Thinking of Spring

One of my favorite SToNZ necklaces: Padiddle, turned up in this adorable cheerful treasury on Etsy this week, thanks to the talented curator, Bridget of Bluemoonrose.
Bridget makes these adorable upcycled hats, gloves and plush toys out of items formerly known as sweaters.
Her models are also too cute!

About her motivation Bridget says, "My motto is, reduce...reuse...rejoice. Reduce consumption. Reuse items that others have tired of or no longer need and rejoice in doing something creative for yourself and your world. You can imagine that hand me downs were essential to the family budget. I think we were some of the original up-cyclers. A cardboard box was never just a cardboard box. Halloween costumes were always created and never purchased. Tree forts and playhouses were a neighborhood effort and were constructed from what ever castaways we might find in our travels."
She came from a family of 11 kids! Mind boggling for this only child.
And many of them have fabulously creative Etsy shops, too.
