Glass. It’s a pretty amazing substance.
And just plain pretty. I am becoming more and more enamored with crystal-clear and shiny-clean glass. Even rinsing a salsa jar to toss into the recycle bin, I am a little impressed with the beauty of it, the simple glass jar. I know. I’m weird. But you are reading me so you must be weird, too.
Yay for all of us becoming more aware of wastefulness and how to avoid it. Yay for re-purposing, re-using, re-cycling. Yay for shiny glaass catching the light and then letting it go to dance around the room.
And yay for pretty jars that can serve as flower vases – hanging bud vessels – candle holders – tea glasses – penny holders – marble holders – bug collections – vacation souvenirs showcases – photo displayers – art supply organizers – speciman vials – mixed paints containers – light catchers – lemonade flasks – flour cannisters – grandbebe treasure receptacles – utensil storage – bath salts bottles – and all sorts of other fun stuff!
I mean, how sweet is this? From Young House Love.
