Recycling is trendy
Visiting one of my favourite shops I found a basket filled with so called junk - damaged goods you can buy for a symbolic price. So I bought a damaged cast iron candleholder in order to recycle it.
First I cut off the other half of the candleholder (the second 'plate' that holds a candle was missing) and got rid of horrible plastic rosebuds attached to its lower parts. Then I used a file to remove the burrs. And eventually I painted the candleholder white.
On the last photo you can see my first lavender harvest (but not last I hope) - a very tiny bouquet but I'm glad anyway :)
