What's It Wednesday #62
Many of you have gorgeous silver that you’ve inherited from family. So beautiful holding such precious memories. From time to time a piece here or there gets left behind, or borrowed and never returned. Those are the pieces that I collect and try to find new uses for. This pretty footed tray once had a lid I think and probably served a fine casserole. It now holds a welcoming tray of toiletries for guest.
This was a sugar shaker that now holds aromatic bath crystals.
This oil and vinegar set is one of my favorites. The missing bottle made me think of another way to use this very ornate set. It now holds mouthwash, a rinse cup, and a precious Victorian silver handled toothbrush.
A lovely silver candy dish becomes an elegant soap dish,
and this blinged up oil and vinegar now holds shampoo and conditioner.
I adore the detail on this olive tray so it holds pearls, buttons, and other gems that I use in my bottle designs.
How about the double-decker toast and butter rack. Perfect on a desk for letters or cards.
A sweet little butter dish, perfect for holding a sweet treat.
The odd sugar bowl can always make a perfect home for a plant,
and a ladle doles out just the right amount of detergent in the laundry room. I was torn between names for this post. Originally I thought “Kitchen Closed” since the items are all kitchen related.
But since they each give me so much pleasure in their new roles (like this pickle castor that holds cotton balls in the bath), I chose silver linings, because behind every cloud you can always find one. Happy hunting!
