Ideas for Decorating with Mason Jars 2

Two different jars with two great ideas. The picture on the right the jar has a zinc lid (glass removed) and has been made into a lamp. You will need a drill bit meant to be used with glass. The lilacs on the left a from a neighbor's bush and I put them in a 12" tall wire ball mason. Visually the tall jar supports the height of the flowers.

Idea for Decorating with Mason Jars

I love mason jars and their many uses! Usually they come in green and clear and they can be found in many different sizes. Currently I have a 12" jar filled with lilacs on my table. 
Great ideas: Floating candles, floating flowers, hanging lights,storage jars, drinking jars.

One Last Word on Crates

I have had a few requests for newer wine crates set up on the floor that I have pictured in one of my posts. Since I only sell antique and vintage I can't provide you with the newer crates. Here are a couple of pictures to give you an idea of what the antique crates will look. You provide all the goodies to go in them.

Ideas for Vintage Cameras Part 2

What terrific ideas! A vertical shelf is really unique looking and makes the column not look so distracting. The second picture has a Polaroid 360 (or similar) in the center of a bunch of books on a window sill. The last picture is full of Twin-lens reflex cameras. Neat little cameras that usually are only good for decorating and hiding a little something in.

Ideas for Vintage Cameras Part 1

Anyone who looks at my shop knows I have a thing for old cameras! Fun to play with and for some fun to use. I am going to do a few posts with pictures for ideas on how to decorate with them.

These 3 pictures are all from one man's apartment using vintage cameras. The display looks great and wasn't expensive until he bought the cameras. There are some expensive cameras in the collection. There is a nice Polaroid SX-70 in the middle shot! Take a look around a see if you can spot a few and send me a message.

Ideas for Crates Part 3

I just love these ideas!! You will need to be a little handy to make the pet dish holder but what a great use of a crate. I think it would be a good idea to seal the crate with polyurethane so it doesn't get ruined by the water.

The middle crate is a Coke soda crate but a Pepsi, Atreat (I have loads!) or any other brand would work just as well.

The last crate on the bike is a beautiful wine box. I LOVE wine boxes. That aren't that easy to find but they are almost always beautiful and worth the search!
