Remembering Tomorrow

~Recycled History~
An effort to remember our children, & to save them...
a journey of recycling...

How does this...
a pile of seeming junk, not fit to be worn or beautified

become this,

which inevitably

becomes this gown.
{not such a great photo, it doesnt really show the detail, wow the jacket was hard to make! i had to measure it on me ~since i dont have a dress mannequinn~ late at nights when my sister was asleep.}

"where happy little bluebirds {nest]"
{everyone kept asking me, 'why are their 50 toilet rolls in the cupboard?' :)

i began this feat as part of this project,

which was kind of part of my 'google degree' as i call it :) how i love the things the internet makes accessible, wisdom & beauty & images from all corners of the world

climbing ladders of splendour,

to retrieve loveliness

on behalf of my little sister...

i made this gown for her, & for children everywhere

Children ~ holding their future in our hands!

& this song of togetherness! {how do we organize one of these in Brisbane?}


  1. Hi Chenoa,
    A beautiful gift for you sister and children everywhere. Great job!


  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you,
    Your lovely journal arrived and after a long hard week in the office, it was a real mood lifter. Will do a post over the weekend to share this lovely toned creation with everyone.
    Have a great weekend !

  3. what an amazing project! I love that you wrote about recycling being a gift to our children and that gown is just fabulous.
