upcycled silver water pitcher...

This silver water pitcher that I've had laying around...


....has now been put to use on the kitchen counter as a utensil holder.


It may go back to being a flower vase at some point, but for now it's replacing a tall pottery vase that I had been using for the utensils that was very prone to tipping over.


I love it's fancy little handle...


...and feet. Yup. I think I'm going to enjoy looking at this little guy in my kitchen every day.

Darling idea, it's beautiful and so useful too! I looove using items we wouldn't normally use for everyday and displaying them like you have with this piece! It's perfectly unexpected! Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

This is a great idea! Mine is collecting tarnish in the garage. My late mother would be appalled!

A great use for such a beautiful thing. May I say, your new kitten is 'scrumptious'. What a beauty!

I have one similar to that except it is tarnished. Hmmmm, maybe I'll put it in the garden house when I am finished there!
Hope you have a great weekend!

This is beautiful. I am hosting a 50 dollar CSN Giveaway on my blog. I would love for you to stop by. Thanks Anu!

love that! I use a an old crock that is supposed to be a flower pot. I saw one some time ago where someone had used an old strawberry planting crock as a utensil holder. It was neat because the old crock had holes all the way down to the bottom where you could stick utensils. Have a fabulous week! ~ Lynn @thevintagenest
