Oh, I do love a bit of retro quirkiness and a good sense of humour, don't you?
I spotted Lisa Tilley's upcycled bags, boxes and suitcases when I was looking at the photos from The Selvedge Christmas Fair in London yesterday. You know me, eyes everywhere!
A trained textile designer, Lisa takes old magazines, illustrations, photographs,vintage suitcases, bags and reclaimed materials and turns them into something "new".
I really like this decoupage Royal Family trinket box, a mixture of original and new, available from her etsy shop.
