Since I’ve re-embraced my love of all things playscale (1:6 miniatures), I’ve started seeing things differently and re-imagining various items. So, this week’s photo challenge, “repurpose”, was right up my ally.
Similar to the shelves in my own home, Eve’s shelves are adorned with decorative elephants:
Originally, the larger of the two was a necklace pendant, and the smaller of the two was part of a pair of earrings. The elephants I myself have are part of the Elephant Parade replica series, where 20% of the net profits are donated to elephant welfare and conservation projects.
In Eve’s world, these are decorative vases containing greenery:
They are, in actuality, small knobs with the screws and hinges removed. The plants are fish-tank escapees, longing for a less soggy existence.
An egg holder becomes a mixing bowl, a bottle-cap with a little glue becomes a pie, and a picture frame becomes a glass coffee table:
It’s all about perspective. While some of these items may not start off in the most glamorous fashion, I appreciate their contribution to fleshing out Eve’s world.
