Tomorrow Is...


And if you're lucky enough to live in Michigan, you could go see the international competition that happens every year! Me, well, I got to thinking: What can you do with all those leftovers pits that you spit? They're fairly solid, and kind of an interesting shape. Maybe you could use them as beads?

You could, if you've got a handy drill with a small bit. Or, you can head to your sewing machine for a completely different project. It turns out that one of the most popular ways to reuse them is by making a heating pad. Why? Because apparently these pits have a knack for getting hot, and staying that way.

Wanna give it a try? Check out this tutorial from Raisin Toast.

For those of you less inclined to put thread to needle, there are a couple really cute options via the crafty sellers on Etsy...

Or, in a similar vein but using a different vessel, I came across a beautiful linen bread basket on Remodelista designed by C. Quoi and sold by De De Ce in Australia. The bottom is filled with cherry pits, and it was made specifically for French chef Alain Ducas to keep bread warm. Gorgeous, no?


What other ways can you think of to reuse cherry pits?
