Saturday Shopping List


I do love magazines, I love reading them and I love working for one but I don't love the impact they have on the environment. That's why I'm loving these ingenious ways of re-using them.

1. Recycled Magazine Coasters from The Crafty Tortoise

2. Subscription Pillow - The Vogue Yoga Florence Pillow - made to order from Avril Loreti

3. sweet tooth - set of 10 tiny envelopes with cards (business card sized) from The Envelope, Please

4. New Yorker Notebook - March 2007 from five feet tall I love the name of this shop, hmmm... that may be because I'm 5 feet tall :)

For more fabulous etsy finds from Saturday Shopping List Divas or to play along head over to Charlotte's.

Now onto the real-time shopping!! Brisbanites get your diaries out and pen (not pencil) this one in immediately. The Finders Keepers Market is coming to Brisbane and it's going to be fabulous! It will be at the Old Museum next to the RNA Showgrounds from 31 October - 1 November. So excited about this one, it has a huge following in Sydney and Brisbane is destined to be just as good.

Love those wonderful items made from old magazines! Brilliant. The only thing I use my old magazines for is to add padding to my packages when I ship them. Now I see the possiblities!
