Upcycled Linky Party {2}

No better time to party than on a Monday, right?  We had some terrific entries, I really loved what everyone linked up.  But, I've been tasked the difficult decision of which links to highlight.  So, before we get to all of the April Foolin' around, here are some highlights from last week's party.

I loved this simple repurpose of a toolbox and some tin cans into an Art Caddy.  Be sure to visit Christine over on her blog Little Brags for all the details.


 And then there's this one, I had to highlight this project because it was such a clever upcycle and you can't fully appreciate it with just a glance.  So for those of you who didn't click through last week, check out these earrings from Wildcraft Vita.  They are made from real pressed daisies and squashed Nespresso capsules! Be sure to visit her blog to see how she made them.


 And finally, a Etsy shop highlight comes from Goat and Kettle.  The ring is made from an actual vintage VW key.  They don't make keys like that anymore!


Now for Linky Party #2, here are the rules:

1.  Feel free to link up no more than one upcycled tutorial that you created and one upcycled item from your shop each week.
2.  Please don't link up the same items or blog posts as in previous weeks, let's keep it fresh.
3.  Follow Love 2 Upcycle by email or Google connect.
4.  This is a party so socialize!  Visit at least one shared link and leave a meaningful comment or "favorite" it if it is an Etsy shop item.  It would be nice if you followed them as well, but it is not required.
5.  Please keep it family friendly and upcycled!  We reserve the right to remove any links that aren't appropriate.

  7. Hi Tricia, do you have to have an etsy shop for this party - I just do occasional blog posts about upcycled crafts I have done but don't have etsy shop!
