Upcyled, Recycled Old Shorts To New Handbag


The colors just jumped out at me when I found this pair of striped denim shorts, like new, at the local thrift store. And I had a small remant of pink rick-rack in my stash that has been begging me to use it on something. Lined with yellow cotton print with tiny pink flowers, and a hidden magnetic snap. I used brass d-rings at each end of the handle so a key clip can be attached if you like. It is available now in my etsy shop.

VictoriaLynn Creations Now Has Collectibles Too!

Dabbling in Deltiology
I dug out a box of postcards in the course of my spring cleaning. I found most of these at estate sales and garage sales. Some of these belong in someone's special collection somewhere and some of these beautiful vintage postcards would be great upcycled into something new, a wooden trinket box with decopauge, a beautiful collage, or just to start your own collection. So I will be listing them in the Vintage Postcard section in my Etsy Shop. I love just browsing these postcards, many of which are towns and landmarks, and scenery. They give me a treat of sorts, taking a little journey through all the towns and places I have yet to experience.

This one is really hard to part with and I really think I should start a new blog on the subject of relationships and this would make a great banner, don't you think? Hmmm. Okay. I will really be thinking about that.
