Ideas and Inspiration....

Ideas and inspiration.... Being obvious with our organizing can also showcase our homes......
A perfect way of being obvious is the use of a canning or great half gallon or gallon glass jar holding food products. The jars can hold everything from cookies to crafting supplies.... Don't want to spend money for a glass cloche at this time..... I used a half gallon olive jar and turned it upside down... ties a soft crinkle ribbon around area that lid attaches and sat it on a lovely 8" pink rose vintage plate and tucked a pink Santa inside for a holiday look... It was really sweet... { sorry I don't have photo} Outside living I use allot of glass jars.... For holding candles....flowers.... and pint jars for serving a iced tea or lemonade... Oh dear... in entered my barefoot living again...
Antique ceiling tins and old tin trays of all kinds can be a loved piece of decorating and double as a magnetic board.... a great place to ad a old photo or a lovely tag...
Just a couple ideas for a well-loved-cozy-relaxed home... with a touch of your unique personality... with this kind of thinking, about every 6 months you can have a new house and still live in the one that everyone loves... especially you.....
