ReCreate By Katie Thompson

"The Scale Clock"

"The Umbrella Chandelier"

"The Suitcase Chair."

I do so like it when I happen across someone doing something truly innovative (and simultaneously creating something fabulous!) with the scrumptiously battered junk we Vintage Housekeepers cannot help but covet...

Katie Thompson is the Cape Town designer at the helm of Recreate, a little company re-purposing found objects and turning them into beautiful somethings, an utterly charming description, which I think you will agree happily sums up her darling collection of scale clocks, typewriter lamps and wash-tub ottomans...

Should Father Christmas feel the urge to nip across to south Africa, I would be absolutely thrilled to find that mint green scale clock sitting under my tree...
