The ubiquitous recycled glass jar. Creative ideas abound online for this delightfully transparent trend, for which I cannot stop pinning and bookmarking. (My appreciation never wanes when it comes to something so highly functional, free and eco-friendly.)
As a creative mom I felt compelled to transform a few of my own last year (see below); and ever since I've been kind of, well, addicted. Seriously. I'm now incapable of pitching a single glass vessel into our recycling bin. In my eyes (not always my husband's), each jar has potential — to be something more than just a peanut butter container, jar of artichokes or bottle of olives.
Rescued jars have found new purpose all around our house: holding nuts in the kitchen, toothbrushes in the bathroom, markers in the art closet, thumbtacks in the office, wooden spoons next the stove. This probably sounds strange, but it gives me joy to see these jars with newfound lives: not just in our home, but everywhere else.
