Upcycling Artistically

I've always known that there are a lot of good uses for old tires. In fact years ago, my daughter personally tried to make sandals out of some. I didn't tell her that the ones she was trying to cut, were steel belted. I thought it might keep her busy longer.

Anyhow, this was one of my favorite ways of seeing tires put to good use. There's something about this statue that not only makes me smile, but I want to climb onto it and just sit on its lap, in the sunshine.

What do you use that is recycled in your every day life or art? I'd love to hear about it.
