In With The Old!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and are gearing up to start the new year.  I can't believe it's almost 2013.  2013 should be an exciting year for us, as baby #3 is set to arrive this spring.  More on that to come!

I love using "something old" in every room.  I have thought for a while that my kitchen was missing something old.  My breakfast room has a vintage tole chandelier and settee, but it is a little trickier to incorporate something vintage into the kitchen itself. 

If you are like me, you probably have a few silver ice buckets sitting around.  They are so versatile, as you can use them on your bar when entertaining or to hold a beautiful flower arrangement.

As I was cooking over the holidays, I started thinking about the sad state of my kitchen utensil holder.  Boring and black.  I think it was a free gift with purchase when I bought my pots and pans.  Sad!

So I went up to my "butler's pantry" in my attic and grabbed this ice bucket.

I quickly moved all of my utensils over to it, and I love the result!   The ice bucket adds "something old" to my kitchen as well as an unexpected touch of glamour. 

Do you use any pieces in an unexpected way?
