February highlights | Make, Thrift & Tell



February was a quiet one here on the blog. I'd still like to pick the one entry for the Letters highlights post - it fulfills both the make and thrift aspects of the challenge.

Steph crafted a very nifty window display using the pages of old books. She made vases, flowers and blocks and after a bit of thinking, even a bunting to top it all off. The display was needed to show off the new Unicef greeting cards - it looked great! Comprised of aged white pages and about a zillion tiny printed letters, in my opinion it was the perfect neutral yet interesting background for the cards. See the display here (with the bunting here).

Keeping this nice upcycling idea company in February's line-up, there was a cute crocheted heart card and an enviable collection of vintage journals.


The current theme running for March is Domestic - I hope people are finding this theme easier to link up to with the home/kitchen/family connection. I've got quite a few bits from the thrifting rounds already (mainly kitchenalia), just need to find an uninterrupted half an hour somewhere to take pictures. And just to remind about the rule removed - now old posts are welcome too in the link-up!
