What to do...

with these....

Any creative ideas of what to do with these little bamboo spoons? 

I used to string beads on the handles to match my beaded tea ball infusers, and used them as tea ball caddies/rests,

but I can't get small enough tea balls now.  I look forward to hearing your ideas!


  1. i will have to think on this one!!! have a great weekend!

  2. Don't you just hate it when you are used to buying something and the vendor goes and changes the design, or the vendor gets replaced, or the store goes out of business? I have a huge Asian market here. I'll look to see if they even have any infusers in that design. If so, I'll get the size from you.

    Of course, you could always sell them as ice cream scoops (BIG GRIN).

  3. Well, I have no good ideas, I'm afraid, but I think your photos are pretty creative, for a start! I love the beads. It's too bad you can't get smaller tea balls. Have you tried ordering them from specialty tea shops? We have a shop in downtown St. Pete called Hooker Tea Company. They seem to have everything under the sun for loose tea.

  4. brilliant how you used them before

    I'm surprised you don't want to paint on them ... if I could "really" paint I would give it a whirl ;)

  5. I would paint tiny little birds in the cups-your birds are so pretty and I think they would look nice against the bamboo.

  6. I like them as is. Yes, I like the photos! Thanks for your comment.

  7. I would probably just stand them up in a pretty glass...but I can't wait to see what you do! ♥
