I have always liked to use things for other than its “intended purpose”.
At one of the estate sales recently, I was able to get this pretty soup tureen for $5.00.
I do not believe it is old . . . and cannot make out the “made in impression” on the bottom.
Looks like “France” but cannot be certain.
When I did some re-arranging of items in the kitchen . . .
~ ~ ~ ~ I had an epiphany!…..Love epiphanies!
An epiphany on “how to create a phone charging station”.
I decided to place the soup tureen in this area of the kitchen . . .
~ ~ where I had a grouping of pretty covered glass containers.
I had replaced a crystal fruit bowl with a beautiful scalloped ironstone bowl . . .
~ ~ which was a recent find in West Virginia.
I then decided to replace the covered glass containers with books and ironstone.
However, still keeping an item “that makes me smile” . . .
~ ~ a photo of my granddaughter years ago helping me bake.
I removed the ladle from the soup tureen . . .
The end of my kitchen counter always looked like this . . .
~ ~ a mess of phone charging cords.
It was then I had my “epiphany” . . .
~ ~ I could put my phone and charging cords inside the soup tureen.
And the opening for the ladle allows the cord to be plugged into the outlet.
Ta da . . . no more cord mess on the counter!
So now my newly created kitchen vignette will stay phone charger cord clutter free. . . .
~ ~ ~ with my soup tureen charging station!!!
So, do you use items for “unintended purposes” ? ?
Intended or unintended . . . hope your day is a happy one!!!!
