CHARMINGLY REPURPOSED GIFT GIVING

Have you acquired an abundance of mismatched vintage tableware, possibly too much for your cupboards to hold?  Repurpose and incorporate some pieces into sweet little hostess gifts.  Homemade jam, a teaspoon, doily and dessert plate, tied up with fabric ribbon, makes for a darling presentation.

Have a pair of teacups, saucers and spoons?  All that's needed to complete this ensemble is some specialty tea bags and a pair of dessert napkins.

Do be mindful of and thoughtful with your intentions, though.  Your recipient may really love the idea and want to pay your gifted wares forward to another friend.  She may want to use the dish under one of her little potted plants.  A teacup may become the perfect (and adorable) catchall for buttons or stamps.  That's okay.  It's all about letting go and letting a new purpose be had for these items.  Who knows, as luck may have it you may one day be presented with a little treasure that you sent off years ago!
