A Happy Give-away – RELOVED MAGAZINE

I  have been  meaning to do this Giveaway for a week now, but I have  been over at my Mum’s for a well earned break…so hence this giveaway is late! but better late than never ay!

Well here goes…I have 3 copies of RELOVED Magazine to give-away…Yep it’s the lovely magazine that my home has been featured in this month!

  It was the original idea, that I was going to offer a giveaway for this Magazine, when I wrote the article for RELOVED, but by the time I received them and then what with my break…it has got until now, that I have been able to get it done…so I am so sorry for the delay my lovelies…

So come on then folks! for a chance to win a copy of this fabulous magazine, leave a comment below about something you have up-cycled lately! You can leave as many separate comments as you like for a higher chance of winning and the giveaway is open to the whole of the world not just the UAM DRAK 😉

    I love your blog Happy – and that magazine is a thing of my dreams, I'd LOVE a copy!! My latest upcycled thingy is a set of fairy lights that I took the shades off and replaced them with Barbie clothes, dresses and skirts mostly – that I bought a bag of for next to nothing at a car boot sale!!

    I'm still quite new on the up cycling side of things, but my recent quick project was to mod-podge some amazing printed wrapping paper (sheep in knitted jumpers and wellingtons!) onto a 60s teak tea tray, that now carries my breakfast cuppa every morning!

    I recently made a shawl out of silk and fabrics with Chinese images on them. I have a box full of fabric scraps from when I worked at a fabric showroom and thought of the idea on a recent trip to France. Thanks for the chance!!I would LOVE to receive that issue!Sandysandbeech@hotmail.com

    My next garden project I'm upcycling is a Garden Mushroom/Gnome Home. I found a wooden solid milk bottle shaped game piece from one of those carnival games. I am going to paint it then paint and old metal, rusty enamelware wash pan. The wash pan will be red with white polka dots. The milk bottle will be white. I will turn the pan upside down and place over the milk bottle to make a Mushroom. Both of these items were picked up for cheap at a thrift store. They were bound for the garbage. Once the Mushroom is done, I have a vintage Gnome that awaits this as his new home in my Garden.

    Hi Happy. I have so many projects going at the same time that it keeps things interesting. Currently, I'm working on turning an old, wooden toilet chair into a garden planter. It is a simple chair with a lid that lifts up to insert the chamber pot as you call them there in the UK. This potty was rescued from a small farm and it is not at all worth restoring. So, I'm painting it then inserting a large fern into the chamber pot area. I'm leaving the lid up for added fun. It will go on one of my porches. Congrats on your article Happy. Would love to see the mag. I tried to find it here, but no such luck.

    I picked up a twin bed headboard from a neighbor's castaways the other week…the top has a gentle curve to it that just screamed out "sign" to me…I do plan to paint it and have my sign artist hubby help me letter it. But that doesn't count since the headboard is still in the back of my car! I did upcycle a pasta sauce jar by crocheting a pretty cover for it & now I store my clothespins in it….hopefully that counts? Congrats on being featured in the magazine…it looks like a fantastic publication <3Smiles, DianeM

    I have an H and M linen blazer from about 12 years ago that is still quite lovely but way too small for me as I was like a whippet back then. So, I am upcycling it by changing the buttons for some prettier ones and adding a little lace to the pocket and an iron on blue bird; will then sell at my first vintage/handmade fair 🙂 http://asaucystitch.blogspot.co.uk/

    Hi Happy, love your style and ethos. we recently up cycled a really old dresser that was destined for the skip, my dad and I fixed the rotten bottom, my step mum painted it and I did the distressing. Now something that was going to be thrown away is now a useful beautiful piece of furniture once me. I love being a vintage girl!!!

    I love that you are published. I haven't ever seen that magazine before but it sounds like a goodie. One of my latest upcycling projects was a lampshade made from vintage doilies.Danielle

    I love to reuse old materials to make new things. Recently I used an old doily to make a pillow.

    My most recent (and favourite) upcycled project is my cast iron fireplace. I bought it for £40 on ebay, and with a lot of elbow grease, spray paint and new tiles it looks like a completely different item. It's the perfect centre piece for my living room!

    Lo que más me gusta de tu blog es la decoración y cómo eres capaz de convertir algo común en un artículo de culto. Me encanta.
