Repurposed & Revalued

I love making old things new and worth while again. Things that might have gotten discarded or forgotten about. Recycling, repurposing, upclycling, whatever you want to call it. So came my shop title, The Salvaged Sparrow from Matthew 10:29-31.

I love old books, especially old dictionaries with discolored edges and an old smell. (you know, like your grandma's closet?) I wanted to take the dictionary pages and make them into something shabby chic, farmhouse, cottage decor. Something that will spark a conversation and something that is affordable to everyone. Most of my prints are $8 and I love doing custom orders. I especially love the stories I receive as to why people are ordering. From the groom ordering the You are My Sunshine print for his wife to a daughter ordering a custom print for her parents anniversary. Love. It.

I also have another baby called The Alpha Project. It's taking ordinary objects around us and creating a custom name print. These are so great for weddings and anniversaries. This is truly a gift that will be treasured forever.

Thanks for stopping by and hanging out. I hope you see something you like, if not, just let me know.
