This green fabric was our shower curtain when we lived at Chautauqua…

We used it to make a big green one of these:

but her boss didn’t like it, so it was never used.)

And some buttons from the traveling neighborhood,

    Hey Joanna, I read an article the other day about the difference between *downcycling* and *upcycling* and you are certainly doing the latter, which is the way to go. Downcylcing = plastic milk container becomes plastic for road bump becomes ?? back into trash. Upcycling = plastic water bottles become used to build a boat!!

  2. Joana Smith says:

    Yes, that's it*
    trash into pearls!

    Aunt Winnie would be proud. By the way, she was a good friend of Bobbie Blair's mom. Chuck

  4. Joana Smith says:

    I hope to let Winnie's colors wave proudly as the Revolution flag, but where is it?
