Its the longest day of the year here in the Northern Hemisphere, which means the days will start getting shorter tomorrow. Does that make you feel down in the dumps? Well, cheer up and join me at the Tacoma Dump, where the summer recycled art show at the EnviroHouse is opening today. Don’t feel blue, get into the pink and read about how to be green in a good way on the Weekly Volcano Spew: “Green Is the New Pink: EnviroHouse provides inspiration for eco-friendly living,” and in the Tacoma News Tribune: “Art from Artful Recycling.”


And then read more about your muse for re-use, Ms. Ruby Re-Usable, in an exclusive interview by enpen over on OlyBlog.


Green is the New Pink — 3 Comments

  1. hooray! the days are getting shorter. more time to stay inside and stitch by the fire. always love to visit your blog, ruby! i don’t know what that crazy thing is in the photo you posted today, but if i had one, i’d definitely put in on a shelf where everyone could see it.


  2. that is a 24″ sized pink plastic bag and tape baby doll, it is stuffed with repurposed bubble wrap, I had 2 baby dolls in the show at the EnviroHouse (along with some other art work) but then the powers that be decided that the baby dolls were too controversial, so they were pulled from the show, I am very disappointed because most folks LOVE those tape sculptures when they see them in person!

    well, keep on sitting and knitting, and I will keep on amusing with the reusing, love, etc Ruby
