Fun Repurposing Items ~

I love to use items in a different way than they were intended so I thought I would share a few of my ideas today.
This is a vintage comb tin (I think) that I have in my bathroom and I put lotions, mascara and other goodies in it~ A vintage planter in my kitchen holds tea bags ~
I use vintage butter pats to hold my teabag after taking it out of my tea~
Vintage teacups are great for a lot of things...they hold many items. This one is in my craft room~
A vintage vase holding pens ~
Another vintage planter holding hubbys tea bags...we like our tea...lol ~
I think I have shared this one before. A vintage match holder in my bathroom holding q-tips ~
Where did this little sweetie come from? Somehow she snuck in here. LOL Before I could blink she hopped up and grabbed two q-tips...
Then hopped down and instantly proceeded to put them in her ears!!! Of course I had to snap a photograph, but then I grabbed them and said "You should never put these in your ears"...Love her to pieces...I don't repurpose her...I LOVE her to death just as intended by my Creator! Have a lovely day today.
Blessings~

I love using things in ways different than intended! But some I like to use in their intended way, too! I especially love the McCoy flower pot (Daisy) in that Aqua green ~ I collect them so if you are ever wanting to part with it please let me know! :~}
Blessings!
P.S. Aren't grandbabies just the best?!
