Surprise! I know - twice in two days! :)
So we went to a really nice place for Sunday brunch over the holidays and there were these super duper teeny tiny wee little single-serving glass jam jars on the table. (I may have walked out of the restaurant with a pocket-full ... or two ... of these jars. Maybe. Maybe not. Just sayin'.)
Anyhow, here's what I did with one of those jars.
I know, you'd think it's more cute than useful. (Although - for the record - cute things are in and of themselves totally useful by their very nature, right? How can you not smile when you see something that's cute because it's little?)
It's true, the tufting on top is as high as I could make it without it looking dumb. And long pins don't work well. It's perfect for applique pins, though. And I've put some tiny buttons in it. I have been keeping my ring thread cutter in it because I'm always misplacing that little sucker - it fits perfectly inside the jar and the jar is way easier to find. However - ironically - I took that ring out of the jar the other day and ... now I can't find it. Again.
