Recycled License Plates

Last weekend a friend and I drove to a nearby island to do a walking workout (aka – window shopping). While strolling down Main Street I saw these guitars in the window of a gift shop and stopped to take a couple photos.

Aren’t they beautiful? This got me to thinking what else could be done with old license plates. Apparently there are quite a few eco-artists out there using license plates as their media of choice.

I started this blog to share with you all the results of years of turning trash into treasures. Hopefully I'll spark some new creative thoughts and if that happens I hope that you'll share your discoveries and together we’ll build a blog that will singlehandedly reduce global warming and save the world! Okay, maybe that’s a grand goal but we should be able to at least downsize our own trash output.

  1. I’m not sure exactly why but this site is loading incredibly slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem
    still exists.
