Uses for Your Treasures (part 2)


Old recipe boxes make great little storage containers; I use mine for sewing notions and ephemera.


Protecting my stove burners helps cut down on cleaning time and this large tole tray makes a great cover.


Vintage aprons are such a great collectible but I hate to bring them out only when you're cooking. I display some of mine tied around the bar stools in our kitchen and that way I get to enjoy them everyday.

Eveything so neatly displayed...I found some thimbles at my flea market this month. Adorable. I also like the new banner at the bottom of this website. I suggest to bring it up to the top. Cheers!
