A piece of junk made into something pretty

Look at this little thing I found at a junk sale - I think it is some sort of vintage condiment caddy - it was an old and tarnished ( I love the tarnished pieces, but believe me this wasn't worth using like that). I painted it a sort of a shade of robins egg blue added a vintage rhinstone button to the indentation in the middle, a tiny rhinestone to the top underneath the handle...


Added some small glass vials I found on Etsy....


Added some buds from my garden, and voila! I love how it turned out.

Hi melissa, It is so much fun to be creative and to be able to think outside the box to come up with something nice. This looks great! Sometimes with a little bit of paint and some extras can really make a difference..

It was so nice of you to stop over too!! Thanks

Enjoy your day-
