Hello fellow bloggers,
I have a quite a few OLD things around my house (my grandmother and my mother have saved many attractive treasures) and I enjoy discovering new inventive ways to give them a NEW PURPOSE in my home and garden. I love them all and I am sure that's why I enjoy shopping for vintage treasures.
I received a quite a few emails about the hanging vase in my RED post. So I decided to let everyone know about this clever re-purposed item...
I was wondering how many of you noticed that this vase is actually an old light bulb! Isn't it great?! Rita at The Barn sells them and I just fell in love with it and had to add it to my "New Purpose" collection.
In a similar way, I just love old cameras they have so much character and they are part of special memories from my childhood. Recently, I purchased a similar camera to the ones I loved to play with when I was young. Looking through the old lense and seeing the image was as fun now as it was back then. I brought it home and my photographer / husband used it to capture some interesting shots...what do you think?
I'm also kind of crazy about birdbaths...and this one is on my side yard it's visible from my dining room. The bird bath is about ten years old and I am sure that the the old window hanging behind it is nearly sixty years old...I added it as a backdrop for charm...I couldn't throw it away! (Oh no, that sounds just like my mom). Anyway, at least I gave it a new purpose.
So, don't forget to look for Old things this Summer and then give them a New Purpose, if you get a chance please take a few snapshots of them and share them with us All in Blog Land!
