It is a fact that if you have a lot of ‘stuff’ you need somewhere safe and accessible to store it. This has and no doubt always will be an issue for me – the keeper of all things useful past present and future. I like lots of shelves filled with treasures – and I particularly like glass containers for their ‘see through’ value (despite the fact that glass plus our many cats are not a good combination).
I once bought a dozen Bonne Maman jam jars from a ‘past the use by’ table at Coles and in no time they were emptied, washed, dried and put to good use in the music room to hold stationery bits and pieces. Not so easy to find more of these for my collection, now that they are no longer a supermarket item, however my friend Debbie kindly located some in a speciality shop for me……and I picked up a few mini sample jars from a hotel in London.
