Throwing Away Old Ideas

Frederick resident Heather Raffa loves playing with trash—. Give her some blown-out light bulbs or empty baby food jars and she will turn them into quirky Christmas ornaments. In Raffa’s hands, thrift store spoons and forks transform into funky bejeweled bracelets and the tape from discarded audio cassettes gets knitted into reusable shopping bags. She even figured out how to make a garden bench from an old satellite TV dish.
