I'm not going to be able to run my feature of British handmade craft for the next 2 - 3 weeks unless I suddenly find some time from somewhere! - so it might be a surprise appearance, because I'm particpating in Dorset Art Weeks 2012 from 26th May - 10th June Open Studio and Venues event. I'm running mine from my business address which unfortuantely doesn't have a reliable connection to the internet and absolutely no signal for mobile internet.
However, if you are interested in having a look around - do take a look at Dorset Art Weeks on Google - over 600 artists and crafters in Dorset have opened their doors for the duration.

2. Recycled Cushion - Slowlane Made
3. Recycled champagne bottle - Abundant Glass
4. Silver Recycled Torque - Lesley H Phillips
5. Wood Mouse Recycled Card - Ethel and Iris
6. Floral recycled lace brooch - Recycled Bird
7. Recycled Bridal Fascinator - Borganic
8. Recycled Comic Paper Chain - Lucie Kate & Hazey Jane
9. Recycled pussy cat doll - PollyKrafts
10. Recycled Record Bowl - RescuedRags

Please do note that these images and the designs are the property of the designers and makers (named above), they own the property rights to them and any infringement of their rights could be pursued in court.

I think you'll agree that I've chosen a great selection of recyled items this week - I love them!  I hope you do too.  If you wish to purchase any of the items they are for sale on the above links.

Naturally as I have an interest in recycling, I have a little selection within my Green Collection too!
