Upcycled, recycled, repurposed: I just love all of these terms and the entire concept of seeing old things in a new light! Of course, this is nothing new; our ancestors were doing this out of necessity! If they needed a blanket, or a table or bed, they couldn't exactly run to the mall or grab the latest Pottery Barn catalog and place an order! No, they took the things they already had (things that we most likely would throw away now days!), and created something new and useful out of them!
This is the "before":
I put them in my Etsy shop, so that only means one thing: The next spindle will become candlesticks for us!!
Here's one last look:

Welcome to my blog!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I believe that everyone can have a beautiful home without spending a fortune! One of my favorite things to do is find creative ways to re-purpose things I already have on hand, or have picked up at yard sales and thrift stores. Join me as I share with you some of my favorite ideas for crafting and decorating, as well as travel adventures, and fun things that I pick up on my treasure hunts! Much of my work is influenced by my love all things French, nature, and of course shabby chic! I have gotten so many creative ideas from you very talented bloggers out there, and I hope that I can be an inspiration to you as well!
