When my grandmother passed away, she was the antiques dealer, I took a lot of her pieces she had stored in barns and the chicken coop that were broken and would have been burned and over the years I have found a use for them in one way or another. Like drawers. Have you ever noticed how beautiful an antique drawer is? Just the other day I remembered I had one that had flowers carved in the front and was worn with a light green paint. I brought it inot the kitchen and now it holds my dinner plates. Drawers have a multitude of purposes, I never thought of making a lamp but I may just do that.
Those are repurposed from an old crib, can you imagine. Go to CUSTOM MADE to see more about them.
ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN to see more ideas.
So the next time you are thrifting, antiquing or just going through your old stuff, have a second look their may be a repurposed treasure there.

We are all cozily sitting around the fire now, even sweet Daisy who usually cannot abide the heat.
Hope you are all keeping warm wherever you are. We are going out for Valentine's Day tomorrow night, which is going to be the coldest night so far, I want to go but I don't want to leave the house. Maybe a little wine will keep me warm.....or maybe a lot!

Those CUPID HEARTS are lovely and wouldn't they make cute Valentine Cards. The kids would love to make these. All on PRACTICALLY FUNCTIONAL BLOG.
Last how about this absolutely beautiful Valentine. Just buy a shadow box, make the heart out of some typed romance pages and you can personalize it for your Valentine.
I am now off into the cold Ontario winter to seek out some adorable new clothes for my little sweetie's birthday gift at H & M, they have the coolest kids clothes anywhere.
