Over at the DG, my colleague Margaret Hartley writes about her latest craft project in her weekly column Greenpoint.

Here's an excerpt:

"My neighbor has been making garden art, stacking old glass light fixtures, glued together, onto broom handles and planting them in the garden to reflect and refract the light.

'It’s pretty dorky, but I’m having fun,' she said. 'I mean, I wouldn’t put it in my house, but in the garden it looks pretty nice.'

We were taking our weekly Insanely Long Walk — seven miles around the lake — and our conversation had turned to various reuse projects we’ve been working on.

My friend likes redoing old furniture — end tables or small chests — by painting them bright colors. She’s been doing mosaics too, on the tops of the tables and on old flower pots, using various broken plates and crockery. She makes fun of her finished projects, but they really are beautiful.

And we both like finding new uses for old stuff."
