  1. Great inspirational tips thank you and always good to be reminded in this world that keeps trying to tell you to consume all the time instead of reusing

My prarents who married after the depression and into the war, came from a generation that was forced to be innovative because so many goods were not available. My father provided planks and old apple crates for his five children to play with, and a few old sacks. We all grew up to be very creative. Our imaginations provided what we needed.

My best-remembered birthday present was a collection of three painted wooded boxes, a long one (a 20-pound fruit box) and two short ones made by cutting a long one in half and adding new ends. They became all sort of things, including dolls’ beds and a manger scene complete with a plasticene ‘electric’ light hanging from the ceiling, much to my parents’ amusement!
