The Three R's of Ella

I have a new slogan.
Reclaim.Repurpose.Redefine.
 
I love to take old items meant for another age and time and turn them into something new. Give them a fresh start.
We could all use that...
Give me some old tart tins, bingo cards and some Ella-ments
and I am a happy camper.


At this plate setting I used records as plate chargers. A rusty plow spacer layered under a sweet rosepoint
cup and saucer. Shredded paper for a touch of whimsy. A wire cloche that was used onthe farm for who knows what. A runner made from player piano paper as the last touch.
This neat old cabinet needed drawer handles when I bought it. I originally tried to find enough glass
knobs, but decided to take old garden faucets and make them work. It sold the first day...
Love it!

Love your new slogan! You were one of my favorite booths at Dallas Market Center. I did not get a good picture of your booth, so I will have to include you on a future post.
