Our man-cat has adopted the trophies as his own and poses with them on a regular basis.

Well, whatever you do, don't put potpourri in them -- it makes them rust! I thought I had a good idea for my larger Highland trophies, but I guess not ...

I have peeled off the labels of some trophies I felt less attached to and donated them to small competitions or fun events (for example, I used to teach at a highschool and one year we had a "teacher Idol" competition for which I donated two trophies -- I ended up winning one back :D ). These events usually have no budget to speak of and this way they can give out a nice trophy while saving money for more pressing expenses. It hurts a bit when you give them away, but you won't even know it later.

So maybe we'll put the potpourri in the plastic ones that leaked.... they wont rust.

Actually, it was more a matter of, I had flowers, and couldn't find a vase, so I thought I'd put them in one of the cups, and then I kinda ran with the idea. :) A couple of them ARE vases after all... well, the green one the feis people told me was a candle holder... but I think it was really meant to hold an adult beverage. I guess flowers will go nicely as well.

You can line the ones that leak - i.e. put the flowers in a little cup filled with water and put the cup in the leaky trophy.

Tried deperately to find someone to donate them to, but no luck. Took lots of pictures of girls surrounded by trophies and then we said goodbye.
