When we gave my in-laws a handmade wreath for Christmas last year, we never imagined that it would hang on their door as long as it did.  Never assume that you’ve outlived your usefulness until you consider all the possibilities.  If you look closely (below) you will see that this recycled wreath served as the perfect nesting spot for a family of birds.

I think it may be true that finding something useful to do can extend your life!

Thanks to my sister-in-law, Janine, for passing along these pictures.
