My latest discovery... going to thrift stores and turning candle holders upside-down... a whole new purpose! Here are a few I couldn't resist!
This yummy pin cushion is displayed on such a find! By the way, that pin cushion was just given to me by my Mother-in-law. She thinks her Mother-in-law (my husband's Mamaw Bean) made that pin cushion around 40 years ago and my Mother-in-law became the proud owner when Mamaw died in 1978. I am sooo in love with this precious family heirloom... reminds me of a cupcake!
Here's another candle holder that I turned over and it became home to thimbles. Don't you just love it! OK, I am also into anything with a pedestal. The simplest of things just look more elegant when displayed on a pedestal. Don't you think! And I spent maybe 50 cents for each of these treasures. Hey, why not get out some of your candle holders and see if they might have a new purpose! Cuz it's all about repurposing.
