I'm a little Teacup... Saucer

We all feel bad when we break a teacup, but you don't have to throw out the matching saucer. They can have a second chance at life in a variety of ways around your house. As I mentioned below, I snagged a bunch at an antique mall for $0.25 each to use a soap dishes but I recently found a variety of ways to use them around the house to add a cheap, easy, and fun touch of elegance.

They look adorable as saucers for small plants around the house:



Or set one on your bedside table to collect your rings, keys or coins at the end of a long day!


I am sure you all have some ingenious ideas on other ways to use them so please share because I still have a bunch I need to find homes for!

Cute ideas. Maybe keep some near the stove to use as a spoon rest. Or ... I've always wanted to do something like this and it may be better on a smaller scale with saucers:

I do use mine a planter saucers and little soap dishes as well. Also, with a nice little hanger, a cute grouping could make a nice little art installation on the wall?? What about a pretty candleholder for some nice taper candles??
