Im Thinking Green ~

Well not Green like in Fresh Spring things or St. Patricks Day BUT GREEN as in Earth friendly.

Im still Loving my Pinks! However.... Im thinking of focusing a bit on Recycled, reused, revamped materials in my designs. Many ETSY artists are Earth Friendly with their creations. Some are new to it but others are spreading the word to those who have no clue.

So My little part is to Go Green too! Well try it as much as I can.

The Little Pink stool in the Photo above is made from "salvaged" porch spidles for the legs. They were very Dark stained Old junky parts, took layers of yucky paint off & then had to deal with the sunk in stain. but I DID IT!

I made several of them with my Found treasures (junky old spindels)
I use to make alot of little benches & chairs with Old parts (wooden trims,moldings,ballisters etc)for a girl in Texas (years ago before we moved) LOVED IT!

I absolutely LOVE the stool. I had a hard time parting with the other two. so sweet & charming.

who would have known the little history behind such a New Posh Piece for little ones. (safe of course from lead & icky things) Im full aware of all the child safety codes/laws. This mommy doesn't risk anything.

soooo all you creative bloggers.... & friends. Keep checking back on my Etsy for now to see what other treasures I come up with. ~

Im going to realy try to focus on RECYCLED/SALVAGED pieces for my designs.

I use alot of parts already but im going to TRY to only use found pieces. (search Etsy & such for scrap ribbons & still wonderful & CLEAN expensive ribbons, just from other designers that sew etc...) recycling does not mean YUCK. you would be surprised what I can do.
This Sweet Cherub Lilac Board was a salvaged wooden board. I bought the metal hooks new but Must look for salvaged/recycled ones. If you have any you want to get rid of..... send them my way, I'll be your new best friend! : )
