Oh I'm a bad blogger! I totally forgot my promise to send a little something to the person whose suggestion for what to do with the ashtray caught my imagination. Seriously, it was very hard because you are all so imaginative! In the end I had to go with Anne S's idea of a pincushion, combined with Jolie's idea of using the coils for embroidery thread cards. I loved some of the other ideas too, succulent garden (I'd probably kill it), olive holder (don't eat enough olives but it would look totally cool!), but had to plump for something I'd actually do. :) So thanks ladies, I'll be in touch!
