I think I've mentioned before how much I love Peppermint mag. It's filled with eco fashion and lifestyle and just general prettiness.
This issue is soooo extra special because on the cover is my gorgeous gal pal, Renee Anne. Doesn't she look amazing??
That's the 'excitement' part. The 'times two' part is that that I have stolen a little appearance in the 'Renee issue', appearing as the subject of this issue's 'Meet Your Maker' so I have a little interview and pic (with my 7 month pregnant belly hiding behind my desk!!).
As promised...here is the 'after' shot to my earlier post about the vintage napkins I planned to turn into bridesmaids clutches.
So far I have only made one but I have listed it for sale individually in my shop and I will gladly create some more if someone is interested in a bridesmaid set. I think these would be seriously cute for a whimsical summer wedding and would add a touch of folksy cool.
With motherhood hurtling towards my life at the speed of lightning, I haven't really had time to sit down and consider what type of mum I'm going to be. Is that something people usually do?
What I do know is that I want to be the kind of mum who throws fabulous birthday parties and helps all the guests make their own personalised cushion covers from recycled fabrics and ribbons like this party featured over at Decor8. Sure beats pin the tail on the donkey.
I love having flowers in my home. In my workspace, in my bathroom, in my kitchen, well in most spaces. But I'm not very good at putting them in vases.
Perhaps it's that I don't have a vase that I love, maybe it's that I've always lived in the inner city where storage is at a premium and vases take up a ton of space...or maybe it's the recycling junkie in me. Why buy a vase when you're about to throw out used glass jars and tin cans. Or when you have vintage tea pots and tea cups and milk jugs collecting dust in the cupboard??
I just had a bit of a splurge on Etsy and picked up this gorgeous print and even more gorgeous little pinafore from Belle and Boo.
That's nice Jen, you say...but aren't you a bit ah, old for that kind of get up?
Um yep! But they're little gifts for my baby girl who will be coming in to the world in May. Can't believe it has taken me this long to blog about my pregnancy! But it's true - I'm going to be a mama. Soon!
Hi. I’m Jennie Smith.
I like recycling. I like trying to preserve our amazing planet too.
I also like designing and wearing pretty things.
Unfortunately these interests are often contradictory.
So...I created ‘Rejenerate’. Just so I could, you know, get all my interests on the same page.
Now I spend most of my time hunting down vintage fabrics, pre-loved clothes, unloved curtains and recycled bits and pieces and upcycling them into lovely new handbags and fashion accessories.
That way I can still sleep at night if I have the urge to accessorise each outfit with a different handbag.
And so can you.
