Those of you who have been following Unconsumption for a while — either here on Tumblr, or on Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, and/or Twitter — probably know that I (Molly) have a thing for vintage rulers, yardsticks, and measuring tapes. (Yes, an Unconsumption Pinterest board devoted to vintage measuring tools does exist!) 
So, when I came across an Etsy blog post on Vanessa Boer, I found myself drawn to several of Vanessa’s repurposed-ruler creations, particularly the pieces pictured here that incorporate vintage pencils. 
Nice!

Repurpose old graters as holders for pens, pencils, kitchen utensils, etc. (Spotted on Pinterest.)

“A piece-of-cake Valentine project: bend regular paper clips into little heart shapes.” Source.

This is a personal favorite Unconsumption-y thing from our archive. (Rob posted it during the Unconsumption Tumblr’s “early days” in February 2009!) It’s something cute and clever to do today, or on any day. ♥
