Turning old into new - is always fun to do! Since i've been away for a week i haven't been crafty myself, but found these ideas that i really love. Unfortunately this whole weekend i have to work on the magazine finishing layouts, but maybe the next one ...
Hope you're all having a terrific time. As soon as i get time i'll post some fun things about my time in rome!


  1. I love the tank idea, that's so clever!

  2. Good morning my dear friend! What a great thought....goes with my idea of Joie de Vivre...recycling the old. I LOVE IT and I love your mind, that you think fresh, new thoughts for things that someone else would discard. BRAVO! Are you enjoying good weather? We are and again, another day to enjoy this short but precious life! BISOUS! Anita

  3. That tea pot lamp!!! When my boys get a little older & stop breaking everything in site I for sure need one! Actually my littlest just broke my lamp last week. Rascal :)

  4. Martina I was just looking through your magazine & IT IS GORGEOUS!!! The pictures are beautiful & the layout just flows...wish I could read it -looks full of good stuff! I hope you are very proud of it!


  5. Oh my goodness! I absolutley love all of these ideas..the tennis rackets, how clever! but that tea pot lamp...now that is delicious!!!!

    I love the racquet mirrors!
    Have a lovely weekend!

  7. These tennis rackets, what a great idea, Martina. I have an old DONNAY racket, my first one. I started to tennis when I was 8 years old. Thanks for the memories, think I will transform my racket into something like this..
    Wishing you a wonderful new week! xx

  8. Good morning dearest Martina! Thank you so much for traveling over to my post; it is always a joy to see you pop over from Germany! So sorry that you are having so much rain. We had the most glorious weather on Saturday, and yesterday it turned a little too humid, but nice nonetheless. Thankk you for wishing me success with my students! We are all ready now to call it quits for the summer!!!!

    Enjoy the rest of the week, Anita
