new use for old things

Have you ever read Real Simple's "New Uses for Old Things" articles? I love their suggestions for re purposing household items.

Here is Jordan's awesome mustache mug:
And my J mug:
We thought they would look cute as pen holders on the desk, but we don't want to ruin the mugs with ink stains all over the bottom. That's where the cupcake liner comes in!

It was Real Simple. ;)
