I have a pair of cream colored reticulated garden stools.
They used to be at the top of my bookcases.
Now one is here:
Sits next to the chair in the Great Room.
I have another one and had an “epiphany” . .
~ ~ to turn it into a large vase!
I placed some felt pads on the top to stabilize it . .
~ ~ as the top will be the “bottom” of the vase.
Turned the garden stool upside down . . .
Added some ivy, twigs and branches from my Forsythia bush . .
Replaced the faux boxwood wreath with an moss covered letter . . .
~ ~ ~ oh so, Common Ground’esque!
I added my Lenox butterfly reticulated basket to the vignette . . .
~ ~ I actually ditched the original pic of this and took this one this morning . .
~ ~ ~ ~ when the morning sun was streaming through the room.
On the other side of the vase is my “special bunny” . . .
~ ~ This was actually the first item I bought from what is now HomeGoods.
Years ago, whenever we were in Atlanta, I would visit this particular shopping area . .
~ ~ that had a Bombay Outlet and a Calico Corners.
One day I noticed that a TJ Maxx and More was added to the shopping center . .
~ ~ the “More” was the addition of a tremendous amount of “home goods” .
Then later it spun off to “HomeGoods”…
I only had time to buy one thing as just as I walked in . .
~ ~ my hubby called me and said he was ready to be picked up from his client’s office.
However, the very next time we were in Atlanta, I made sure I had hours to be the store!
I love re-purposing items . .
~ ~ all the while I was creating this arrangement in the “garden stool” . .
~ ~ ~ ~ my hubby was looking at me as if I had two heads.
And when all was said and done . . he gave me the thumbs up!
So what have you re-purposed lately?
Have a most wonderful day!!
