They make great jewellery holders, especially for small, dainty pieces, and they also keep loose change in one place.
Here, a set of three hold a few office supplies and add some charm to a work space.
They also are a tidy little saucer for used tea bags.

I'm hoping to be able to have my photos from our trip sorted by the end of the week. In the meantime, have a lovely rest of the week.
