Ideas for repurposing often spring out of economic necessity, and thus they often begin with something that is usually thrown away or can be acquired free. If it is a good idea, it can become trendy and shabby-chic. Pallet furniture is an example.

First there was pallet furniture, then Christmas season brought pallet trees!

Last year I went to the Megacities exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. The art for this exhibit was mostly made out of what some would consider “trash.” The art in the rotunda was made from plastic dishes!

Okay, I’m back again participating in Cee’s challenge. I love this painted “courtyard” area in Cambridge MA.

The topic for this week’s photo challenge is Unique. Aside from people, or pets, the first thing I thought of was artwork.

When my husband and I got married we registered at a local art gallery. We had both been on our own for many years; we had also been together for a while so the typical needs (dishes, kitchen appliances, towels) were not tops on our list. (I think most husbands feel the usual stuff is really for the woman anyway, not for him.) We both loved art so that seemed like something we would both enjoy. One of our wedding gifts was this ceramic purple wall plaque (or plate).

Another gift was a ceramic vase with a beautifully crafted frog on it. When I put this on the floor to take a photo for this challenge, Aimee decided she just had to be in the picture!

The last item is something my old boss brought back on a trip to Dubai. I love the delicate wood carving.

After seeing some lovely photo collages with all of the seasons represented (thanks, Eliz and firstandfabulous), I decided to revisit the topic.

I had forgotten that I have a piece of artwork in my home that is a perfect fit for the theme; it is actually called “Seasons.”  I wish I could tell you who the artist is, but I bought the print on the streets of Quebec City many years ago. Very expensive for me at the time, but I loved it. You can see the iconic Chateau Frontenac in the print.
