Re-purposed Old-Fashioned "Cheese" Cover



Hello Dear Blog Peeps...

Don't you just love re-purposing something?


How about things that look Victorian and are crystal?

Those are the kinds of items that make my heart go pitter patter just a little bit faster.



Well, wouldn't you know it, at a thrift store, I spotted a very beautiful, old-fashioned
cheese cover----the kind they'd use in Victorian times.

Couldn't you just close your eyes and see it on an exquisitely festooned dining room
table, complete with crystal glasses, fine china, gleaming silverware and a lace tablecloth?



So I bought it, placed it on top of a pretty crystal dish and use it as a re-purposed butter dish and cover.


Since the width of the cover is not as wide as a stick of butter, I cut one in half and put the two pieces on top of each other. There is plenty of room.


Soooooo pretty. So next time you see something beautiful that you love but have no idea what to do with, re-purpose it!

DO YOU LIKE TO THINK OF HOW TO USE OBJECTS DIFFERENTLY FROM WHAT THEY WERE INTENDED?

You know what caught my attention in your post was thinking back to the olden days and how it might look on the table that was all decorated. It would be nice to visit those times for a day - right?

I've often thought, "I really need something to cover this cheese."

Just kidding! I am not that fancy. My cheese goes in a ziploc bag in the fridge. It is very envious of your cheese.

Such a pretty find. I too like the Victorian decor but don't actually decorate in that style. If I had a large, old house, I probably would though. Nice you got to find a good purpose for the cheese bowl.
