It’s not just about pushing used bottle and jars into a recycling bin!
Here at Bealtaine Cottage most of the contents of my home are recycled household items.
I have added to the kitchen contents with this lovely wall shelving, bought second-hand at the Boot Fair in Carrick-on-Shannon over the weekend.
It cost me 20 euros…a bargain and I didn’t even have to barter, as this was the asking price which I thought was fair, so paid it.
It’s perfect in my kitchen!
I also bought a Bread Bin for 4 euros…in the same colour as I painted the floor.
I never know what treats await me as I forage through the Fair on a Sunday morning…and last Sunday I arrived home with three items for my cottage, the last being this unusual mirror, made from metal and looking slightly Gothic!
It seemed to fit perfectly beside the door to the porch, reflecting the Victorian wash-stand by the opposite wall.
There are so many different and interesting ways to recycle…it’s not just about glass and cans!
