Finding the Heart of it All/The Greens of Spring

  • Do you ever look at the beauty in the trash?

    In honor of Earth Day, I thought I would show you some of the parts that I have saved from the trash...and I love old rusty bits, thrown away years ago! I'm collecting them for a wall piece because one of my favorite art pieces is this painting by my grandfather Charles Comfort. He has always inspired me to look at things differently. Perhaps this used to be in a box of chocolates...He transformed it into something of beauty. He had an eye for preserving those small bits and pieces. 

    At Restored by Design it has become part of our mission, we like to say OUR INTENT IS TO REINVENT. Here you see the start of petal pieces made from compressed paper...Next time you go to throw something away, think again as it could be restored to have new life! I know my dog Phinny knows what to do...
