I just love old apothecary jars.
I've never bought one though because so far I've never found one for a "steal".
So on a seemingly different topic, I was cleaning out my fridge the other day and decided to get rid of an old jar of Chili Sauce. I bet you know where this is going. ;)
When I washed out the jar the label came off. I was walking it out to our recycle bin. I really, really, did plan to throw this out. Then it struck me how the shape of the bottle had a vintage look to it.
So I printed out an apothecary label from the wonderful Graphics Fairy and used Mod Podge to adher it to the bottle.
There you have it. A new "old" apothecary jar.
I filled it with flowers from my Chaste tree.
Behind it is a wonderful old box I picked up at an antique store. It has wonderful patina. The little mercury glass bird was after Christmas clearance at Target.
