Lovely! I have seen something similar before and have been meaning to try it. The idea I saw previously was vintage colored jars and black and white family photos. Both are great!

I always love your displays and collections and these are no different.

I did a double-take...I thought those were your birds in MSL, and I thought, how did I miss that?

Nothing fills my heart with more joy than seeing art supplies in jars all about the studio - it speaks to all the possibilities that are out there waiting to be had. Your birds lining them make them only more beautiful. Carolina

I LOVE this idea, they are so much more interesting than a boring old picture frame, I love using things with shape and dimension, so jars would be great, and the wide variety of shapes you could find, what fun!

Fabulous! I had seen the same article of MSL, and was inspired to go out and purchase several jars. However, I scoured Etsy for some Audubon style bird prints, but was never able to find any that I liked and that were affordable. Great idea to make your own! I also like another commentor's idea of using b&w photos.

Hola Geninne: Tengo un proyecto llamado Proyecto Estantería, donde cada cierto tiempo cambio la decoración como si fuera las vitrinas de una tienda. Intento hacerlo con cosas que tengo en casa. Esta idea la voy a usar la próxima vez, Gracias!

Hola, Geninne! Me encantó ver ese peso argentino enrolladito en el frasco, tan tímidamente :)
Saludos desde Buenos Aires. Guardá ese peso, es una antigüedad que algún día valdrá mucho!!
