Inspirational Saying

In the corner of my garden, Where the wildflowers grow,
I sit and I admire, How God has graced us so.

Jar Holder

I took an old tool box, primed it, painted it and sanded the edges. I had some old ball jars of different styles and some old milk bottles in the garage. So I added them to the box. The framed quilt blocks were a couple of placemats I found at the Goodwill store, I just stuck them in old frames. Pretty and very easy.


  1. Thanks Lisa. I have had these jars and milk bottles for a long time. Just didn't know what to do with them until now.

  2. Great idea Christie!! I have several of these old tool boxes. I left one as it was without doing anything to it because I liked the way it looked and hung it upside down in my bathroom - I use it as a shelf and towel hanger. The handle serves as towel holder. I have a few prim items sitting on the shelf ( bottom).
    Thank you for visiting my blog The Krazy Kraft Lady! I am not sure as to what 'bird' or crow you were referring to in your comment, but more than likely it was a crow. ;)


  3. It was the crow. I do love them. They go good with primitive decor. That is a cool idea turning it upside down, that's one I never thought of!
