101 uses for a......(book by Vladimir Arkhipov))
I am finding it impossible to find real life examples of people being resourceful, I look out for them all the time. So I will have to include this book by VLADIMIR ARKHIPOV called "Home-made" Contemporary Russian Folk Artifacts.
The book includes wonderful examples of the make do and mend attitude when you have no alternative.
TV aerial made from forks
A crutch made from a spade
A home for a queen bee made from a plastic hair curler.
This book is filled with many other beautiful and touching objects made out of what ever was to hand, along with stories about why they were made.
