Friday's Favorites 10/1 Upcycled

I love October because it means the big churches here have their rummage sales. I stopped at one this morning and picked up 3 colorful skateboards for $2, sterling silver jewelry that I can upcycle for under $1, and a vintage game I can use somehow. So in the spirit of upcycling and recycling I decided to feature some really sweet items from etsy.

Made from recycled yarn!

Who knew beer bottle labels could be so stylish?

Beer Bead Unisex Cuff Bracelet - Upcycled Beer Labels / Leather / Wood $15

I love everything in this shop! I had a really hard time deciding which item to feature because they are all great. I really like the design of these. Plus all her items are extremely affordable! So go there and shop-get your holiday shopping done early.

How cool would this be for a halloween costume? She uses wedding gown samples to make these!
