Waste not, want not

Nothing gets thrown away at the Happy House until it is literally falling apart.
Items are repaired and reused for as long as possible and we recycle or upcycle everything we can..
So when after almost six years, the curtains were so faded by the strong sunshine,thrifty Mama decided they needed replacing she wasn't going to see the material go to waste,
"The material was still good enough to use and I had the idea of making aprons, pot towels and cleaning cloths from it. 
As you  can with our Saturday baking club it has been a great success."
