I love the idea of taking old items especially those that are bound for the trash bins being remaked into new items. Vintage inspired crafts and recycled items are great items for decorating the home. Besides reducing our carbon footprint, using recycled items is a way to give a new dimension to the beauty of your home. I really like this lovely Rustic Display Box from Mothology.com. Made from recycled pine, this rustic cubby is great for displaying the precious photos or mementos and when placed at the entryway, you can even use it to hold your keys, blackberry or spare change.

When I was going through the roadside assistance plan, a friend called and asked me if I know where she can find nice cover-ups. She will be attending her sister’s wedding dinner next month and has found a very nice dress to wear. However, she wants her shoulders to be covered and has problem finding a nice cardi or jacket. I went online and found a few beautiful boleros. I hope my friend would like them.
