More Pots

I'm making those little eucalyptus pots again---I'm heating up the mixture of tree sap, charcoal and beeswax to seal the ends of the toothpicks on the outside and inside.

Lids and strings and beads attached.

These are small--can only carry very small things, like seeds, tiny shells and such.

Why do I make these?  I don't know--There is something very satisfying to me, to finish a little handful of pots.  My older pots are holding mostly flower seeds and beads--I lose track of what's inside and have to open them all up before I find what I'm looking for--kind of a drawback, but a fun one--I don't want to write any labels on them.
