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

Vintage 1982 Hasbro Gloworm Glo Worm

Some of you may remember this classic Gloworm from 1982. Press his tummy and he'll glow. Great comfort toy for any child at night. No child should grow up without one! He is very rare and you can find him in my Etsy RetroClassics shop. Check it out plus browse at all my other vintage items - A Blast From the Past!

Beatles Greatist Hits Record Handbag

My newest record handbag creation with the Beatles 20 Greatest Hits Record. All 20 songs listed reached the #1 position on the pop singles charts! Cover has a protective matte clear covering (easily wipes clean). Velcro closure. Handle made of poly web 37" long, which can be used comfortably as a shoulder strap/messenger bag or as a hand held bag. Vinyl material for sides and bottom - double stiched with 2 layers around the edging of sides and bottom - and the top corners backstitched several times. Very strong & durable handbag, yet very soft and light. Lies completely flat when not in use BUT yet it has ample room inside.

You will find it in my Etsy shop.

Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon Handbag

Handbag made from the Classic record cover of Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd. I remember putting on my HUGE headphones and listening to this fabulous album! Today's music doesn't even come close to some of the classic music we had back then. I created this handbag thinking back to the past. You will find it listed in my RetroGrandma Etsy Shop.
