Thrifty Thursday: old flour sifter

Good morning friends. Look what else was found in the [old] original kitchen cabinets during our kitchen reno: this old metal flour sifter! It is aged a lot, but does still function. The handle knob is wood. Since the house was built in the 1940's, it could be of that era. Wow, what to do with it. Would you just leave it as is, or decorate it a bit? All I did was clean it up. Oh, and the cost was free, lol. Prim blessings.
