Tool Frog

Here's a new use for your glass flower frogs -
I've been using mine for my pencils, pens and paintbrushes - and yesterday figured out the taller ones are perfect for holding small tools! If you don't have any glass frogs, you can usually find them at thrift stores, antique stores, junk shops for a few dollars...I have a quite a few of them, but nothing compared to my sisters collection of about a gazillion! She likes things with circles and words with o's...hmmm...one time we had to go to Tarkio, MO just so she could say it.

I'm with your sister...I have a whole bunch of these just sitting in my cupboard...hoping to use them for flowers. I like your idea better!

That's a fun idea to keep your tools handy.

What a handy idea. I'm helping with the big spring clean at my daughter's and know where I might be able to get some, yeeha. and then there is the friend with the frog collection...

Yes! My sister uses one for her colored pencils... no more rifling through a box, except she has to be careful with the really sharp ones as they stand out like porcupine quills :o) They look beautiful with those pencils in all the different colors. Think of all the things this would work well with!
Thanks for sharing,
