Recreated, Recycled

A collection of items given a new life. They’ve been rescued, recycled, upcycled, renewed, repurposed … and oh how gorgeous they are!

May 202015

Recreated treasures are a passion of mine. So not only do I love recreating things I also enjoy seeking them out. There are loads of gorgeous ideas around and today I present you with one of those ideas I came across - The Spoon Flower – cute name and beautiful work. This is all about reusing, recycling and reducing - the old, items past, items discarded and re-inventing them into custom stamped silverware and bespoke garden and plant wares that are ideal gifts for the eco-conscious or environmental lover. ReuseRecycle

This is what makes Jade Holi excited.... VintageSpoons
Jade Holi then takes a hammer to her collection of old silverware that she seeks out from op shops or wherever second-hand items can be found and hammers them with a whole lot of love. Workbench

Each item is hand stamped onto a vintage silver plated spoon or fork that has been hammered flat. They are rustic, they show signs of their vintage patina, they are rescued & recycled, they are made in the moment and, as with all handmade, they are all made with love.…. Just beautiful! LoveYouJade is driven by...

... an eco-conscious mind. She strives to create a sustainable life that is full of adventure and lives in hope that the world will be a better place by giving back just a little - sprouting seeds on the window sill, growing flowers in the garden, keeping chooks in the yard, eating vegetables from the patch & looking for rainbows after the rain with my daughters...... Pot display

A little bit vintage, a little fanciful …. Bloom

To find out more or follow Jade’s ramblings take a peek behind the scenes at The Spoon Flower.
To purchase any of Jade’s creations go to her ETSY store or Down That Little Lane. She also makes-to-order if you have a special  saying you’d like stamped or an occasion needing a gift.

So today I’ll share with you a couple of recreated items…. a blast from the past from the EP …[Full story]

Beautiful Things For Beautiful People

Today I’m sharing with you three things – a recreated piece, a printed piece and something just for you. Welcome to Pink Saturday!   This bowl was in a sad state when I bought it from a recycling yard. Originally it would have had a fixed overhead handle, but the handle must have been long gone before I found it. The silver that did cover …[Full story]
