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 inMy 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

Vintage Dick and Jane Book Handbag
Imagine all the little fingers that went through this classic book of "Fun with Dick and Jane"! I could not resist creating a handbag out of this particular book. The wear of the hardcover gives it character. I also have another Our New Friends Dick and Jane purse listed.
I'm a Grandma of 6 grandchildren from Sunny Saskatchewan! My hobbies are seeking collectibles and upcycling records and books and creating unique purses, clocks, e-reader covers, earring holders, hollow book safes, floating book shelfs. I love the retro era!
