I pick up these little silver sugar bowls anywhere I can find them. I don’t really care if it is a sugar bowl or a silver creamer. I LOVE them! There is good and bad news to this….. BAD: Other people love them to, so they are becoming harder to pick up at thrift stores or yard sales.
GOOD: If you do find them at yard sales most people are happy to see them go to a good home. I am often told “No one really appreciates these fancy little bowls anymore”
Well I DO!
Okay I am turning them into something else, but at least they are not going into hiding in a drawer or worse a landfill.
This Christmas season I have been just crazy about creating anything that I can add a small tree into!
I have jars, trucks and now sugar bowls.
I wanted to create that rustic yet sophisticated Junktales look!
I glued the tree into the bowl and it had to have a tree skirt. Some coffee filters and vintage newspaper made it come together.
I cut the paper and filters with pinking sheers to create that jagged edge.
I think they are just darn adorable.
I think others do too, because I have sold quite a few.
Now back to the hunt for more sugar bowls.
P.S. if you have some you don’t want, you know who to call!
