Or maybe I should have said -upcycled-. Upcycling is the new word for recycling an unloved item into something fabulous. If you want to see upcycling at it’s finest, I suggest you run right over to Etsy. Here’s a few of my favorites featuring upcycling:
I love the Hello Kitty
We love our Bubble up glass.
Check out the stoppers!

I have no affiliation with any of the businesses I have mentioned. In some cases I have purchased items from them and been happy with what I’ve received. In other cases, I have yet to purchase anything so I cannot say how their service is.
