Ah.... the joy of repurposing.... AGAIN

Recently while visiting my cousin Patty in Alexandria, VA, I was introduced to the cutest publication entitled Flea Market Style - 2011. Living in a small town, I don't always have the opportunity to grab this cute magazine due to quantities available and I jumped at the chance to obtain another copy. What cute complimentary ideas to any home.... I am on a serious hunt for nice shirts or blouses that will allow this idea to be embraced. A way-too-tight blouse proved to be a good choice as I made a cute collar for an old glass jar. Look around your house; you probably have some of these. I like to keep almonds in easy reach and this looks so cute. Try it - Thanks Jane (for posting photo of magazine).


  1. I saw these collars creations in the magazine. Doesn't it have a lot of great crafting ideas?! Great job, Bettie!


  2. Good to hear from you Jane. I LOVE LOVE LOVE to recycle and this magazine is chocked full of great ideas.

  3. How cute is that! It is something I never would have thought of. You are so talented Miss Bettie. We need to meet for a day of sewing! YOU would do the sewing, I would provide the moral support!

  4. Hi Victoria - not my idea, but I like the manner of use. Thanks for checking the blog.
