I love glass jars. Yes, vintage, but I also love glass jars that previously held pickles, mustard, capers, artichokes.....you name it. These upcycled jars currently hold confetti and snippets of vintage papers, but you know you can think of a million other things to nestle in them. Even a tiny gift.
Some of the upcylced materials include manilla folders, greeting cards, vintage buttons, fabric trims, bits of leftover scrapbook paper and leftover beading. I handpunch the confetti from bitty paper scraps while watching a good Bogart movie on TV. Bogart and my handpunches have a long-time relationship. DH says he can't believe what is left from 1 piece of 12"x12" scrapbook paper after making cards, ACEOs, collages and mixed media and finally confetti----> Lint!
The collection of supplies comes from years of a passion for creating, including sewing, crocheting, knitting, needlwork and fine arts. I also have this "new soap syndrome", for lack of a description for the afflication. Ya know how you get a wonderful, beautiful, fabulous new bar of soap for a gift, and then you don't want to use it.....some of my supplies are like that, I don't want them to end. Especially the ones that are difficult, impossible or very expensive to replace. The lace on these jars is vintage, it will be never more.
