I love to collect all sorts……there really is no rhyme or reason anymore to my collecting.
I take that back……there is one exception……it was the time I went thru the black and white cow thing…..everybody and his uncle and his mama decided to get me a black and white cow, so I have some strange cow related household items that I’ve……put away……for a very long time.
Needless to say I no longer collect black and white cows (ix nay on cow teapot, sugar bowl and creamer….thank goodness). I now just pick up what catches my eye.
So the other day I was in World Market picking up hubby’s digestive biscuits; plain, milk chocolate and dark chocolate, a veddy, veddy English indulgence (and glad now that we have a local source for them) and ya know….you just can’t help whilst you’re there to look around.
I mean really! Step in and out of that store without taking a look-see? PUH LEESE!
So there I am nosing around my favorite part of the store…the KITCHEN aisles (all right already…I know I don’t like to cook but a girl can look can’t she?).
Anyway I’m a-nosing around and I happen upon these cute little spice jars and I stopped…….and stared….and my mind gets-a-going thinking….. how I can use these little gems……mmmmh?
A friend told me about how she uses her spice jars…but only after the spices are gone…and I think to myself why wait for the different spice smells to disappear besides, I would sniffle every time I opened the darned jars.
These jars come in a set of 4 so I bought 3 sets….that’s 12 spice jars for the price of $3.99 a set.
CAN YOU BEAT THAT PRICE?
And here’s the jolt of colour in my studio that I am so excited by.
My Bead Collection!
…some of you will note that I have gone back to the bead soup way of organizing them, What a colour feast for the eyes!!!
…and you want to know the best thing about them……………I can shake them out in the extra large holes at the top of the screw top lid. How darned cool is that!!!!!
It’s the small things that get us to that state of mind.
See Liz….this one’s for you! Happy Reading.
See ya next time, “In the Hayloft”
