Election Results.

Posted on | November 16, 2012 | 6 Comments

I’m not sure what everyone is so upset about.  Because no matter who you voted for, there are lots of benefits when the elections are finally over.  All those elections signs make for excellent free targets.

That extra durable paperboard is great for covering the walkways in the garden—keeps out the mud and the weeds.

And the metal sign posts can easily be converted, with just a few clips from the bolt cutters,….

….into more marshmallow sticks for the bonfire.

See?  We’re all winners in the end.  So if you see me picking up election signs from the side of the road, I’m not stealing them.  I’m upcycling them.  Just my small way of supporting democracy.  God Bless America, people.

P.S.  If you leave your kids here after school, they will be sucked into whatever random project I am working on at that time.  And I might take pictures.  And put them on the blog.  I’m just sayin’.

    You are doing us all a favor by picking up the signs from the side of the road. The candidates certainly won’t.

    Penultimate sentence – “And put them on the BOG.” Hm, does this mean your visitors are assisted onto the lav, whether they like it or not??!!

    Glad to know that there are other citizens out there with imagination and the willingness to upcycle all that country road detritus. I have curled the ends of said metal signage supports and used them as temporary fencing in seed beds, hung the curled ends ‘end-to-end’ and used them to hold trailing vines, and more. What I hadn’t thought of was reusing the placards as weed mats! Thanks for that! ~Lynda
