All Bottled Up...


Jars, glasses, bottles are all on my list of items to cull from the flea market. I love things with lids the most, because they can always be used to hold modern day supplies. These bottles once held prescription medications.  I found the whole collection for $1 dollar a piece. 

After a thorough cleaning I filled them with gift tags and party place cards from my talented friend Deborah Norton at Vintage Paper Parade. They are the most perfect little containers!

  2. I too have a love of jars in all sizes. Found some of the large size- from old restaurant supplies- this weekend. One is filled with granola, one with steel cut oats and one with small antique christmas trees. Still have 5 more...

  4. Great jars! I also love collecting jars and other containers. It's hard for me to pass up anything that can be re-used or retrofitted for storage or display.
