I thought this the perfect post for earth day. I purchased this piece for a whole shiny dollar a few weeks ago from a local thrift store. My husband looked at me like I was crazy and my seven year old asked me if was REALLY going into our house? Boy, they now how to give a person some confidence. LOL It is a good thing I see lots of potential in this piece. The you person who made this was very good at hand stitching. I plan to recycle the piece or rather upcycle it. Upcycle is to take something old and give it new life – to repurpose it. That is what I plan on doing. Not sure exactly what I am going to make this into but several pieces come to mind. I think the birdy would look nice on a pillow and the cars and trains might make something cute for my son. If you have any ideas feel free to leave a comment.
