Not what it seems!!

To most people they see this vintage light fixture globe and see exactly that. I see it and see an endless swarm of options! It could be a vase for flowers to warm up a room, or put a candle it it to cast a whole new ambiance on your room. Maybe use it to put cooking utensil in to give your kitchen a little more character. It can be what ever you want it to be! Just because something was made to serve a certain purpose doesn’t mean you have to limit the use to just that. You can get globes like this for super cheap at thrift stores and yard sales. My mom actually got this one for me at a thrift store for 50 cents! ONLY thing to make sure of is it sits flat on the solid end. You don’t want you new globe filled with a candle toppling over and setting your curtains a blaze!!! That wouldn’t be lovely at all. I hope you like this little tip. Sorry I didn’t have any flowers or a candle to put in it.

Vintage saucers as coasters!

Hello dears!

Like most people I don’t like leaving water rings on my tables from glasses and cups. I purchase random vintage saucers from yard sales, thrift stores, and flea markets. Ones that don’t have the rest of the set are usually reasonably cheap. I’ve paid 20 cents for some of them. I crochet little doilies to place in the center of them. I do this because you can get a suction from the bottom of a glass to the saucer. I’ve broken a saucer this way. It was only 20 cents so not a huge loss, but it was a super cute saucer. My favorite saucers are these two green ones I purchased recently. They have a South West shape to them. Of course you could try and find a matching set of 6 or so if that’s more you style. I like mismatched stuff myself. My friend calls my style “worldly”. I’m not into sets of stuff. Here’s my “coasters” that I use in different parts of my apartment. These are just some of the ones I have. Let me know what you think.

They are kind of washed out. The sun was coming through the window pretty good when I took these. The green one is darker than it appears in this picture

I had two of these, but it was lost to not have a doily on it and suction happened. It went crashing to the floor. I'll just use it in a stepping stone!

These go to a set of dishes I have, but I don't really use saucers to eat off of, so they are used as coasters. I love the pattern on these!!

This is the true color of the green one. This is it with the doily on it. I think it's cute!

This is just a simple second blog post, but I think it’s a great way to express yourself! The doily in the picture has some tea stains on it I’m just now noticing. Easy fix, just toss in the wash!! If anyone want the doily pattern just let me know and I’ll make a post about it!

Much love!!!
