Make it new...

We are all trying to find new uses for old things and ways to keep our waste to a minimum. I love the spice isle at Target for that reason. Sounds funny doesn't it. The Archer's Farm brand has such pretty spice containers and when I pick up that pretty bottle I can hardly wait to use up it contents. I haven't figured out what I am going to do with them yet, maybe bud vases.

 In the meantime I think I will put these great ideas to use.

Ever lose one of your earrings? Now you can use the one you still have on your pin board. They sure make a lovely pushpin.

How do you carry your cupcakes? Well the next time I need to I am going to reuse a shirt box. Simply cut x's in the top and insert the cupcakes. A shirt box will hold 8 cupcakes.

This is one of my favorites. Mark your guests seat at your next dinner party with a miniature clothes pin and a simple notecard.

Even though the holidays are over, we all have birthdays and other events to celebrate throughout the year. The next time you go out to eat, pick up your coaster. Why? You can reuse it as a gift tag.

I absolutely love these ideas, esp using a single earring on a pin board and the idea for the t-shirt box. Clever and so pretty!

I've never noticed Archer Farm spices before. I will have to make a special trip to check out the bottles my next Target trip!

Hope you are able to get the ikea chairs! Do they ship?
