Anatomy of a Dinner Party: a day in the life of a hospitalityaholic

Seeing Items Through New Eyes

Written by Patti on March 8th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend, I know we did.  And I will be back in a few with lots of pictures and foodie stories for you.

But in the meantime, I’d like to discuss how to use items in your house for a purpose other than originally intended. For instance, I bought this killer planter this fall at the Grant Park Yard Sale with Crystal for $5.00 and I just love, love, love it.  But how can I use it for something other than plants?  You know, I bet it would make a wonderful and exotic ice bucket.  And it did. Take a look:

Isn't This Cool? The Bubbly Thinks So!

I just love how gothic and exotic it looks. For FIVE DOLLARS y’all!

The weather is finally getting nice – get out to those neighborhood yard sales and take a gander!

See you in a bit.

xoxo, Patti
