Thinking outside the square is not one of my strong points, so I was really pleased when I came up an idea to use this gorgeous toast rack mum gave me when I was visiting. The toast rack belonged to my Granny (paternal), and as mum doesn't use it, she gave it to me. I'm so lucky to be the owner now as I've always loved it.
The rack is made from silver and was quite tarnished. Last night while watching The Australian Open (tennis), I gave it a good polish. Today I was able to use it for it's new intended purpose.
Isn't it the most perfect mail holder ever? I can put the bills there for hubby to discover when he comes home from work and any letters for my daughters can be held there until they come home. (It's so out of bounds for a mother to go into her daughter's bedrooms these days!)
So what do you think of my idea? Has anyone else been thinking outside the square recently? I'd love you to share your ideas with me.
