Repurposed Christmas Card Holder

Do you see it? 

Repurposed thrift store find.

I did the minute I saw it at the thrift store... 

I just can't help myself. 

I went into the thrift store today to look around for holiday decor for myself. 

Not to repurpose or to sell... but for me. 

And I walked out with this....

Repurposed fish fryer from the thrift store

It is a fish basket for a barbecue. 

Saw one just like it at Williams and Sonoma.


I couldn't help myself... 

I repurposed it the minute I got home because I couldn't see this as anything but this...

Did I mention it's magnetic too? 

Those red holiday magnets stick to the metal and are perfect to dress it up for Christmas!
