When I’m out shopping (especially at antique or thrift stores) one of my favorite things to look for is glass containers of all shapes and sizes. I don’t even always have a use for them in mind, but I know I’ll find something perfect to use them for. I’ve done pretty well with restraining myself, but here are a few of the ones I’ve bought over the years.
Here they’re on a wire and glass shelf in our bathroom. I love this little collection because it’s a pretty way to house something really ordinary, and I really like the contrast of the black and white.
This next one is a more recent purchase – I bought it in the fall to put vintage Christmas ornaments in as a table centerpiece. We used it a couple of weeks ago for C’s birthday party, and, well…
Eventually we’ll replace them with something else. Ideas?
We used to have a hurricane vase filled with shells we’d collected in Florida, but now that vase has been commandeered by Brian.
It’s actually kind of fun, because when we have people over they often just dive right in and start building.I wouldn’t mind having something pretty to display in it again, but such is life when you’re the only female in the house (well, besides the dog, who woefully lacks any home decor interest).
Do you use glass containers in your house? What do you use them for?
