etsy of the day: ceramic trinket buns

i am so in love with these little cupcake trinket boxes by EmmaLitten, i hardly know where to begin. i am forever lacking in a place to put my "daily wear" jewelry - it somehow ends up on the window ledge in my kitchen, thrown haphazardly on my nightstand, or on the itsy bitsy shelf above my bathroom sink. all really safe places to keep some of the more valuable things i own, don't you think?

but the reality is i'm just too plain lazy to seek out a better locale when the time comes. i'm thinking i can buy one for each of those locations i mentioned, and then i'll be so excited to use the ceramic trinket bun (don't you just love the name?) that i might actually put my valuables into something safe.

i also love (love) the idea of using these in a home office or craft area, as homes for paper clips, thumbtacks, and so on. the moral of the story? pick up a handful (they come in two sizes) and you'll find uses for them absolutely everywhere. and don't forget to check out the rest of emma's positively gorgeous wares...i want one of just about everything this amazing potter makes.
