Upcycled and Repurposed Treasures

I absolutely believe in upcycling and repurposing.  I not only enjoy finding previously loved treasures and getting them at a great price, but also knowing that I am not buying something new.  One of my favorite finds from Summer (my busiest treasure hunting time) is a pair of glass containers that I actually found at two separate sales.

Do you recognize them?  They are globes from mid-century light fixtures.  They make perfect candle holders that go with a variety of decor styles, depending on what they are paired with.  One vignette here uses tealights and a rustic decor style.  The other a lighter, softer cottage style and uses pink votives.

Whatever your style, you can't go wrong at 25 cents for one and 10 cents for the other!  One candle costs more than both of these together!


  1. Wow, that is a great find!! I love the warm-looking ones. :)
