A Must Have

It is no secret by now that I have a love affair with apothecary jars. They can come in so handy when you need a cute place to store things or want to show off a collection of tiny items. I have purchases most of mine at Home Goods over the years. Kurt has gotten to the point that he know if we are stopping, we will probably be coming home with a couple more that I could not resist! 

Here I have used them to store all of my supplies. It really helps me to see what I have and because of that, I have found that I get inspired to create much more often.

Let me tell you, they are the best for parties. They will make you look like a pro without much work at all. I used them at a friend's bridal shower here. The labels I designed and printed myself, but you could easy use precut tags from the scrapbook section and hand label them. I adore beautiful handwriting!

You can even find them in my bathroom filled with all the daily essentials:  soap, cotton balls, and Q-tips. They can make inexpensive items look so much more chic. Plus, you always know when you are running out!

I am sure I can find reasons to have more. For instance, a friend had suggested using them in the laundry room. The pantry or an office desk would work well, too. I could go on and on!

What are some of your favorite ways to store items in your home?
