Freecycle – Thank you for my New Goodies.

Freecycle is a wonderful community group.  Its offers lots of resources for upcycling and repurposing.
Recently a large ‘mixed box full of stuff from a garage’ was offered and I just had to have it.

The box was from a house clearance, and was full of old electronic components, resistors and wire. These reels of vintage wire are perfect are a lovely colour and will fit perfectly into a future project.


Vintage Charity Shop Find

I find fabric and vintage are the perfect combination.
One of my weekly trips to town, includes a wander around a selection of  favourite charity shops.  I can’t resist anything fabric or vintage, so when this lovely fabric was spotted peaking out from the corner of a rummage basket, I was in like a shot to retreive it.


What a Find… it came home with me.

It was quite a large piece of fabric and very draped beautifully. I held it up to me and realised  there was enough to make a tunic dress!
