It’s a new year and it’s time to get inspired to be creative in making our new year wonderful with a thrifty twist. I am going to give you several posts this month within this theme. They will focus on thrifty finds or creative activities to take an old object and give it new life. This not only saves us money, but brings us blessings of not discarding useful items in the landfills while creating beauty or function in our homes and lives.
Today is a reuse that Miss S has been enjoying for years. She loves long skirts and dresses and she has a favorite that is a true staple of her wardrobe. It is a denim wrap skirt I think she has been wearing it for at least 3 years. Here’s the really great part: this skirt was originally worn by her great-grandmother in the 1970’s!
Somehow I ended up with it and Miss S begged it off of me. It is made of the thickest, sturdiest denim that still looks and feels great. Since it is a wrap skirt it accommodates her growth beautifully. When Miss S first wore it, it almost reached her ankles. Now it is about three inches below her knee.
She could seriously live in it! Of course, it was meant to be about knee-length, or just above, so she can still wear it for several more years if she likes.
There you have it – everything old is new again! And functional and beautiful too! What can you reuse? Share with me for inspiration. 🙂
Peace and health,
