Off to the Lino Forest

We found this lino a few weeks ago at my sisters new house in Clunes.....the pieces were on the shelves inside the kitchen cupboards. The kitchen had bottle green carpet tiles and when my sister removed the carpet tiles, she discovered this same retro lino underneath.
Needless to say, she scrubbed the floor lino and now it looks fabulous!

Anyhow, the lino from the kitchen cupboards was just about to be thrown into the skip when I rescued it (various people were wondering why on earth I wanted to save the lino)...... but it is now on it's way (via good old Aussie Post) to a new home with Liz from Betty Jo Designs. I can't wait to see what fabulous craftiness she can create from it!

A good bit of gleaning! Love that you didn't miss the reuse/recycle opportunity. Must go and have a look at Betty Jo's blog again. Cheers!
