I have been collecting old wooden cotton reels for a while and have finally come up with a use for them. If you cut a slot into them lengthwise you can use them as card or picture holders.
I will have some at my stall at the Fremantle Bazaar in early December.
Sometimes even perfectly ordinary everyday things can look interesting if you get up close.
What a pity caramels don't come in these cute little cardboard boxes any more. It would be much more environmentally friendly if they did.
