Facebook Fan Page Raffle Winner

One of my dearest friends from High School won my recent Facebook Fan Page Raffle!

She chose a plarn button bracelet as her prize. She wears a lot of black, grey, and purple, so I made her a bracelet out of a Kohl's bag from West Springfield, MA and a big purple vintage button. Here it is!

I haven't seen her in years, so I think I'm going to tell her she has to meet me for coffee in order to collect her prize!  :)

Stunning Swirl Vintage Button

I hit another vintage button jackpot recently, and just listed this one on Etsy today. It's so cool, I wanted to share it with you all!

It's goldtone plastic, with a black plastic swirl insert. Isn't it amazing?

You can find this vintage button and lots more in my Etsy shop ~ http://www.plarnstar.etsy.com/

Thanks for looking!

Hello and Welcome!

Hello everyone! Welcome to my new blog, which goes along with my (relatively) new Etsy shop ~ http://www.plarnstar.etsy.com/ !

This blog will be about all sorts of eco-friendly things - upcycled, repurposed, recycled, vintage, salvaged, and more. Be sure to stop by often to see my latest posts!

The first person to follow this blog will receive a custom piece of functional plarn art ~ I wonder who it will be, and what they will choose. We'll just have to wait and see...

Thank you for stopping by, and I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Take care,

~ miss chris
