~repurposed treasure~

Sometimes when I'm out treasure hunting I might find a treasure and know it will be good for something, just not sure yet what that might be....

Other times I see something and know immediately how I want to use it : this was one of those "other" times. I found this unusual tarnished silver vessel sitting on a shelf and well, I love unusual containers, they are great for flowers and staging vignettes and filling with all kinds of lovelies.

I especially like vintage silver with a simple monogram, this one has a large "K" on the front.

Nice shapely handles

I filled it with a big bunch of baby's breath and popped it on my mantel. It looks more springy than fall to be honest, but hey, the sun was shining up north so why not!!

How do you like to use unusual vessels?

love the silver container ~ especially since my name begins with "K". :)) The babys breath is stunning in the silver.

Your silver piece is wonderful! I like to put my dried hydrangeas in neat containers & my craft supplies in cool glass jardinieres. Thanks for stopping by my blog & your sweet comments. I'd love to see your trees! I also have some white ones, but tinted most of the trees I did this year.

I am all over tarnished silver. I've been using silverware that's all tarnished for some photoshoots. I also have a vase similar but not so beautifully ornate that I want to bring out now. Thanks for the inspiration as usual!
