I was given this amazing rug, it was torn and more than a little dirty, by my amazing aunt.  I think it was made in the 1950s or 60s??  It now sits nicely (and clean and for the most part repaired) in our family room well used by the children.  I am glad I did not turn it down because of the tears.  Sometimes taking the time to repair things pays off.  If not repair, than maybe repurpose.  I have actually (egads!) cut apart a falling apart quilt and put it into a new quilt so parts of the quilt can last for a few more generations to admire.  What have you repurposed lately?
