New Uses for Vintage Jewelry
Clip On Earrings
Do you have a drawer full of your (or your grandma's) old clip on earrings and just don't know what to do with it? Here are a few suggestions to help give those funky doodads new life.
* Use as earrings (hee hee...had to throw that one in for grins.)
Antique Salt and Pepper Shakers
Oh what to do with that lovely little collection of salt and pepper shakers your grandma gave you. Mismatched shapes, sizes, colors and some tops have gone missing! My favorite thing to do with vintage salt & pepper shakers (I actually have a collection going) is to take the tops off and store them safely, then use them as tiny vases!
I think a lovely wedding centerpiece for a table would be a small mirror laid on the table topped with a little collection of mismatched vintage salt and pepper shakers holding the wedding flowers. Throw in a couple of sparkly candles or tea lights for a night wedding and you have a beautiful, vintage, truly unique centerpiece.
Why just for weddings, though! I do this on my table for special occasions, or just when I need a little visual pick-me-up. Somehow I always feel more feminine when my table is cleared from clutter and topped with a lovely flower arrangement.
