the 3 Rs


ok, ladies (and gentlemen, if any). let me give you some examples of how i interpret the 3 Rs in our tag sale tales motto. look at the photo. these are the things i'm going to describe.

recycling
ceramic bowl: i discovered menorquina ice cream in a restaurant last summer. there are lots of delicious flavors and prices are reasonable, but what i love the most about them is the fact that i get to keep the bowls . i use them all the time, they are great for serving nuts, dried fruit, candy. they also make nice candleholders.
water glass and plate: flea market.

reinventing
paper balls: bought at a christmas decorations final sale. i thought they would make an original decoration, no matter what season.

rediscovering
an icon: brought from south africa. i spotted this beautiful image of an angel in a church storage on the floor. i asked if i could keep it, just like that, and it was mine right away.

Your style and photo-stories are wonderful! Such a good eye for detail. The three R's "r" so true. Without them there isn't much point to going to a tag sale or brocante!
