Recycling for style

A few years ago, during one of my frequent purges which are necessary as I love tag sales and flea markets, I found myself looking at several pickle/relish dishes. At one time I did use them over the holidays for pickles, olives, and the occasion hors d’Ouevre. They were much too pretty to get rid off (a bit of a problem thinking that way during a purge, but….) so I put them off to the side to ponder the situation. IMG_1557

And then it dawned on me. What a perfect way to organize some of my knitting/crocheting accessories. The dishes have small compartments and will sit on the shelf under the coffee table quite nicely.

So, now that I had a plan for the lovely dishes I began viewing my shopping trips a bit differently. Doesn’t everyone need a stitch holder container and how can you just walk away and leave this lovely little creamer all by its lonesome at a sale?

Do you have items that you’ve brought to life with a new purpose?
