UP-Cycled!

In case you are not familiar with the term ‘up cycled’, let me fill you in…up cycling is when you take an item that would otherwise be used for something else, trashed, or collecting dust somewhere, make it into something new (or new to you) that can be used and that is totally unique and fabulous! Up cycling is one of my favorite things, I love it, love it, love it! Check out these fabulous examples I came up with today on Etsy!
