Repurposed Light Covers

I recently repurposed two vintage light covers into a string holder and a vase...

 The larger one was the perfect size to hold my spool of cotton string, and there was already a hole for the string to come through and to hold a tiny pair of scissors!

The smaller one became a vase. I used a vintage wire gutter cap as a flower frog to hold my garden's first blooming daffodils. 

The twigs in this little vignette were just clipped from some tree branches we removed from our yard and tied with a bow. I just recently found the natural looking ribbon for only $1.00 a spool at Michael's Arts and Crafts!

Linking with Knick of Time Tuesday:

And a big Thank You to Angie for featuring my Happily Ever After in Vintage Frame from last week...what an honor to be included!
