Velvet, cashmere, silk, taffeta, are all some of the upcycled “feel me” fabrics behind the one-of-a-kind accessories and home decor made on a budget by Ms. Maude. Finding most of her materials at thrift stores, and yard sales makes it easy to pass the savings on to you, and kudos’ for helping to give new life to a tired sweater or unused vintage button.
Just in! Fair trade recycled bags made in Cambodia helps enable men, women, and children who have been trafficked, impoverished or abandoned to be reintegrated back into society. The STOPstart program is great! Stop the Trafficking. Start a new life. As written on the tag, “Hagar Designs creates beautiful and unique accessories that help disadvantaged women secure income and significantly improve their quality of life through training and employment. Your purchase of this product contributes to the support of Hagar’s social program.” Now how cool is that.
Think of your favorite old record album. Now think of carrying it around as a sassy purse. Oh yeah. Heather has made this a reality. Old record album cover purses. She’s so good she uses only recycled materials, and makes them look like new.
Heather will be the featured artist at happy delusions for the month of August. She will be taking over the window to showcase her talents as she pairs music and art together.

happy delusions just got in a huge order from Blue Q! Included our my favorite, shoppers and handy totes woven from 95% recycled materials. Below are my top 3.
This cutie sandwich is ideal for any PB&J made with love. And how can one go wrong with a brite yellow beaver tote? Seriously? And last is the shopper with the assembly of cupcake properties. Perfect for large carried items such as an order of cupcakes from Common Ground!
Birch trees, deer, clouds all floating in pink and gray. It must be la la land, and I have to tell you it’s a really cute place to be.
This cute tote Made from 95% post consumer waste in the form of used plastic bottles and grain sacks is a much more green way to shop around town.
If you, like me, live in your own world of wonder most the time, I think this is the bag for you.
Also, be sure to pick up the matching la la land lip balm while your here and enjoy the tasty peppermint flavor with a little dose of rosemary.
