Vintage Finds & Recycled Craft

A vintage tablecloth discovered today. Never been used $5.00.

Teacup saucer and plate (not shown) house warming gift from an older friend, it was her grandmothers. Very special indeed.

Sugar bowl is a find from earlier in the year.

Now I try so hard not to use plastic bags, but some still manage to find there way into my home.
Today we put them to another use. The girls and I enjoyed cutting them up then stapling them to string to create this weather proof bunting to decorate our veggie patch.

Planted seeds and seedlings two days ago.

I adore your table cloth - I just LOVE unearthing vintage kitchen linen, especially when they are pieces that have never been used - probably sat for years in someone's glory box! And your weather proof bunting idea is very fabulouso! Well done, I say.

The bunting is genius, Alison! I've made a wreath from plastic bags which was a fun thing to do.
