When I worked at the candy store before, I use to take these spools when the ribbon was all done. I use these for my spinning to wind singles off of my spindle.
On another note, I never buy plants whose only purpose is to flower. My green thumb turns into a black thumb around them. I am not sure why. Any who, I bought this Crocus on a whim last week at the grocery store when it was 75% off. I figured even if it never bloomed for me, I love the look of it's grassy-leaves. LOOK, it's blooming . . . maybe my luck with flowering plants is changing.
3 blooms already and such a beautiful plant it is.
I am quite happy with my $1.99 + tax.
