I love these..that first pic is really striking! I have a couple, one if filled with old cloths pins and sits on my laundry room. Love them! :D

Adrienne said...

Lovely! You found a lot! I love the way you are using them for bright flowers. I have several old, clear jars that belonged to my sweetheart's grandmother - I need to get them out and use them again. For many years I used them for dried beans, rice and other kitchen things. Think it's time to 'recycle' them back into the kitchen again.

The beauty in such utilitarian things!...like the blue Danish pots and pans I collect. I love the idea of re-purposing such pedestrian articles.

Penny, what wonderful blue mason jars you have found! I have the screw on lid on like in your picture with loose vanilla tea from Maine in it. I also have the one with the glass lid and I have rose petals in that one! They are great!

These are wonderful. I visited a Lavender Farm today on the cape and thought of you. Not quite Provence, but lovely and I brought home a bouquet.

Have a wonderful day.
