Say it with Glass

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.]

    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.

    We share the same weakness. Aren’t those little things precious? The jar pictured in the photo is simply lovely. What a great gift!

    Hi Francesca – great minds (souls?) think alike – right? I found these jars in a store and then on Amazon and I’m a big fan. Here’s a link in case you’d like to stock up:

    Can totally understand this container thing. I used to be mad about wooden boxes of all shapes and sizes. These day it’s just boring ol’ food props 🙂
