Jam Jars

Would you ever believe that a jam jar could work so beautifully as a vase? 

All I did was glue a length of vintage ribbon around a classic Smucker's jam jar and...Voila! 

You see, I was at the Ann Arbor Antiques Market and I happened to find a booth that was all vintage millinery items (gorgeous!).  The dealer sold her collection of ribbons and seam tape by the yard.  I bought a yard of the print that you see above, a spool of mauve thread and a card of buttons.  It was so much fun.

I am telling you this because now is the time to be rinsing out and saving your glass jam and salsa jars.  Spring will be here before you know it and you will need them to make some super cute vases.  Stay tuned.
