I'm doing a clean out of my kitchen, which means I tend to take lots of breaks. My mom gave me this cute little votive a while ago and I wanted to light it. (Because that's more fun than cleaning the microwave.) I couldn't find anything to put it in, so I dug up a crystal candy dish and some dry pinto beans from the pantry. I kind of like it.

Now I'm trying to decide if it's creatively functional or just plain tacky.

I kind of like it. Especially since you can see the darling picture of Rory behind it...I think it is functional...you might try to fill the bowl with something a bit classier than pinto beans...go for expresso beans...ooh la la...

Oh geez, you'd think I could have figured out coffee beans, huh? Don't have them available in my pantry, but I love the idea. Might have to add that to the grocery list.
