N is a wonderful resource of internet juju. Recently he came across a fun blog that talks about all the non original, creative uses of inexpensive items found at IKEA. http://www.ikeahackers.net/
This site got me thinking about all the re-purposed items I have used creatively around my own house. For example, as I sit and type this blog, the things found just at my desk alone include the following:
- antique silver British toast caddy, now letter and card holder
- antique flower frog, now pen holder
- drinking glass, now water color pencil display
- antique silver butter knife, now letter opener
What wonderful little items are floating around your world just waiting to debut as something new?
