DECORATING STORAGE JARS
THEODORA CLEAVE'S BUTTONS
COPYRIGHT PHOTOGRAPHS & DESIGNS BARBARA SMITH
These are as much fun as decorating soaps
The theme of decorating can change with just adding different fabrics, ribbons, ric rac, felt.
I used a very few selections of trims that were easy to do...
as this began straight I had eaten Sunday breakfast !
I don't know about you but I collect things in stores I visit...
where ever I am I am switched on to my design business
and a good part of that is having the useful gear at hand when I need it..so I collect.
I pop ribbons & laces & odd things which I now call bling into a variety of sized fabulous storage jars which I purchase at a great price in Provincial Decor Living stores.
Also for gifts and of course for your own good self..
Using a button theme too me to different uses..
Tea Bags storage could have a teapot & cup on the outside or on a tag tied to the lid knob
Cookies for gifts etc with a cupcake or 2..hearts...gingerbread men
Seed storage from your garden with a flower button of the many styles I have available..
Bird seed ..add the birdy buttons... oodles of those too!!
The Cat or Dog Bickies do need a beautiful jar with a cat or a dog button..
What about Christmas ?????
We might just do that in another post...later !
PS check out how Jenny at the Stitchery ( see side bar ) has used some of my buttons as well as many other divine things to make her vintage eggs... they are super !
