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

Hopefully Spring is around the corner. With Easter so early this year we won't have tulips blooming where I live. Been kept busy with sales :-) and creating new items. Have you ever watched Unlawful Entry with Kurt Russell? I have an original laser disc of the movie and created a Tote out of the cover.

Busy with NEW Record Album Cover Handbags!

Well I've been sewing up a storm here these last few days. I had to replenish my SOLD purses. Here are a few more new additions to my Record Album Cover Handbags: The Go Gos, Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, The Beatles, Elvis Presley. I would like to get as many made as I can now before gardening season is here. I can't wait to get my hands in the dirt!

My Book Purse FEATURED in ETSY

I'm excited! My Book Purse You and the Law has been featured in a Treasury on Etsy. I've sold one already & happened to have another book with the same title, so I made another. Thanks to ursastudio for featuring one of my book purses!
