My friend Alex is incredible at recycling and repurposing objects. You’ll go to her house for dinner and leave with a new old top. Or a book. Or a huge box of dishwashing powder that’s not suitable for her machine (true – I’ve seen it happen). She’s right. There is too much waste in the world. I think she would love Mod Pieces. The clever lady behind it refashions vintage lamps and gives them a new lease on life. Her blog is fab too.
