Glass Bottle Charm & Bead Blogger Updates

I thought it would be fun to share this glass bottle charm from Rings & Things today so we can all ponder the interesting ways of using something like this.

The online catalog reads: Bottle, Glass, Octagon (Clear). Approx. 25x10x10mm octagon-shaped glass perfume bottle charms, 1.4-1.6mm hole. Screw-on cap style varies. Can hold perfumes, oils, or other liquids. Reservoir is the perfect size to display a single grain of rice.

Wow, isn't that CRAZY!? (Yes, I'm still watching the Patty Duke Show and can't help but pick up on the teen lingo of the 1960's). I mean crazy in a wow, what a mind blower, kind of way!

In the Rings & Things hard copy catalog, there is a picture of a grain of rice with a word WRITTEN on it sitting inside the reservoir of this little bottle. Maybe I need to write the word, "Crazy!" on mine! :)

I'd love to hear all your thoughts on this if you have a minute!!
