Trash to Boutique


Tammy  is the queen of recycling.  One of the things she does is create beautiful gift containers from coffee cans she covers and decorates.  It got me to looking at my tomato sauce cans and different tins I toss in the trash.  I started putting them in the dishwasher and recovering them with some of my pretty papers.  This one is a Christmas gift for a sweet girl at the grocery store.  I put 1/2 lb of Flathead Cherry coffee in it and I'll deliver it to her next week. Thanks for the great idea Tammy.                             Diane

What a great idea, love this! Cherry coffee?!!! I have never heard of that, does it taste like cherry or is it just the name? Lovely gift, you always have something going on! I do love the pink tree.......so pretty!

What an amazing idea soon I will have time for these fun projects...I had people in the yard yesterday morning from 9:15 til 6pm I have never seen my little shop so full. I was exhausted.
