I didn't include any projects here from my first two years of blogging, so there's a lot more repurposed junk to see:-)


  1. Love your stuff. Especially those salt and pepper necklaces! You couldn't still have any of those would you? I'm a new follower, found a link to your blog at Knick of Time.

  2. I'm absolutely in love with that radio! As much as I love the old look of those things I think the white really brings out the detail. Very pretty! I also have to ask if you did something to your typewriter to make it look so shiny and new. And furthermore what did you do to it? I have an old 50-60 lb Remington-rand noiseless typewriter and it's a little rusty. I know oiling the keys will make them easier to work with but as far as cleaning it up and making it new again I'm not sure what to do.
    Thank you for sharing all these, you could (if not already) go into business.

  3. Unbelievable! I love every one-especially the radio speaker night light!
