My First Folksy Friday

Right, I'm going to attempt my first Folksy Friday today! This is where I pick a theme and showcase some of the lovely things available on Folksy! Whilst trying hard not to succumb and spend money that I don't have.

Anyway, theme for this week is RECYCLING! I love the idea of
making something new and useful out of something that is no longer
needed or past its usefulness!

When I was a kid, I used to love playing in my Mom's button tin.
All those pretty mother of pearl buttons, and the big shiny ones
off Dad's old coat! This bracelet made from old buttons is right up
my street! http://www.folksy.com/shops/Recycloanalyst

When my Nan first taught me to crochet, I used to cut old strips
of fabric up and use a huge hook to crochet small rugs for my play
house! This lovely pink rug reminds of that!

If you're stuck with something to do with your old vinyl 45's,
then have a go at something like this funky bracelet!

My last item is one that I'm going to show my hubby! Finally, he'll find something to do with his old bicycle tyres!!


Well, I hope that you like my choice of items for my first Folksy Friday! I'm off back to Folksy now to see if I can find something nice for next weeks blog!!!
