Beautiful Finds at Home

There are lots of renovation going around in our household at the moment. I'm not the only one who is renovating my new place. My parents are going to renovate the old house as well and all of us are now busy packing our rooms.

This morning, I found a bag of these in the backyard: These are actually handmade by my mum in the 1970s to be assembled into household decorative items. She found them today in her closet and was going to throw them away! No way, will I let that happen, these are so pretty! I quickly took 2 pieces and made them into necklaces:


These are definitely Born Again jewelry, with a piece of the past! A lot of fun for me too! :D
