Say it with Glass

comp-mothersDay
I have a weakness for containers – anything from cigar boxes to Chinese medicine cabinets (swoon!) to a vintage tin box – and I’m keen, oh so keen, on glass jars. They house many of my little treasures and are wonderful for making simple, pretty tokens of affection. Just fill one up with some dainty and cute things. Like you’re making a little poem inside a glass jar.

The one pictured here was a Mother’s Day token gift with a little Brooklyn blossom and a couple of gourmet tea-flower-balls inside.

Speaking of Mother’s Day, I have to share not 1, not 2, but 3 of my favorite posts by fellow bloggers for your reading pleasure.

[Judge not this not-food-centric interloping post, as the recipe for a yummy shomali (northern-Iranian) vegetarian fare (Fig & Quince’s very first guest-post written by darling Yvonne) is a bright star twinkling in the future of this ol’ blog.]

  1. I too love containers, especially glass. They hang around gathering dust and I gently dust them and admire their beauty. What a lovely Mothers Day gift the blossom and tea flower balls are just beautiful.
