Making Something New Again: Vintage Goodies to Re-Purpose

Saw this lovely post on Freshly Blended about vintage vessels and it led me to the delightful Etsy Shop, Sweetshorn. Vintage carafes, mugs, cookware and all sorts of goodies can be found by perusing this site! But what I love most about this shop is that it presents the opportunity to re-purpose something vintage (or simply previously used) into a new and interesting piece of decor or artwork. For instance, the mugs shown below could be used as floral vases in your wedding, while the little bowls at the bottom could hold tea lights. And afterwards, the life of these items could only continue to give back. Get creative and enjoy the eco-friendly aspect of re-using and re-purposing!

From Top to Bottom:
Floral Mugs
Pyrex Carafe
Red Turkish Pot
Lotus Bowl Trio

I love your ideas. Not all we thought is trash is trash. We can use them for another purpose.
