Well, it looks like my collection of clear jars is growing. It started with the Mason jars found at thrift stores, then I began saving the store bought jars from preserves and sauces, soda bottles also made it here and even a big pickle jar. The thing was, they were scattered all around the house, some of them were in the garage, some others in the basement, the Mason jars were here and there, I didn't even know I had so many! ...
...Until about a week ago when I happened to check these boxes.
These boxes were given to my daughter by one of my husband's friends, he is moving out of state so he's selling and giving away lots of stuff. Since, he knows my daughter likes to make little figures, he thought these paints and brushes and art stuff would be something she might enjoy. ;)
My daughter took out of the boxes lots of things, mostly items she can use with the making of her Polymer clay figures, the rest, what you see here, was left for "later" and since that later never came, I went to check and put everything in its proper place.
The thing that immediately draw me in besides the paint, were these cute glass containers, they are tiny!
Look at this cool Ball jar with the mesh lid, I love it! I have no idea what's inside it but I don't want to throw away its content without knowing what it is.
Now you know, instead of emptying the boxes and organizing everything, I got "motivated" to find my -collection- and show it off. :)
The floating shelves I built in the powder room were the perfect set up.
Besides the small jars, some other items from the carton boxes made it here too, like the wooden sticks and spatula in the previous picture.
The wooden figure was another one from those boxes.
But cotton balls, Q-tips, bandages, soaps, nail tools and some other things also made it here.
Taking pictures in this small space was not easy, here is how it looks from the outside. You can click HERE to see how it looked before or if you want to see the how to for the floating shelves.
Now that I'm done with the jars I need to go and find a place for the paints and the other knickknacks ;)
