Jar Head


My work space, which is always rather messy, has been getting totally out of hand recently and I've been meaning to get all my bits and bobs organised. While browsing through a shop in town that's always full of the most fantastic vintage items, I came across a stack of these amazing vintage jars on a shelf. Now this shop is as a rule horribly over-priced, way above my student budget, but as these were marked at just £2 each I couldn't resist and now they're home I can't stop looking at them! So I thought I'd share them with you. They have a really nice tarnished patina on the gold screw tops which is making my day, frankly!


As to actually getting organised, they're too pretty to have anything useful in so we'll see about that!

oh yesyes! i had the luck of finding some jars quite similar to these not too long ago myself.. and i've used them for supplies and odds & ends too! i love how you can easily see what you've put where because they're glass :)
