Strawberries still in season...


I'm still in strawberry mode and perpetually sidetracked :)

This is one of my strawberry displays. On the top shelf is an apothecary jar filled with antique strawberry emeries. The little basket on the bottom contains teeny tiny strawberry emeries that I made with scraps of velvet too precious to throw away lol. 



I recently found these two old jars at a flea market. They are missing their lids, but I still loved them. I really like the detail on the jar on the left. My husband thought it might have been a pickle jar.

I wasn't sure what I would do with them, but needed to have them nonetheless.

Then it came to me...

I love them and am so glad that I bought the jars :)

Wishing you a week filled with unexpected delights!
Blessings, Patti

I love your jars. I like to collect canning jars with different logos, etc. Your jar on the left might have contained coffee? Thanks for the new idea on what to place in my jars! I'm always stuck for ideas. Now I will be on the look out for old stawberry emorys. What a divine prim look!

Great jars, I always look for jars that i can use, in the consignment stores. Great for putting buttons and supplies in.

I just ate some strawberries with balsamic vinegar - sounds bad but is SO good. You can never have too many - fresh or fabulous!
