Just because it’s Prince Spaghetti night doesn’t mean that you can’t have spaghetti every friggin’ day of the week! That is if your main goal is to make a killer jacket that will make you the envy of your Rotary Club! I’m not sure how many packages it took to make all these creations, but I’m sure the Friskies jacket had a human consumer seeing that it takes months to go through a bag for one tiny ass cat that eats an ounce a day. I mean, isn’t it like patè? That is some District 9 sh*t. Anyway, if only I had a Capri Sun jacket, I would wear the crap out of it at the next PTA meeting.

Los Angeles -based Beat Up Creations just knows what the public wants- vintage china plates with Gizmo right in the center! This makes tea time such a treat with a bear-faced Marie Antoinette staring back at you through a scatter of scone crumbs! *Swoon*! My favorite has to be the Elizabethan ET or the cat in uniform. Hell! They’re ALL my favorite. Beat Up Creations also does zombie portraits, so make sure to check out their Etsy store. There were seriously too many to post, but they ALL are just lovely and kitschy! Aaaaaand , they are all upcycled. Brilliant work!

Designer Tina Sparkles went ape sh*t will all the wires hanging on the outside of her media center. I would just stuff the wires back under the cabinet and call it a day, but Tina (yes, she *sparkles*!) decide to show those wires who’s boss and made a dress. That’s her tangled in the wires whilst sewing the infamous dress. This was shown at the Keep Austin Beautiful- Recycled Fashion Show . Check out the link for more recylced, upcycled, downcycled,  sidecycled, precycled, ( I’m waiting for a gong.) stuff. Be sure to check out the 6-pack plastic rings and bread tag dress- that’s a whole lot of beers and wonder bread, which is perfect because they’re in Texas. I love how things work out like that.

British designer Robert Bradford made these sculptures out of recycled pieces of toys, plastic junk, buttons, the bread tag that know one knows what to do with, clips and other stuff. I think it’s pretty cool, however, he should include cats in his collection, in my opinion. This is giving me ideas for all the small, tiny toys that my son accumulates from those Kinder Surprise eggs and vending machines. I mean, he has so many that I just dump it into a large cardboard box. Sometimes I see the cats rolling around in it, licking their butt. That can’t be good. One day, I say, that box full of plastic crap will morph into a sculpture for my son’s room.  Thanks, Rob!

Providence, R.I.  based, Salvagge , breathe new life into bottle caps, vinyl records, and paint can lids by turning them into functional housewares or funky jewelry. They must have staked out all the alcoholics’ homes  in Providence … because one door curtain uses 550 bottle caps! That’s a lot of booze! Kidding! My favorite are the paint lids with old Revlon ads that are now coasters. I sort of want to send them all my CDs that I don’t need anymore and see what they come up with. At the moment, I use them as frisbees for my cats. I think I’m gonna stop, though. I’m afraid this will happen….
