Last week, I found this vintage aluminum and glass serving piece. It's a Lazy Susan from the 1950s that will be making an appearance in my Etsy shop soon. She spins and can hold a variety of nuts or dips in her divided glass bowl, with plenty of room around the outside for chips or crudités.
But before she gets discovered on Etsy, I had fun playing around with others ways Lazy Susan could be useful. Shown below, an old tea kettle-turned-planter is happy to employ her as a pedestal.
Miss Susan would also come in handy in a home studio or craft area. Her divided dish, and the addition of a few glass ramekins, can hold buttons, beads, or other small supplies within easy reach while working on a crafty project.
Or how about transforming her into a beach-inspired centerpiece? Arrange some sea shells around a vintage sand pail and you can almost hear the ocean.
Well then . . . I guess this Susan isn't so lazy after all.
