TAKE A SHOT!

How many time have you gone to the thrift stores and yard sales and your eye catches those adorable little shot glasses? But you don't buy them because you think, "There's nothing I can do with them". Well, I have a few uses for you right here:

Shown are a few paint brushes, pencil, tweezers, embroidery scissors for crafting. You can also use them for storing tiny objects such as buttons and beads.

This is my favorite - I root cuttings in them! They are also perfect as a tiny vase for those tiny flowers in the garden, or that dandelion your child brings in the house for you!
Don't hesitate - buy them! And be creative!

Those would look lovely across my kitchen window sill which is too narrow to hold much of anything. I can just see them with flowers from the garden all lined up. Thanks for the great idea.

they're the perfect scoop size for scooping hard food out of the bag to fill up my cats bowls too :-) Love this post

Oh, Yay! We got a set of those 'free' on a cruise and I have them in the cabinet, too good to toss, embarrassed to sell them at a garage sale and no idea of what to do with them! Thanks for the idea!

We also use shot glasses as vases! They are just right for wildflowers.
