I Love To Repurpose Found Objects!


Today I listed ( on Etsy.com) a sweet teacup by Haviland - France-Limoges.

I’ve had this cup for years. I found it at a tag sale (garage sale), when I lived in Denver.

It didn’t have the matching saucer, but that never stops me from purchasing a teacup ( or any other object) that doesn’t come with the matching companion piece. It allows me to get out of the box - mix and match with another piece that is in the same color palette , or repurpose the item.

A couple of ideas to reuse this piece would be to utilize it as a trinket container, or as a vessel to hold a votive candle.
I love the charm it adds to a home when using objects in unexpected ways!
