Once Upon a Compact Tale


After 4 months of use,  I accidentally pushed a button and it opened to show this tiny little brush was under there.

 I HAD NO CLUE it was there. DUH!

That is where the DUH comes in... it is plainly WRITTEN and shows A PHOTO on the back of the box.
Good news is, I now have 3 of these little brushes. They clean phones, keyboards and remotes really well. Perfect for brushing between the number pads.


Guess what popped in MadSnapper SnapHappy Brain? 
DO A POST! 
First came a little brush selfie...


As I played I saw my watches and rings and thought WOW! 
I have an empty one, I could use it for a container.


It would make a great carry case for watch and rings, or pills, or change.... 

my brain was in gear.... 

Guess What? 

It was only good for  PHOTO FODDER because the silly thing will not close with the jewelry in it. DUH AGAIN

This post could get you a commercial for the cosmetic company. I'm tempted to purchase a compact just for the brush!!

Best,
Bonnie

Love the idea of using the brush on my keyboard. Too bad the cover won't close on the container!

Kathy said...

I'm so glad you did all this experimentation for me. Now I don't have to do it! But I like the idea of the little brush to clean keyboards, etc.

Blackberry Lane said...

So funny about the "hidden" brushes! I love the shot of the jewelry in it even if it won't close!

DeniseinVA said...

you're too funny! but that's a neat compact, too.

DawnTreader said...

Well you got a few photos out of it anyway! :)

Ginny said...

You have always been really good at finding other uses for things!!! My fav today is the next to last picture.

SweetMarie said...

pretty photos, love the one with the flowers. that brush is perfect for cleaning! and the compact is perfect for small items. :) love the way you think!

Ann said...

what a happy surprise. Not only did you get a handy dandy brush but blog material and lots of entertainment.
Did that one brush come with all the colors like that or did you play with the picture and add the color?

Ginny said...

WAIT! I now like the last picture even better...

Stacey Dawn said...

Gorgeous black and white photo there... and cool tips!

Miss Debbie said...

Well...it was a good thought anyway...about the jewelry. And it made a neat photo!!

Susannah said...

I love compacts! Maybe I should get one of these next time?????

SquirrelQueen said...

I always love how the MadSnapper turns things like this into posts. That is a neat little compact and it looks so pretty with your jewelry inside.

I never use the brushes that come with compacts and such but save them and use them for all the things you have mentioned.

Chatty Crone said...

I have to tell you I have a couple of those little brushes - I was going to throw them out - but now what good ideas you have given me!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Drat, I never use compacts, and wondered it they ALL come with those colorful and creatively used little brushes.

Eva Ason said...

What a cool little thing. How i wish i had one. You always find things to snap. Love it

Linda@arichtapestry said...

I have some of my mother's old compact cases that I just like to look at for the picture on the front, but I've never seen one with a soft little brush inside - so useful for all those needs you mention! Love the last photo on the round red mat. You have a good eye for the unusual image, Sandra.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

That's too funny that you didn't know. So do you like that powder?
Love your idea, the jewelry looks nice in there and it would make a great pill case.

Dee said...

LOL I love your blog and humor...♥

Maggie M said...

I was just wondering the other day what I could use to clean between the keys on the keyboard. And hear is my sweet friend with a great idea...thank you! I don't have a brush exactly like yours but I do have one that will work. Hugs

Anita Johnson said...
