Friday evening Water To Wine celebrated the opening of their new studio space on Lehrter Strasse 69A with a close up presentation of the upcycling design process from start to glorious finish.  In front of a fascinated crowd host & upcycling designer Sarah Schwesig transformed a preloved men's shirt into gorgeous peg leg trousers with wrap around waistband. However I was even more captivated by a DIY earphone-necklace wrapped around Sarah's neck which she made from reused plastic beads and bright green embroidery yarn - a supercool and very useful accessory.  
Not that she needed it since the event was supported by an intimate acoustic performance from Indie Alternative Rock band The Chapped Lips. Cracking I'd say :))


June calls for some decorating. It might be a bit late for a spring rearrangement but since I have been completely tied up with Fashion Revolution Germany I feel now is a good time to share this little idea with you to freshen up your work or living space :)  I wanted to re-use some gorgeous glass bottles I've been collecting by turning them into flower vases for my front room. Since I can't throw anything away without trying to give it a second life I've decided to keep my birthday flowers from last September.  Dried up I've found them even more beautiful glowing in shades of vintage green & coral oranges. Tucked into a simple shaped clear bottle & against a white/ black backdrop they add a cool botanical touch to any table or sideboard plus I like the idea of not having to water them ;)
