I love to pick up vintage glass candy dishes at thrift stores.
One, they remind me of my grandmother and two, I often use them to store supplies on my work table. I use them to hold buttons, brads, punched shapes, and various paper snippets.
When the edges are scooped out, it is easy to just slide out buttons, brads, and tiny pieces and it looks so much prettier than plastic!
I discovered that this little treasure is just the right size to hold a spool of twine.
The spool rolls effortlessly when you pull on the end.
It only cost .50!
