It's in the Jar

Welcome to my happy place.....a place with jars. 

It's Spring cleaning time in my church building studio, so I've been dusting, rearranging and trying to destash.  I like storing art supplies in gass jars.

So, what's in the jars? 
millinery flowers, vintage jewelry, lace, clay roses, glittery letters, clothes pins, fabric yo yos, fabric roses, old keys, scrabble tiles, sea shells, vintage Christmas ornaments, ribbons, lavender  

A lazy susan with vintage creamers and sugars holds decorative pins, miniature parasols, glitter, and other bits and pieces. 



Supplies are visible and within reach.  
This is a happy place.

I share your love of glass jars. Although my jars certainly aren't as fancy as yours, I love them just the same. Glass looks so wonderful when it is clean and shiny. It also makes me feel super organized when I have my little bits and pieces in jars. Even little bits of junk look special when stored in a glass jar.

Just know now that Jars meant happiness because they place in a happy place. I like the design underneath. It's organize, and look happy as ever. Love to come to that place also.

Ele, I LOVE the jars all the same, lined up in a row. Your craft room looks like a candy store!
