Eco Friendly, upcycled, recyled and repurposed!

With the focus on living green I have been looking at everything in our house with a different light.
I found a box with some cloths I had not worn in a while and I decided to try out that 'felting' technique that I have been hearing a lot about and try to reuse or repurposed it

After I washed the sweater in hot water I dried it on hight heat too, it became quite small and thick!

This is the very first item I have ever made with this techinique!
After I wash it and see how it comes out, I might make some more to include in my etsy store

Women's day is March 8th

March 8th is the International Women's day, a day to celebrate women from the past, present and future! Celebrate women for their economic, political and social achievements

In today's world, women earn the majority of college degrees, more women earn law degrees, more graduate as pharmacists and almost half of those completing medical school are women .

Women make up 59%of the American workplace. Woeman bring in half or more of the income in the majority of all Uunited States hoseholds.

Women manage the checkbook and pay the bills in 85% of today's families.

Women remain primarily responsible for the day to day activities associated with managing a hosehold with kids, even when they hold a full time job!

Women account for half of all managers and professionals. Since 1990, 70% of all new business are started by women.

If only all of these statements were true for ALL WOMEN , all over the world! Unfortunately there are still Countries where women are not treated as equal.

Congratulations to all women not only for today, but for everyday of the year! :)

Wonderful history behind vintage items

I opened my vintage store Klassic on Etsy last year when I realized how much interest there was for vintage items, I realized that it was just not fair to keep all those ‘treasures’ stored in a box in our garage when there was someone out there that might give it a new life.
We all have ‘stuff’ we don’t use anymore, but that we don’t really want to throw away because it might be dated but still in good shape so it just sits there, accumulating dust , preventing energy to move freely.

Having Klassic has been a great experience, it has allowed us to ‘clean’ a little but the most important aspect of it has been the satisfaction of knowing that this ‘treasures’ have moved on to a better life, they will be cherished , they will be displayed, used and will have a totally new life!
Like this Mickey Mouse scratcher that my husband bought in one of his annual Disneyland trips when he was a little boy, He really liked it until one day he had no place for it and went into storage to make room for new memories. A few months ago while we were going through some of his childhood memory boxes, we found it and we thought it was time for Mickey to get a new home.
Mickey did get a new home, and what a home!! Barbara the wonderful lady that bought the scratcher told me that she was buying it for her husband’s daughter (who is now 50) , her step daughter had told her that when she was little they went to Disneyland and she wanted to get one of this Mickey Scratchers, but she didn’t get it and guess what? She never forgot about it!

So Barbara thought it would be a wonderful gift for her and even thought about putting it in a shadow box for it. Barbara said she couldn’t wait to see her step daughter’s face when she gets it , her husband thinks she will cry!
Barbara shared with me that Tina’s son is getting married in March and she will go to the wedding and that is when she will give her the present.

Thinking that one little girl’s dream of finally getting that childhood Disneyland souvenir makes us realize how selfish it is to keep those treasures from bringing happiness to others. Vintage has history and there is always someone that appreciates it! This is for you Barbara! I hope Tina loves the present and I think she will love you even more for being so thoughtful and giving her this part of her childhood back!!Thank you for sharing the story and giving me permission to share it with others

Message of the day

I got this by email and I thought it was worth sharing!
I don't care if you lick windows, take the special bus or occasionally pee on yourself. You hang in there, sunshine - you're special. Every sixty seconds you spend angry, upset or mad, is a full minute of happiness you'll never get back.
Today's Message of the Day is: Life is short, Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here, we should dance

Happy Birthday Dr.Seuss
