Charm is deceptive & beauty is fleeting: but the woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

Homemade Apothecary Jars

Recently, I came across a super cute blog, Shanty2Chic, that I am obsessed with. One day, hopefully in the near future, I will learn how to link from my blog to another but for now, all I can do is give their website {A HUGE thank you goes out to Joy for teaching me how to link. You can not imagine my level of excitement over this!! Whoooo Hooo!} They are incredibly talented and use alot of the same stuff that I like to work with.
Needless to say, I have been inspired. So much so that I kinda sorta in a way copied one of their projects. I just love apothecary jars but there is no way I can pay the kind of money people ask for them. I can however make some like the Shanty Sisters did. I made the 3 shown below and I love how they turned out! I made them using unfinished wood candlestick, wood rounds, wood finials and mason jars. Ok, one is an old olive jar I had in the cabinet...but you get the point) Again I say....TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH THEM!
I have been letting my mind wander and come up with all sorts of seasonal things to fill them with. Whooo hooo! So excited!
