|My little classic - Gretchen|
Deb has always managed to find some bargains - and then upcycle them into some amazing projects. Some of her projects are:-
An upcycle for your old records. You can read about it here (If the thought of using your own ABBA, Bee Gee's, Fleetwood Mac or, my personal favourite, The Greatest Hits of the Carpenters, is too painful, then pick some up at your local charity shop).
Then she was lucky enough to pick up some great yarn that she was able to loom knit into a shimmery shawl. The link to that blog post can be found here.
Not content with one project, she was able get a further 2 projects out of her bargain yarn.
|Happy Birthday to you ...|
Until a week ago, that purchase was the highlight of my 'second-hand' purchases.
Last week, my son, his girlfriend and I were having a browse through our local op-shops (my little town has 4 of them), ostensibly looking for classical sheet music. I spied a small spinning wheel in the window and was smitten. There was never a question as to whether or not I would buy it but once I took it to the counter, my son said 'No, let me. I was going to come back and buy it for your birthday anyway'.
