I found these tiny hand ashtrays at the local thrift store. They're a throwback to a smoking culture from decades ago.
Times have certainly changed!
But I couldn't resist the price or their vintage style so I grabbed them up.
Now I use them for holding beads....
...that I sew to the middle of the fabric rosettes I use
in so many of my Etsy shop projects.
They make me smile, they were certainly inexpensive enough and they add a certain vintage style to my beading projects.
Not bad for a total expenditure of .50 cents!
