Monday's Junk !!

The Nice and Easy Antiques gal's are having a Junkin Monday , so I thought I would join in , except my junk is of things I recently found and am using in my home !!!
The top photo is of my table in my living room ( the table was a junk find also a long time ago ) I purchased a low clear glass candle holder and a clear glass vase from the thrift store.... glued them together and ...tada, it is holding a "birdie nest " !I also came across this large apothecary jar in a turquoise , blue tone , I knew it would go in my office , so there it is sitting by a stack of white pedestal dishes I have also acquired via garage sales! The walls in my office are a robins egg blue ( on one wall only) the other walls are a brown tone, the sweet little vintage kitty is a gift from a friend !.

Another repurposed little treasure is on a table in my living room, I had found this little dome with a bottom , not sure what they are intended for , may be butter, but I glued it to a candlestick and turned it into a pedestal dish with a dept. 56 kitty inside that a friend gave me many years ago , it is sitting in a bed of white vintage buttons.

I also snapped a shot of some frames I had found at the thrift shop and a silver tray that I am in the middle of repurposing !! So I better get back to my projects !! Have a wonderful day ! And check out the other Junkin Monday Posts !

What a great idea on the glass dome. It is so much fun to find different uses for things . thanks for sharing, may have to go find my dome now and use it for something as wonderful.
