Handmade objects always have a story. They have a real character and charm over mass-produced items. My blog is featuring all the handmade items I make and I'm also going to post Free Patterns for crocheting, knitting and other crafts. I'm also going to post my favourite recipes for free! Are you interested in a certain pattern or recipe? Feel free to contact me.

I love to recycle books and records and create unique purses, clocks, IPhone docks, Ereader Tablet Covers, hollow safe books. You can find my crafting in My RETROGRANDMA Etsy Store

I also love to seek out collectible treasures and you can find them in my RetroClassics shop on Etsy

I've had a number of opportunities for my unique handmade items to be featured on many blogs. I LOVE the RETRO ERA and that's why they call me "RETROGRANDMA"! FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/Retrograndma

Retro Fishnet Curtains

My great find at the thrift shop this weekend were some awesome retro daisy accented curtains - in like new condition. Of course anything I buy I need to alter! I couldn't resist them - perfect match to my dining room and I've been searching for something retro for a long time. I cut the top off which was pleated with the old 3-4 prong hooks and used that material for tabs - which gives it a touch of the modern look. Remember the fishnet curtains?? They came in all colours. I found a pair in their original packages! I've been redecorating my home with retro decor lately. I'll show you more photos later on of my findings - spaghetti swag, sphere-shaped pole lamp and matching floor lamp, couch and chair (in like new condition from the 1970's...the plastic was still on the bottom of the couch!) Check back soon...gotta go and craft now.
