I think I would pass on these ideas. Rather send them to the recyle center ;-)

I might try those planters next summer. I have a fence that needs some covering up.

We use gallon size jugs for veggie waste that I then cart out to the composter. Makes it easy if your put the peelings etc in the botles as you create them. We leave the handle and cut abut a 1/3 opening from neck to even with the bottom of the handle. Gives me a handle to grab (and hold as I dump into the composter) so I can take 3 or 4 of them out at a time.
Back to voting. 2 cities climbed over us today!!

Have to agree. Just 'cause you can do something doesn't mean you should.
I do use plastic bottles as cloches in the garden or to protect tree seedlings from animals.

Well stuff me, I actually thought the plastic bottle bottoms were quite whimsical and pretty.

I will refrain from sharing anything interesting or useful in the future.

I bought one of those shoe caddy things for my daughter. She uses it for her craft stuff. The cleaning supply holder is a great idea, too.
Pftttt on those who scoff-- keep those tips and ideas coming!

Woah! We are suposed to share our opinions, no? Share away, please! Some of us are artsy, but there are curmudgons out here as well.
Yes the bottle bottom crystal flower petals were cute, but would they belong in a B&B? Maybe, but not mine. The soda bottle planters? ... not.

I made one for my daughter's teddy bears to match the cover I put on her toy box. The thing weighed a ton loaded down!

I guess when you share your opinion basically telling someone else what they like stinks, then it doesn't feel so great. I actually thought about three inns I know from this forum who would take this idea and run with it, and it would be exceptional! I doubt they would speak up here now, after being told this is just not worthy of a B&B, and if they did run with it, they would never share it here and have it criticized to death.
I actually put noise makers in a champagne glass in lieu of posies for a breakfast delivery this morning, that is probably not up to par either...
I don't care about curmudgeons, maybe they need to get their finger out of their
and lighten up. I come to the forum and anything I post is nitpicked to death. The guests are all rotten, there is nothing good in the world. I actually like my guests (huge majority of them) and I actually like it when people encourage one another. THAT is what I am saying. THAT is all I am saying... sorry you were the straw on this camels back. I am not meaning to lash out at you.

I liked them too. It looks like they are tied together with those little plastic ties the stores and clothing companies use to attach washing instructions, price tags, etc. Is that something easily available? If not, I wonder what else could be used to tie them together easily. Fishing line is so hard to tie!

It just hit me!!! DUH!!! Move the aprons somewhere else and hang a shoe caddy on that door and put all the labeled coffee jars in the shoe pockets! That would make it easy to find the right jar for the roasted coffee AND give DH another area in my kitchen to crap up! I might even get a corner of it for me!!

OK, JB, my New Year's resolution: no more snippy replies to Innspiring forum posts.

Cool ideas, Joey! I like the tips for cleaning items later in the thread, too. Thanks for sharing! January is a great time to re-organize.

I scored yesterday with the R-R-R thing:
Took two laptops, a scanner, a printer, old TV and CPU to our semi-annual township recycling event. AND...
purchased a full-sized ironing board thru Craigslist for $10. The gal who had it was going to the township building to take things for recycling and since it's right across the street from our place, she dropped off the ironing board. She also offered to throw in, at no extra charge, an iron and a new pad/cover (still in the package). Turns out, she was 'clearing out' her mother's home since she had just passed away. They were moving into her mother's home and combining the two households. They had a lot of extras.
