What's In Your Apothecary Jars?



I need a little inspiration!

Green apples at the moment (fake ones!). I only have one really big on though and would love a couple smaller ones for seashells or other objects from nature.

Thank you for visiting my blog and for your kind comments. You will love Rosemary Beach. I live just 5 miles west of Rosemary Beach. Not sure if you have been there before, but just travel west about 9-ish miles and visit Seaside and WaterColor. You'll love those places. Oh, and be sure to have lunch or dinner at George's in Alys Beach just next door to Rosemary Beach.

I would fill those apothecary jars with seashells and driftwood. You'll have a chance to collect jars full of each at Rosemary Beach.

Here's how I have filled mine:

Have a great day!

No, something small. You could go for a nature theme: acorns, stones, small pinecones. Or then you could do different size beads. Or maybe a theme of seashells and sand?

not sure, but i have to say they are very pretty jars.

Or. what about a little color for the holidays or seasons? For Valentines--Red Dove Promise chocolates in one; pomegranites in one; and maybe red colored water in the other. Easter---pastel Hershey kisses, plastic or other easter eggs, and something else that picks up one of the pastel colors; July 4th---red, white, and blue, etc. And at Christmas, I love the look of Christmas balls in different sizes and perhaps three colors that coordinate with your house.

Maryland themes - sea glass, shells, river rocks - you can find them on your own (right...with all of your free time) or get them at Michael's.

I hate this time of year. You put up Fall, Halloween, Harvest, then Christmas decorations.Then the middle of January comes and it's too early to put Spring things in, resulting in a lot of empty space. I keep looking at my mantel and wondering "what did I used to have up there?"
I hope you come up with a good solution to the empty containers. I could use some inspiration also.

The only ones I have are in my bathroom and they hold my Q-tips, soap and cotton balls. That's about all I have come up with so far!

Valentine's stuff right now. Crinkle paper and vintage valentines. The possibilities are endless.

Hopefully it gives you some ideas!

Ohhh... I like Kay's idea of using Hershey kisses, although they wouldn't last too long around these parts. lol

Maybe some marbles or mini-fruit pieces.

I have 3 very similar containers that I use to store flour, coffee, & sugar on my counter tops.

Simple & chic.

Mine are empty right now LOL!

But I've put little apples in them, sparkly things, pinecones, seashells, how about a bunch of little red hearts for Valentines day?
