This teacup and saucer once held a scented candle. I picked up two of them at Urban Outfitters ages ago. Once the candle was done, I cleaned them up and they sat in the garage for a couple of years. They were just too pretty to donate or use at a garage sale.
So I cleaned them up and decided to make them more functional.
What's neat is the teacup is already glued to the saucer so I didn't have to break out the E-6000. I did, however, print out the word miscellany on clear label paper to add to the front of the teacup.
Then I filled it with random pieces including these great, vintage French flashcards. I add them in with my Etsy "thank you" bags and use them for tags.
It's also a great spot for odd buttons and some keys. Now I can easily grab what I need without having to dig through piles of stuff in my craft room. Now I just have to figure out what I'm putting on the other one.
