The sun is out today and it is going to be a beautiful Monday. I have a really busy day planned. Packages to get ready to ship, photos to take, and an apron to finish. Monday, of course, always means shopping on Etsy, and since spring is on its way, I'm trying to get organized. So today I thought I would cruise around Etsy and look for ways to repurpose vintage finds.
What could be prettier than a vintage jar filled with our favorite finds. This old jar has been filled with sea glass, one of my favorite things to collect when visiting the beach.
Old canning jars can be repurposed in so many ways. Here, the seller has made a wonderful wall sconce. These are great, not only to display pretty flowers, but also to hold a candle. I think a group of these hanging on a wall would be a fabulous way to sort and display buttons in your work space.
I love this repurpose of a canning jar. How about several of these hung together?
Old kitchen ware can be reused in so many places in your home. I love old muffin tins. They are a perfect way to sort small items in your craft room, to fill with candles on a coffee table, or to start seedlings in the spring.
How about old rustic ice tongs repurposed into a paper towel holder. I could use these in several places. The kitchen, bathroom, next to the potting bench.......
Vintage drawers are great for organization and display. How about showing off some favorite books.
I would love to have a beautiful antique card catalog. Not only a great way to sort and store, but would look fabulous anywhere.
These have given me some great ideas, now I think I hear breakfast and work calling my name.
