Reuse, Recycle, Upcycle - Buttons!
Has one of these creative reuse, recycle, upcycle CRAFT stores popped up near you yet? Oh my goodness, I visited this one today and it was like heaven! It was as if you were in the sewing/crafting section of your favorite thrift shop and found something amazing for pennies...except, EVERYTHING was amazing and everything costed pennies! I spent a total of $6 and got all of this: Vintage Hallmark embossed wrapping paper - perfect for Valentines! - an unopened vintage tissue roses kit, beautiful old card box, NIP Dept. 56 garland... a bride and groom cake topper that I've been looking for for a project, pretty old pin box... 3 yards of fabric with finished edges -- perfect to make table runners from... and a bag of all these finished quilt squares, plus extra pieces... someone worked very hard on these, and most of the fabric is raw silk. I'm thinking pretty pumpkins! Not shown: a stack lovely blue deckled writing paper, some large mailing envelope
