The winter seems to be dragging on so while I wait for spring I thought I would unsew several blazers & jackets to make them into wool pieces that I could use in some primitive projects. Taking them apart is quite the chore - you end up with as much lining, underlining, & other parts that nearly equal the amount of wool that is left!
The construction of a well made blazer has to be admired at this point & you know why they cost so much.
This soft pastel pink blazer, was one of my office blazers some 20 plus years ago & three sizes smaller. LOL - Up-cycling time!
It is a huge job to unsew these beautifully tailored jackets & it really makes you appreciate the work that went into making, no sculpturing them!
Now for some early spring!
Well back to spring, we stopped in at a greenhouse that had just opened for the season, so I indulged in spring plants...
I removed only the mauve flowers from a refresh from my Valentine flowers to place them on this mirrored shelf.
Rabbits & Flowers...
This weekend we will spring ahead in time! Yes & on the 21st spring finally arrives. Next to fall...I love spring! The colour & smell of springtime as the earth comes back to life is exciting, energy forms all around us & brings us too into this season with more sun...more smiling people. :-)
