Much to J’s distress, I’m addicted to bottles. Empty bottles. Or jars. Of any sort. I have a whole cupboard crammed with cleaned jars that were once upon a time filled with dill pickles, berry jams and spices, and bottles that have long been emptied of sparkling Italian cola. I have many uses for these recycled gems when I’m entertaining. I put tealights in them and hang them on trees or bunch them together on benches and tables, I fill them with water and pretty them with long or short stem flowers, and I wrap twine around their bodies and use them to hold cutlery. Here’s a pic of my two latest finds. I love the shapes and the imprinting. Do you also love to use your jars and bottles long after they’re emptied of their contents? And, if so, got any ideas to add to the mix?
