Friend and neighbor Lee Anne Gardner-Warrenfells has just opened up her online shop, Flippin Retire. She makes planters from old tires, but before you roll your eyes and click somewhere else, let me assure you--these are not your memaw's tire planters by the mailbox. Lee Anne has taken what I've always considered a bit white trash-y (don't go gettin' all offended, we had tire planters in our own white trash yard) and literally turned it into high art. Well, not super high, but some of them are about 3 feet high.
And if all of that's not enough, she's even figured out a way to use the remnant pieces as super fun decorative elements and mirrors.
