WELL, WELL, WELL...I was worng usning the term recycled - it seems to be a new* term that describes perfectly my work: UPCYCLED!

UPCYCLING: is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value.
The first recorded use of the term upcycling was by Reiner Pilz of Pilz GmbH in an article by Thornton Kay of Salvo in 1994.[1]

We talked about the impending EU Demolition Waste Streams directive. "Recycling," he said, "I call it downcycling. They smash bricks, they smash everything. What we need is upcycling where old products are given more value not less." 
The goal of upcycling is to prevent wasting potentially useful materials by making use of existing ones. This reduces the consumption of new raw materials when creating new products. Reducing the use of new raw materials can result in a reduction of energy usage, air pollutionwater pollution and even greenhouse gas emissions.

.....and that is exacly what I do! when things have no longer use, I transform them into something different, unique and from my point of view....LOVELY.
