I hope you're having a fabulous week so far. Are you seeing Spring yet? The past two days have been bright and sunny, with gorgeous blue skies broken only by the occasional fluffy cloud... but (and it's a huge but honeys) it's freezing! I mean seriously bone chilling, skin tingling, can see your breath kinda freezing! Oh I so, so, so wish it would get warmer so that I can be hanging out laundry!!
For now though, our furbaby Jade and I are sharing a huge sherpa throw on the sofa, she snuggles down for a nap on her cushions and under the lovely soft blanket and I sit here typing away on my laptop. Winter has definitely overstayed her welcome this year, dear ones. The cold seeps into my bones making my joints ache. I need cheering up and what better way to do that than to make something pretty :)
I'm jumping ahead of myself :) Do you remember the Jane Asher range in Poundland honeys? I've bought quite a few items from this range over the past year or so (if you'd like to see them, you can see the posts here and here) but recently I spotted the cutest little glass worktop saver with a very vintage feel to it's design.
I knew it was a little small for our kitchen, and we already have a few there already but i so loved the design of it and it was only £1 after all, so into our basket it went.
downstairs hallway & tiny mudroom :)
So, since we didn't need another worktop saver in our kitchen this adorable little piece of glass with tiny button feet traveled upstairs in the direction of my dressing table...
When I fill my brush and tap the solid base of the brush on the saver (this allows the powder to fall into the brush which helps to apply it evenly) should any fall off, it goes onto the saver and not my dressing table. So easy to clean up with a little anti bac wet wipe and protects the surface of my dressing table from becoming scratched.
Do you remember the acrylic make up organizer I'd found in Home Bargains? As you can see in the above photo I'm still using it, it allows me to have the products I use regularly within reach without making my dressing table look too cluttered.
you can find it here.
The other side of my dressing table looks like this...
I'm loving this little worktop saver on my dressing table honeys, it feels like a little finishing touch that's been missing :) What about you? What do you keep on your dressing table? Have you found a way to re-purpose something intended for another use?
Till next time dear ones, have a fabulous day and stay warm, it's almost Spring :) Huggles always xxx
