Apothecary Jars utility decor purposes

Apothecary jars are great for home decor, it serves multiple purposes throughout the year.  Different usage for different seasons I would say.  We bought several of these jars from for our wedding and used it as the centerpiece, which was gorgeous.   And during the summer time, we fill the jar with fresh fruits.  Then the winter time / holiday season, it's a great elegant piece for ornaments.  And finally, when you're done with the utility phase of the piece, you can turn it into a fresh terrarium, like the picture above.  It's such a functional and beautiful piece of home decor piece.

my woodland weekend

Friday: found my new favorite Thai spot.
Saturday: worked hard in the garden, laying paths and spreading seeds.
Sunday: went mushroom hunting in the woods with some success. This is going to be my new favorite Spring activity. You can now find me wandering around the forest in search of these tiny morel morsels. It's terribly exciting when you actually find one. Above is my latest splendor.

zebra stripes

I am pretty smitten with most everything from Malutki, a new little jewelry shop on Etsy. Malutki (which I think means "tiny" in Polish) features simple, versatile and affordable adornments. I especially love their new zebrawood series. Plus, free shipping on everything, everywhere... "free shipping" just happens to be my two favorite shopping words. Good ideas for Mother's Day (one for mom, three for me...) Support your tiny jewelers.
