Upcycling Jars, Bottles, and Other Glass Containers.
I cook ALOT. I’m quite proud of my little collection of herbs, spices, teas, legumes, and other dried edibles. Not so much for the actual contents, but for the fact that 90% of the glass containers were upcycled. I saved my kimchi jars, pasta sauce jars, pickle jars, jam jars, booze jars - errrr, whatever I bum off the bartender, and etc. I especially love using the Canada Dry tonic water bottles for my spices; the wine corks I save fits the perfectly as a stopper! The rest of my containers are usually rescued from flea markets and thrift shops.
I encourage everyone to find a place in their homes for glass packaging. Keep them out of the dumpster.
We finally got to repot our beloved Entlings in these vintage cups and cauldrons ! These, as well as the glass jars, the doilies and the selenite tower, are from this weekend’s thrift store/flea markets’ finds. We got very, very lucky ! The jars will be emptied and used to make terrariums in the near future.
Two new additions to my medical bottle collection- hard to date exactly, but somewhere at the turn of the 20th century. The Red Cross Toothache Drops have liquid left inside but why Dr. Caldwell’s is empty
Part of my latest fascination of putting things in a bottle. This was made from a glass bottle with cork bought from a craft store, blue and purpleish freshwater pearl-esque beads (not sure if they are freshwater pearl beads or not), a glue/water mix (my own recipe), paper and pen for the label, matte Mod Podge, jump rings, and E6000.
