Re-purposing

I continue to re-purpose things that I already have laying around my home.  This vintage
spoon holder was originally made to hold those tiny spoons that you can pick up in
different states as collectibles, but I painted it white and added some of my regular size spoons.

I hung the spoons different ways, but the above photo is the way I liked them best. 

I have a *thing* for pretty vintage silver spoons...can you tell?

I also added a Tim Holtz enamel number in lieu of a vintage enamel number which
I do not have. :)

What have you re-purposed lately? Please do share it with me.
Happy Monday!!

These are beautiful spoons with such lovely detail. I love how you now display them. I had to laugh when you ask what have I repurposed...bottlecaps with kids. Not as elegant but surprisingly charming. I see some pretty things along your sidebar I have to check out! Blessings, Lisa

Fabulous idea, Sandi. I just love it. I might even have to 'steal' it and make one of my own.
