Resilience: Tire Flowers

He got laid off.  She’s a stay at home mom.  They have a baby and a toddler.  She has applied for jobs… and is waiting.  He has applied for jobs… and is waiting.  They could just complain and whine.  Poor meeeee….  This economy is sooooooo baaaadddd…..  booooooo-hooooooo…..

But, they have piles of tires in their back yard.

So, they’re making (and selling) Tire Flowers.  AND THEY ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!

You can choose from lots of colors.

You can choose the cheaper painted (non-flower) tire….

Or, splurge and get a tire FLOWER!

You can plant flowers in them (or plant your baby in them.)

Or, use them as goat tutus.  (I have actually never seen that word in print.  It looks weird.)

What????  Did you just say YOU need a flower tire?

Well, great news!  I just happen to have their email for you!!!  It’s greentiregardens@yahoo.com.  Contact Lauren right away! 

And, if you’re thinking, I could just make those myself!  Don’t.  It takes 30 minutes to turn one tire inside out to even get it to being an unpainted flower.  THEN, you have to paint it with a few coats of paint.  So…..

……Just order one.  Or ten.  Support them (they are Colorado Springs locals) and their quest to make ends meet in a positive, recycling, creative, fun, cheerful, resilient way until the steady paychecks start rolling in again.

    Those tire flowers are AMAZING!! I wish I lived close enough to buy some from them…but I think shipping to Canada would be cost prohibitive! The creativity in making them, and the brilliance in selling them, is something to be admired. :)

    I’m doing my part to help – I bought 5 tires last month when were on vacation. I was just browsing around on craigslist and found them. So Lauren is branching out – clear to the eastern border of Kansas!! I bought them as a Mother’s Day present and my mom LOVES them!
