Don't throw those wilted roses away. Instead, pluck off the petals so kitty can enjoy her bowl of water like a princess.
Yes, sometimes I do get carried away with the idea that I need to use everything at least twice before I throw it away. But wouldn't you say I did a pretty good job of reusing stuff when I made myself a matching purse and Gary a tie with the fabric I cut off to shorten my dress for David's wedding??
