Jars of inspiration

I don't know about you but I'm a bit of an obsessive collector.  One of my more recent collections (as in the past couple of years) has been old glass jars.  In fact the collection is growing so big that I'm not entirely sure what to do with them all any more!  I've collected everything from mason jars, to old medicine bottles, to glass soda pop ones.  My main use for them has always been for flowers (I love nothing more than a big bunch of wild flowers from the field or side of the road) but was wanting to find some new ways to use them as well.  And my conclusion?  Their potential is endless... so I'll keep collecting! :).


  1. I love glass jars, as well, especially little bud vases for flowers.
    My family once dug up a huge collection of antique medicine and liquor bottles that had been buried in their backyard who-knows-when. The colors of the glass are all different and they're so lovely!

    1. Oh wow! That's amazing, how lucky to find something like that buried in your backyard. Makes you wonder why they buried them all!

  2. Oh sweet I have been collecting Agee jars since I was a teenager, and I too live all jars, bottles and old glass!!!!! Perfect and simple for the most beautiful of flowers.
    Happy happy Christmas, how exciting this time next year you will have a little person to celebrate with.
    Sending much love to you and family.
