Etsy shop

Hey, Froggers. I'm working on my new Etsy shop. I will have a variety of handmade items, and perhaps some vintage items if I can part with them!
Years ago, my Grandma gave me some "old magazines". I looked at them and gasped. They were old Life magazines from the 1930's and 1940's. Since they had been in her barn for several years, they were rather dusty, and some of the covers were slightly tattered, but all in all, they were in good shape. I love the ads and articles, many about being frugal, since after all, it was wartime. Since the magazine pages were still in good shape, but the actual magazines were somewhat falling apart, I decided to upcycle them, and this is what I made.

I made coasters from ceramic tiles. I really try to capture the excellent images and vintage quality from these old pages. I have a set in my living room, and they're always a topic of conversation. Of course, no two are alike, which makes them really unique.

Here's the second set of four.

They are now available in my Etsy shop-
Stay tuned for more goodies!
Fondly, Tami
