It seems like I have not been posting for eternity. Here is one of my crafting projects: it is a handmade vintage frame. And it is a quick tutorial.

This was a cheap one dollar store wooden picture frame.

I have some vintage white and orange material and I torn it into straps and wrapped the frame with them. I used hot glue gun to attach the fabric straps to the frame.

I have also found a vintage photo album. It was 50+ year old. So, I used a piece of its paper for the back of the frame. Then I found some old and vintage photos in my family album. I have used three of vintage pictures for this vintage frame.

The top photo contains white birds on it. The lower one depicts my uncle in his youth and the lower photo has my mother’s friend with an old camera in her hand. So, it’s a love story. Two birds in love, a man and a woman fond of him and taking a picture of her loved one.

I glued the old photos onto the frame and made few rolled fabric flowers to decorate my vintage handmade photo frame.

Easter fabric crocheted basket


This is a very cute and sweet looking Easter fabric crocheted basket. Easter egg basket is not the only use for it. You can store your candies, fruit or other things in it. You can use it to store your jewelry or crafting supplies. Or, you could go shopping with it.

The size of this Easter fabric crocheted basket is 6 by 10 inches. It is totally go green project. I have used an old curtain and a piece of old brown flower pattern fabric to make the yarn for the rug basket. I have also used an old bag handle to upcycle it and make the basket handle.

Upcycling ideas: flower pots out of baby shoes and plastic bottles.


This is another great and cute upcycling idea. Here in Ukraine we plant onions in the spring at home to grow greens for our salads. It’s very easy, but usually these onion pots do not look good.

Yesterday I found old baby shoes. They are cute and I was sorry to throw them away, so I got this upcycling idea in my head: shoe flower pots. I made them out of plastic bottles. So, it’s another go green project.

Here is a quick tutorial on the shoe flower pot for you:

Find two plastic bottles of suitable sizes. Cut the tops out on the level you need to fit into the shoes. Fill them in with soil, water and plant your flowers or stick in the onions.

One of these shoe pots has an onion in it and I have planted basil into the other one.  Plus I have decorated them with rolled fabric flowers in shabby chic style. I used pieces of vintage photo album paper to adorn the upcycled shoe flower pots with leaves. So, this is totally go green easy project for you.
