More great ways to repurpose a vintage item.

The idea is to find a new and unusual way to reuse vintage without changing the item itself.

This 6" art nouveau floral frog from KTiques on Etsy isa a perfect example of repurposing an item and still retaining it's original condition. This is Miyata Ware, made in Japan circa 1920-1930's

There are five holes on the top of the frog that can be used to display or store paintbrushes, pens, pencils, whimsical birthday wands, lollipops and chopsticks.
Just use your imagination!

Who could pass up a adorable planter like this one from SoutherLadyVintage.
The perfect accent piece to hold your makeup brushes on your vanity. Another example of how to reuse a beautiful vintage piece without altering it.
