Linda Renslear has a great eye for repurposing in Michigan
"We live on three acres in Holly, Michigan, and have been here for 33 years now. We have grown many trees, shrubs, perennials and veggies . This time of year we point out the 60 foot Frasier Firs that we planted to cut for Christmas trees…they were just too pretty to cut. Some parts of our home were originally built in 1820, with great views from each window. There is a creek across the road to the south. To the north, there are ponds on both the north and west facing sides. These ponds belong to the neighbors, so we get the views without paying the taxes. I love reusing items. The globes on the tree with the snow sitting on them are from the swag lamps of the 60’s. They have been hanging outdoors year round for twenty years now".
