Pets.  My life would be miserable without animals.  I was totally thrilled to find a whole slide show of upcycle projects for pets on marthastewart.com

Here’s my faves:

Bird Cage made from Old Windows

From menswear to mice-wear. These catnip toys made from old sports coats will buy your cat’s love for a day. Maybe. (photo: marthastewart.com)
