After speaking with Halle, I learned I assembled the tree wrong, and when I tried to remove the glue, it was even worse. At least, I was able to get rid of a lot of the extra glue. Since I didn't have any circles the size Halle used to cover the ends of the corks, I added buttons to my tree.
Today is Day 22, where I recycled 13 corks and one thread spool. It all leads up to Earth Day, where we show our support for the environment and recycling. Please come back tomorrow, when I take you out and about as I celebrate my bEARTHday.
Now it's your turn to share what you are drinking, making art, or recycling today. Please join us by linking below, so we can visit you, too. Please remember, you do not need to drink tea, you do not have to drink anything, as long as you can relate your post back to something related to a drink. Thanks for playing, especially since I'm celebrating bEARTHday today.
