This morning I took my kids literally a mile away from home to the Florida Tech campus to visit the Ruth Funk Center for Textile Arts.

Today is the last day for the Upcycled Style exhibit. 

The dresses are all made from recycled materials: Target bags, Coca-Cola cans, phone book pages, tires, and even Delta air plane seats.

Seriously, if you have not been you have til 4 p.m. today to check it out.  My boys even were totally impressed and they were (dresses).

Maggie Beth loved all the dresses, but her favorite was the one made of crushed glass. 

Hezekiah liked the dress made of caution tape.  And Eli said he liked them all!

It was WAY cool! 

We were not allowed to take any pictures inside the museum. 

 

After the museum we strolled around the botanical gardens and found Melbourne's first school house. 

(I forgot that it was back there).  We also found some beautiful flowers.
