After my grandmother passed away, my parents helped my grandpa go through his kitchen and get rid of pantry and baking ingredients he wouldn’t use. I bake more than my mom does, so most of the baking items came to me. In the box my parents sent home with me, I found a half-dozen glass bottles of food coloring and extracts. I loved how dainty the bottles were, so I saved them even after they were empty.
I now use the glass bottles as mini-vases to display tiny floral arrangements. They’re a beautiful way to remember my grandmother, a woman who enjoyed baking and crafting as much as I do.
