Ring Holder Dish 

We all have a little clutter around us. Teacup saucers, mugs, plastics figurines, and paint from the backyard DIY you did four years ago. For many of us, living means accumulating, and sometimes there’s just a lot of stuff that’s useful, but not exactly useful to you.

Well, what if you could make these things useful again? Welcome to the world of repurposing —taking items and giving new life as gifts, home décor, and accessories that you and your friends will love.

Utilizing things and repurposing them to be useful allows us to not contribute to unnecessary consumerism. My life changed when I broke into a mindset that secondhand items have value. I believe that things do not lose value with age, regardless of the amount of uses or owners it has had previously.

It’s a silly mentality, really, to have a subconscious shrug to the detailed winter coat or timeless dishware that you can pick up for a few bucks at your local consignment shop. Items should be cherished and respected, for things with age and quality have a fun story to tell.

In terms of home décor, I like to utilize items that I find secondhand. I always see these beautiful teacups and saucers in the dishware section of my favorite thrift shops. I already have a stack of useful dishes in my kitchen, so I thought of an alternative way I could repurpose them into a gift for a friend.
