I mentioned in an earlier post that I was working on saving our much loved Market Umbrella from the rubbish heap. It had been viciously attacked by local marauding mice and was in a terrible state! In order to live gently, Dearest and I search out ways to practice the three R's... Recycle, Re-Use and Rejoice!
After a trip to our local Jo Ann's Craft Store I came home with a small bottle of glue, aptly named "Fabric Fusion" by Aleene. It stated that it permanently adheres fabric after drying for 48 hours.
I cut out flowers from a lovely remnant and began gluing them in place on both sides of the umbrella. I had our oldest Darling Boy carry the umbrella out to our shop, so that I could work on it without the worry of rain spoiling it before it could dry.
After a couple of weeks out in all types of weather, I am happy to report that it has indeed held together and looks quite charming. We are Rejoicing that we were able to gently, and lovingly return a faithful servant to active duty.
I would love to hear how you Recycle, Re-Use and Rejoice...please leave a link or comment for others to enjoy.
Yours so kindredly,
