My Bead soup has arrived!!
My partner Elke has sent me these lovely beads for the Bead Soup Blog party.
Don't you think the pinwheels are wonderful. She chose colours I particularly like, just lovely for spring. I like the dragonfly clasp too.You can find out what I sent out to her on elleraskleinesatelier.blogspot.com
I hope Elke likes what I sent her. I use vintage and recycled old necklaces and sent her a lovely vintage Bead soup.
I love all the blog hopping to see what other people have been sent.

- Welcome to the Room for Change Blog! I am a textile designer who loves auctions, rummaging through car boot sales, second-hand shops and being creative. Anything old and broken, or vintage that has outlived its usefulness, I can mend and transform into pieces that are usable again. I make an eclectic mix of colourful sometimes vintage bazaar style pieces that are sometimes slightly kitsch, sometimes romantic and shabby chic but always visually stimulating and fun to wear or to have in your house. I creatively up-cycle, making new products of better quality and wherever possible I use recycled materials. Useless bits and bobs can be converted into higher value items that can be useful for a long time. In this blog I will chronicle the creations I make and sell on the website. Grab a cup of tea and I hope I can inspire you. Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. (as George Bernhard Shaw said) because in all of us and the world around us there is room for change. Marjolein
