Making old new again

My grandma handed so many special pieces down to me when we bought our house.  I love using them as display pieces but I also love using them as functional pieces.  Recently I realized just how many types of tea bags I had to offer guests but looking at the half empty boxes just wasn't cutting it.  So, I took to the cupboards in search of a fun and festive container for the teas.  When I came upon my grandma's trifle dish I couldn't resist. 

This old piece isn't one that I use all that often so repurposing it allowed for optimal tea selecting with a little flair!  Don't be afraid to use items in your home in ways that they aren't originally intended for...the function and conversation that it creates make your home just that...yours!
