I just love it when I find something new created out of old or repurposed items!! I was shopping at Barnes and Nobles bookstore a few weeks ago and ran into a collection of items made from recycled goods. I love ALL of them!
They had baskets/bins made out of recycled newspaper (which was rolled into long thin tubes and then folded into a square/star design) - what an awesome design/look!! (And it looks GREAT on my bookshelf! - yes I had to have one!!).
And then they had little coin purses which were created from used food wrappers (I got one of these for my stepmomma who is a fiber-artist and loved it!).
