Earth Day

"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children."
~Native American Proverb~

No question that our members are doing their part beautifying it!!...

Hi Marcella,
It's Linda from Baby Moon Creations. Thanks for visiting and your invitation to place the Etsy Cottage button on my blog site. I tried and had no success and wondered if you could help.
Lost in Blog Land,
Linda K
P.S. Love the Earth Day posts, love the flowers-Yeah Spring!

Happy earth day (belated...I'm still catching up on the day and it is tomorrow already!)! I love the pic of the bicycle garden. My neighbor had a bike out at her yard sale the other day...I'm so wishing I'd have picked it up to use in the garden! I'll find one this week in my hunt for vintage treasures...

Hi Marcella - these photos are just wonderful, such great inspiration. I too tried to put the badge on my blog, but it is too big and gets cut off - unfortunately I am not that savvy to fix it - any ideas?

I got spring fever!!

Dru said...

Hi Marcella - thanks so much, this time it worked and it fit - I don't know what I did different before - but doesn't matter now, it's on there. Thanks again.

I was a recycler before it became a term!
i once carried an old table leg home in my suitcase, that I found washed up on a beach in Cancun!
Love the bicycle!
I have an idea for mine now!
