3 R's at 101

This, I just realized, is my 101 st post.

I had intended to do a 3 R's post -
starting with Re-use

Pics from the catalogue of a very hoity toity store.

Have you seen the accessories they are showing for Spring and Summer?
Have you seen the Prices?

I'm thinking I should take myself to the local beading store that opened up here last Fall, where they have all sorts of fabulous jewelry findings, and cut apart some of my own personal stuff (some of which qualifies for vintage at this point) and make it into something a little more up-to-date.

My stuff - I just opened this box that has been under the bed since I moved here 2 1/2 years ago, and found a treasure trove of beads! Individual detail pics can be found here if you want to see more.
[Julie my friend whom I haven't talked to in way tooo long...this new free time you have may be your opportunity to take that class you were talking about last July and make yourself something fabulous (fabbo?!)]

Reduce - stash reduction is coming along nicely. I've just finished knitting up another sk of the Noro on the second Lady E.

Recycle - paperback reading to pass on. None of it will tax your mind. If you want any or all drop me a comment and an email (my email address is on the sidebar under my profile) with your snail mail addy. And in honor of my passing the 100th posting mark, I'll send them to you gratis.

I looked ;-) but you knew I would, didn't you? I love jewelry but I'm too cheap to buy myself any and my husband knows better than to guess what I might like.

Pretty beads!

I think I see a couple of my TBR books in that stack. When you want to de-stash your historical stuff, I, strictly as a concerned friend, stand ready to take them off your hands. ;)

Becky said...

Great stash of beads. I think taking a class is a good way to motivate toward doing something new. It works for me. :)

Carrie K said...

On, and congrats on the 101st post.

Oh, I'll take anything from just pre-Norman conquest to.....well, now w/Moll Flanders, I'm getting into post Liz I.

Can you email me for my snail address? I'd email you, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Great idea about the necklaces....think I will go dig up a few myself!

Jae said...

Congrats on 101! I'd take some of the books, but I've read almost all of them. :)

What a great idea though. I usually pass them off on my mom or SIL.

I've always wondered about the correlation between knitters and mysteries with the words 'death,' 'die, or 'dying' in the titles.(!) I'm tempted by 'See Jane Die' but have 5 Sujata Masseys on my shelf. RE: cable and copyright. I'm taking the idea of the jumbo cable and reworking it into a completely different design, deconstructing it as it were. Let's see what shows up at Gap, come autumn. Congrats on 101! Good Luck w/jewelry!

I liked Digital Fortress a lot - much better than The DaVinci Code.
