Portable Personal Picnic Park
I love thrift store shopping and often come across items that just don’t seem to move. The slide carousel is #1. Coffee makers are a strong second. And number 3, is old briefcases. I guess no one wants to look behind the times when it comes to business, so there they sit. I can’t stand to think of anything being left out, so I put my thinking cap on and came up with a way to get them back into circulation . I introduce to you the Portable Park for all your picnic time needs.
Would you call this a garden in an unexpected place? I’m pretty sure the answer is “yes.”
Created by artist Alyson Shotz, this reflective picket fence is made entirely of mirrors and has been installed in several locations since 2003.

Jeans repurposed as planters — awesome sight to see in San Francisco. ❤

“Gardening with repurposed objects,” continued:
Old typewriters can be useful as new planters.

Who says you can’t use old heater parts in container gardening?!
