My little pad is starting shape more like a home now. I’ve decided to up-cycle as much as I can, not just because I’m trying to be frugal but it also helps the universe in the long run. We’ve become so accustomed to purchasing new items, so much we go without thinking about where and happens to our so called dump, and the run off effects of mass production to our future. Humans are not perfect, I’m still very much a guilty consumer, but I’m trying.
Here’s to putting personalised plates to a good use while they are not attached to a vehicle. Yes, The Imp was one of the many nicknames given by mates during uni days. The name fitted perfectly on my classic Mini. Pity it was stolen.
On a side note, the best discovery just happened ; Human Nature, their strengthening hair range is doing a wonderful job restoring my mop head. In just two weeks, I’ve noticed less hair fall, and healthier looking locks. What’s even better is that the company is avid for a sustainable future in both the environment and the social aspect.
This was an old table I restored with a modern touch. I’m currently obsessed with geometric patterns. Both the table and I are happy to have each other. I can now dine properly, yay!
I’ve been get up to a lot of randomness, I know. This lamp was made for the guest bedroom.
I also made a book shelve out of old copper pipes. NB- Drilling into concrete wall is not easy as drilling plaster walls that I was normally accustomed to. A lot of sweat and procrastination was involved. Urggh!
As parting for this post, I’d like to share a precious find I scored a few years ago at a flea market. This is an authentic antique mechanical cast iron bank that is still in good working order. New things are not necessarily better. I urge you to think carefully on your next spend.
