Hidden treasures. Återanvänd ditt gamla porslin som smyckeförvaring

Har du som jag udda porslin från 1800-talet och tidigt 1900-tal i dina gömmor? Föremål med stort affektionsvärde men liten praktisk användning. Om du inte har plats, eller lust, att samla föremålen i ett vitrinskåp, varför inte hitta en ny användning? Som här: ett läckert förvaringstips från alla vår pysseldrottning Martha Stewart: smyckeförvaring av udda koppar och fat. 
What do you do with all those delicate, one off, old china pieces you've inherited? I hate to dust, so in my own home I don't display things with no practical purpose. Reuse is another thing. So when I saw this solution from Martha Stewart, I jumped. Perfect! Now I know what to do with Granny's odd cups and saucers. A hidden secret. And clever storage for all those little things that tend to disappear.

  1. Vintage china is perfect for storing jewelry! + is so good looking that it hurts :) You could also use 'em as beautiful candle holders - fill half cup with water first & add one or few tea lights :) ox

  2. Thanks Urska, yes there must be lots of ways to reuse old china. Martha Stewarts idea was new to me, and I like it a lot. Especially since the 19C cups I have are very dear and very delicate, and I dare not have them out and around. But this way - maybe they'll be safe in a drawer? And I get to see them more often than I do now.
