Doilies, doilies and more doilies

I love doilies. I have always been a bit of a doily girl. They are so pretty, they appeal to the vintage side of my personality.  They are charming and evoke memories of days gone by, of sipping tea from gorgeous china cups; women wearing gloves and hats; of all the pretty things, oh I […]

Recycle jeans into a bag

Recycle jeans into a bag

Today I am going to show you how to recycle jeans.  This is something I have always wanted to do.  I purchased a bag of jeans (5-6 pairs) from a charity shop during the week with the thought that I could recycle them.  I used Google (what did we ever do without Google!!) to find out […]
