inspiration break

I'm not entirely sure why, but I loooove jars. I think that the organizing nerd in me loves how they can be of use to store pretty things or to show off pretty things.
Here's how I've been using them lately....

I'm also working on decorating some to use on my patio. I promise to show photos once the outside patio transformation is finished. But until then, here are some lovely photos I've found via the web that have inspired me. ....

I share your love of jars! Especially ones with coloured glass. They look best with candles in them! x

I compulsively save jars, swearing I'm going to use them to store all my trinkets.

But I never get around to it and I wind up with piles of empty jars, pile my Husband has to sneakily discard every few months so our house doesn't look like it belongs to a crazy hoarder lady (even though it does.)

Where did you get the jars for your buttons? (and where do you get your buttons?) I've been wanting to do that forever! ;)

Love how you separated them by color! I love jars too, but usually odd-shaped or colored vintage ones. I have one with a flower bouquet beautifully blown into the glass. Awesome post!

These are all so cute & such awesome/easy ideas...

P.S. How did I just find your blog? So cute! :)

Ugh! So jealous of your button collection. ;)

I just bought some mason jars for my button collection. They're so cute to store items in.
