The smallest of the bunch, but the one we keep finding new uses for. Run a line of them holding votive candles across your mantle, set the table with personal-sized sauce bowls, keep sea salt close at hand (don’t mess with salt spoons—salt is antiseptic; pinch away!). An elegant solution for a drippy tea bag, for storing bobby pins by the bedside, for rings by the sink, and more, and more, and more.
Sea salt on the table (try this one), individual bowls of soy sauce, a pinch of Masala spices at close reach from the stovetop. In my kitchen you'll find Bitty Bowls on every cooking surface and on my dining room table, gently cradling spices, herbs, and sauces of all kinds. I've been using a lot of turmeric from Diaspora Co lately, refilling this little bowl once a week or so, so the spices don't get stale.
"I need my altar to not only serve as a space for practical magic, but for beauty as well. Bitty Bowls are placed all over, holding tiny talismans like cone incense, dried flowers, or crystals and healing stones. Rose quartz brings me back to an open-hearted space after a long day, and plucking it out of a Bitty Bowl is a ritual within itself." - Marissa
Every night at dinner time our four-year-old makes us turn off all the lights and deck the house out in candles. Honestly, the first several times she demanded this level of ambience I got rather annoyed and stated my case against eating in darkness. But I let her win this one. We keep votive candles in Bitty Bowls all over the house. Eating by candlelight is the easiest way to make take out feel like a very special event.
I'm sure there's a reason why your orthodontist gives you a case for your retainer that closes, but as a 15 year old, mine always got so nasty and gunky, to the point where it grossed me out to open it and I never really thought to clean it. Too much information? Probably. In any case, the Bitty Bowl is a great size for keeping on your bedside table. Close your book, pop out that retainer, and hit the lights.
