These crystal candy dishes made
their way to my house in the form
of wedding presents and inheritance
items from dear family members.
I don't keep candy around the house
and detest not using the things I own.
I have re-purposed these to hold the
spare grinds from my favorite coffee
and keeping those odd amounts of peas and beans in my cabinet.
I am a firm believer that you should use everything you own, even the "good stuff" everyday even if it isn't for its original intent! This allows my creativity to soar and re-purposing things is alot of fun! Much better than storing wonderful items in boxes in the attic!
Notice the exposed plaster and lathe--another post for another day!
