given a new life

I have always loved to reuse old stuff.  Really it is a way for me to not be considered a hoarder, but that is a post for another day!  I am always amazed at people in their 70’s and 80’s, they have been reusing items their entire life!  They really do not even know how hip and cool they are by today’s standards.  They do it because they have always done it!  What would you do with some of these??

  1. So many nice old pieces here, a joy to browse through! Well, as a jewellery maker, I’m obviously focusing on the first photo, with the chandelier crystals. Looks as if they could almost be used as they are, or mixed with other “things”/beads/metal pieces for a new piece – necklace & earrings?
    I love old keys too, they have a strong symbolic value. Oh, and computer cards/mother boards (saw them in your Etsy shop), they can be pretty exciting to (my experience so far: http://galeriaredelius.wordpress.com/2013/06/26/cooling-off/ )

Let me know what you think?
