~ the ultimate repurposes ~

I LOVE to repurpose!

And most of my projects (main link HERE) are all about that.

But you’ve seen all my stuff.


I wouldn’t want to bore you.

Or anything.

(all of the above projects can be found HERE)

So today I’m going to take you for a tour of an FJI follower that has this theme down!

Meet Jane over from Mamie Jane’s. I’ve been following her projects for a good long while now and her stuff (and photography) never cease to amaze me.  Here are a few of her repurposes…

yardstick tray


yardstick stars

( oh my how I love thee/s )

record rack platter holder

( stinkin’ brilliant! )

yardstick sewing trim storage

( holey moley that looks cool )

strainer jewelry holder AND jewelry

( metal… this one hurts, want it ALL )

creamer pin cushion

( geez that’s cute! )

old window display shelf

( love the shaving brush collection! who’da thunk it )

All you have to do is land on her home page and keep hitting ‘older posts’ because I assure you, you won’t want to miss a single one!

LOVE your work Jane!

  1. Hi Donna,
    Thank you so much for featuring me tonight on your SNS post!! You can’t imagine my surprise when I was reading your post and then saw my pic and projects….it definitely put a bright spot in my evening!
    I’m hoping to get something linked for this week’s party….pressure is on now 🙂
    Thank you again, it is very much appreciated!!

  2. Donna I have followed Jane’s blog for a while now. I can’t comment because of the way her blog is set up. I would love to because she
    is so creative and I love all that she makes.
    I have so many re-purposed things. I use my daddy’s old plow tines for hooks and his old
    hoe heads for shelves on my back porch. I have an old tin dollhouse that houses my gardening tools and some small pots. Ultimate would be the small children’s table made out of the side of my mom’s old enamel stove. It was made about 14yr. ago for my twin grand daughters to eat their lunch on at my house. Now I use it on my back porch. I love all of your creations.

  3. No doubt about it~ you are definitely the queen of repurposing! 🙂 thanks for having the party! btw, I keep thinking about your one manicured thumb for photo shoots and I think it’s brilliant! My nails have stain around the edges and my husband says they look like a mechanics!

  4. OMG, Donna, thanks for pointing me to Jane’s blog. I’m like a kid in a candy store looking at her marvelous creativity. One thing, tho, are you sure you two weren’t separated at birth? You two have the same genius vibe for finding and repurposing gorgeous objects. And, thanks for hosting your fun party yet again. Regards.

  5. I just adore Jane! She is so creative and thinks outside the box with every bit of treasure that she finds at the thrift store. Much like yourself! You are both an inspiration to all of us! t. xoxoxo

  6. What a sweet thing to feature Jane! I love her creativity and how she makes you think outside the box {like someone else I know wink wink} Jane never ceases to amaze me every time I read her blog. Makes you think there is no such thing as junk out there they way she re-purposes it and makes it into such fun and usually functional stuff.
