I have been stalking this huge glass jar for a while now. Isn't she lovely? I first saw one like this at Crate and Barrel, but didn't want to give up my first born to pay for it. But, a couple months back I happened to stumble upon the VERY same jar at, of all places, Wal-Mart. It was only $12.97, and still I begrudgingly passed it by. I have a rule that I cannot buy anything unless I know what I'm gonna use it for. Everything I bring into this house needs to serve a purpose, not just sit in a closet unused until I find somewhere for it. (p.s...that rule gets broken sometimes) But I digress. Sooooo, most of you know of my unhealthy addiction to ribbon. It started small, but soon got out of control. My ribbon collection was taking up an entire drawer in my kitchen buffet. Now, I have to be honest here...it was really fun to have my very own ribbon drawer...FULL of fabulous ribbon. Sometimes I would just open it up and adoringly look through my stash. I know...I'm weird. But that ribbon drawer's first intention was for some of my extra craft supplies, and they got kicked to the curb pretty quick and became homeless...(cluttering up my bedroom). I live in a smallish house with a family of 6...I have to be extremely creative in my storage solutions.
So my beautiful ribbon found a new home in this very large glass jar, that is basically just asking to be broken by my rough and rowdy children. I'm willing to take that risk...I'm living on the edge, I tell ya!
I still have more to put in the jar...shhhhhhh.
And for a toally random ending to this post...I got this lovely hand towel at Target today for $1.24. It is their Fieldcrest brand and the original price was $9.99. I thought the damask pattern was beautiful and the color matches my bathroom perfectly. I love it when that happens! Anyway, I'm off to bed...gotta get up early for the yard sales!!!
Y'all have a great weekend.
