Simple things



These carafes are mighty handy and among some of my favorite products these days.  The two larger ones are shatterproof plastic.  They are handy especially out on the patio, and the flip lids keep fingers out of the food.   Germs are not allowed!

The short carafe is glass and currently has candy in it.  Sometimes it contains a bouquet of flowers.  Wine?  Oh yes, that is the normal carafe purpose, but no, they have never contained wine!

Multi-use items are very important to have when living in a motorhome.

Do you have a favorite product that you re-purpose?  Please share!  I love getting new ideas.

I saw this idea somewhere recently and a light went on! It's a brilliant idea... far superior than bowls where people shove there hands in and touch everything. Because who knows where those hands have been, right? :)

Plus they're pretty and take up less space. Bonus!

Big hugs xoxo

Love it. I use an old folgers plastic coffee "can" for my fabric scraps (works for paper scrapping too, as well as a scrap bowl when cutting veggies).

that's what they do in the club, the goldfish and peanuts in carafes for sanitary reasons... but no, i don't have any more ideas. i was going to say i use my coffeemaker to make coffee but then i decided i wouldn't. (say it)

smiles, bee

I do understand this. We have a 34' boat that we spend 10+ days on at a time. You learn to go light or your living space is cluttered. Way cool. Seems we are both doing the same things.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hug from very windy and cold California. Scritches to the babies. :)

I like what you did with the carafes, Sandy.

I am not good at 'craft-y' or multi-purpose things. I wish I was.

Happy Wednesday to you tomorrow!
