You know how new moms wake up in the middle of the night in a panic because they hear the slightest movement from their newborn? Well, apparently, I have new mom syndrome over Salvaged Grace. If I fall asleep writing a post (twice now!), I wake up at 4am in a panic.
The side benefit is that I then can’t fall back asleep and take to Google Readering. And I discover things like these amazingly gorgeous holiday decorations at the Danish Embassy in DC, via Thoughtful Day. All this winter wonderland goodness was made using salvaged and recycled materials. Specifically coffee filters, paper towels, large-scale printing paper, and discarded paper documents. Those huge amorphous garlands were created by weaving Christmas lights through chicken wire and covering with the paper sheets and flower decorations. The inspiration came from Hans Christian Anderson’s The Snow Queen.
Old issues of the Financial Times were used to make this beautiful rose.
I LOVE this. So simple. So lovely.
