reCOLLETTEtions

   Upcycle, Revamp, Recreate, lets just get creating!!

        reCOLLettetions is a blog about making things, recycling, up-cycling, recreating, whatever you want to call it. I am inspired by vintage, the 1950's in particular, the femininity and classic style of this era is reflected in a lot of my creations.

 I try to avoid buying mass produced anything,opting instead for up-cycled, re-used, repaired, recycled, second hand items. I don't like waste, one woman's trash can be another woman's treasure. Come along for the ride and explore some creative solutions to give things a new lease on life, instructions included!

I think its gone from one extreme to another now though in that kids now talk in letters rather than use the full word like ‘F’ off” which we all know what it means, or ‘ATM’ which means’.......click on image for more
