Thrifty Thursday

We all believe in the wedding tradition... something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. In these times of economic cut backs, recycle, reuse and sustainability, good design and creativity don't have to take a hit! Aren't we all making attempts to green our lives... at least a little?...These days it's about being creative and working with what you have. I'm a fabric collector and have been for years. I have upholstery weight and drapery pieces that are beautiful. I even have locally made fabric I collected on a trip to Africa 20 years ago this May. Occasionally I drape a table or buffet with them. Now is the perfect opportunity to take this much loved fabric collection and see what I can come up with. I'm headed to a few thrift shops to see what's available for repurposing... recycling and reusing....I hope to report back later today, if not ....tomorrow.
