Tagged Vintage

Carolyn Gavin of Designer Blog has tagged me. I was recently tagged, so I decided to share something different this time. I LOVE repurposing and recycling vintage or found goods - giving them a new and sometimes refreshingly unexpected life!
So I thought I would share 7 people around the web who do this in a way that I enjoy...
Petrie Point Designs [via Design Sponge], take Vintage Swimsuits and frame them beautifully. I love it when clothing has the chance to be art!
A favourite - Di Overton owner and designer of Ghost Furniture expresses this so well... specialising in "Bringing quality furniture back from the dead and making it hauntingly beautiful"! This candle stick is a great example of her work.

Author Danny Seo posted a brilliant giftwrapping idea for bottles, using shirt sleeves. I know what I am going to do with the left over sleeves from the cushion on yesterday's post!

Food and Interior Stylist Paul Lowe purchased some old doileys and made this whimsical corsage amongst a whole bunch of other things! Thanks Carolyn! I've enjoyed the tour myself so far! I'll tell you about the other 3 tomorrow!

What an amazing range of creativity. As always, it leaves me feeling that I need to get out of the bland box!
