But enough about vacuums. There are more important things to think about. Like this gorgeous flower, not from our garden, but who cares?:
Or this denim-pocket wall-hanging craft organizer, upcycled from stuff around the house, now hanging in the office/guest room/sewing lair:
Or the notes Ms. Addie leaves around the house, like this little invitation for a movie night, to her friend Sadie:
Or, newly sewn cushions for old chairs:
Or, these wacky, off-kilter papier-mache bowls, made by the Schneider clan from a recipe in Amanda Soule's new book Handmade Home (love it, love it). Get it, and then you, too, can upcycle your brains out.
