Last Summer I was working on an organic farm in France and I was introduced to this amazing idea: reuse everything! One of the ways they did that on the farm was by reusing their broken plates. If the plates are attractively designed, all the better. They created collages, jewelry, birdhouses, and even made mosaics for their garden steps. So next time you drop a plate, don’t shudder with shame, think ART!
