Yesterday's Trash... because everything has a re-purpose!

I scour the flea markets, rummage and yard sales, antique shows and the ground I walk on to find discarded items of yesterday. I see what's beautiful about them and I showcase that in something new.

If it wasn't my job to take junk and upcycle it, I'd still be hunting for junk all year round. It's an addiction I just happened to turn into a hobby which turned into a livelihood.

Even when I go on vacation to beautiful, interesting and unique places, I find myself looking down at the ground to see what goodies are there for repurposing! I have to remind myself to look up at the nice architecture... oh yeah, and people (oops, sorry sir!).

But if I can't find exactly what I need from days gone by, well... then I just make it myself and make it look like it's a vintage piece. Everything new is old again!

Thanks for stopping by!
Michelle xoxo

    I fell in love with junk as soon as I could pick stuff up off the ground. That curiosity grew into an obsession with flea markets, vintage goods, antique anything and general junk. I repurpose these items into new and unusual art & jewelry pieces.
