When you think of your home, does the word "character" come to mind? If not, maybe it is time to get some antiques in your life. Unlike new, store bought items, the only label present on an antique is to inform you of what it was, but never clarifies all of the things that it could be. For instance, if you buy a bowl from Wal-Mart, odds are you are going to put your cereal in it, but with an antique bowl, the list of uses is much more broad. Make it into a planter, display it in on a shelf, use it to hold you rings or necklaces, or, you know, just put cereal in it. The point is, antiques provide an endless realm of creative possibilities for you to explore.
