Unconventional Uses

 I love to use the pretty things I buy at yard sales and thrift shops. Most of the time, I purchase them and think to myself "I wonder what I can use this or that for". I recently found this silver compote candy dish and when I see silver I am immediately attracted to it. I get that from my mother, she always had pretty silver and crystal dishes and such.
I display my "bling" bracelets in it

I found a cloche to keep the dust off of them. I don't wear them everyday but when I get all dolled up to go out with my husband, I love to wear my bling.

I store and display my earrings on this tiered tray. It has little holes in it that allow my earrings to hang from perfectly.

I found this pretty "sugar shaker" in my favorite pink and thought it would be perfect to hold my powder. Yes I use Burt's Bees "baby powder". Its very soft and very light. 

My powder is right at hand atop this little shelf. I found it at the Goodwill missing a drawer but I put a little pink tray in the missing slot and it looks perfect in my eyes.

This is a jam jar that holds my bath salts...............I love it

I picked up this "Royal Albert" planter at the flea market for $2.00 and immediately thought of my bathtub. I find that Violets grow nicely in a bathroom and they look so pretty when they bloom.
A crystal cake plate (a garage sale find) displays the things I use on my vanity everyday.  

I believe this to be a silver "cruet" holder
but I use it for my makeup brushes and mascara..........
Everything is at my fingertips (why do I have a pin cushion with my makeup? Because that's where i wanted to put it. I just go with what feels right)

A flower frog organizes my eyeshadow brushes and eyeliner.

I bet you can find a lot of "unconventional uses" for everyday things. I would love to hear about them.
