The Beauty of Upcycling


I discovered the sweetest shop on Etsy this week - A World Invented. Hanna Vanderstoel is the shop owner and person responsible for making this shop so special! She upcycles vintage purses, little tins, boxes and pendants using vintage lace, buttons, ribbons, flowers and feathers. One look at her shop and you can see the special attention she gives to each item. The talent does not stop there - Hanna is also a painter AND she and her husband have an art studio for children called Van Grow. See aworldinvented on Etsy for wonderful gifts and treasures!
