Bookends! Who woulda thunk it?

CreativeMama said...

we use it mostly for pen stands and my DD uses it to fill water and wash her paintbrushes when she dons the artist Hat! and also to store her crafty items like glue, color pencils etc.,

Cool! I wish I had neat mugs like those to use for odds and ends!

Love your mugs! We fill ours with paint brushes, pencis, crayons, etc. as well. I like the idea of using it as a toothbrush holder! Oh...and the elephant mug! TOO CUTE.

So cute! I wish I had 10 or 15 old mugs laying around that we could embellish and paint. Love the book ends! So cute!!
