Doing some recycling . . .

Hi Friends,
Hope you're enjoying your summer!

I didn't have time to do any posts before the 
antique show, but here are a few things I made to add
some handmade things to our booth.

Some Victorian lady and sheet music bottle cap magnets
(thank you, Graphics Fairy!)

Some photo or business card holders
using old wood spools

and salt shakers with lavender
framed some vintage sheet music songs
that I thought would be cute in a nursery
or child's room . . .

. . . repurposed some old
silver plate knives as letter openers.
I think they're so pretty tied with some vintage lace.

It was a busy few weeks getting ready for the show,
and this week we're off to visit our kids 
and sweet granddaughter,
but I do look forward to catching up
on your wonderful blogs and posts. 
What have you been working on?


  1. What a great way to recycle. I have filled old salt & pepper shakers with lavender, put a bow of old fabric and embellished with old earrings, love the look. Love the spools too!

  3. You have been so busy, my friend. Love the salt and pepper shakers with lavender. What a great idea.

    Have a blast visiting your family. Be safe.

  4. We must be on the same creative wavelength, as I've been framing vintage sheet music, too! Love that look! And your magnets and memo holders are wonderful!
