Wikipedia defines upcycling as the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value. In the arts and craft community, it is to create a work of art or product with new form or function. A fantastic trend for the health of our planet and the economy! I can't pass up a thrift shop, flea market or yard sale for fear of missing out on a treasure trove of items I can add to my bulging studio. Which is exactly why it is bulging! 

So on this cozy Sunday morning with coffee and Etsy, I decided to call my latest treasury: Upcycle.
And something about the colors pink and peach always create a nostalgic feeling for all things grandmotherly for me, hence the color scheme I've chosen. I hope you enjoy these treasures as much as I did finding them!

  1. Beautiful treasury Cat! I am addicted to thrift shops too. The bulging studio sounds familiar too although my treasures have spread from the spare room to every other room in the house.
