Little Decorated Glass Jars

I just can't seem to throw out a glass jar anymore, no matter how hard I try. I keep decorating them in hopes of selling them soon but I'm so busy I can't seem to find the time to list them somewhere. But it calms me to just sit in my studio and make them. Maybe someday...

And just threw this together. A little shabby chic ragged flower with a covered button. I loved making this. I think I'll wear it on a jacket instead of a t-shirt since I'll just pin it instead of sewing it on.


  1. The decoated jars look fabulous and what a sweet shabby flower

  2. Loks like a little bit of Laura Ashley in your flower, Connie?
    Your jars are so sweet.

  3. Hi Connie, I love these glass jars! That homemade button is cute too! You are so talented girl!


  4. Connie ~
    Those are such sweet creations ! I love your roses in your previous post too ~ they are beautiful !

  5. How cute that flower will look on a denim jacket!
    Keep making the jars, they're cute.

    I enjoyed your comments on the outdoor shower.......Your thoughts are mine! Ooooops! LOL

  6. They're awfully pretty, Connie. I miss crafting while I'm here in SD - so I totally understand why it calms you and makes you happy.


  7. I love the homemade button/pin you made. It would look sharp on a demin jacket.

  8. Gorgeous crafts coming out of the studio this week Connie.

  9. Good morning sweet friend! You have inspired me! During my cupboard cleanout I trimmed up a lace jar and hot glued some faux flowers to it. I love your pretty label you used on the outside! I hope you have a lovely day,

  10. Once again, very pretty things that you have shared with us today!!

  11. Very clever and pretty Connie. You are the ultimate recycle queen!!!

    If you have a moment please come over and leave a comment for my grandson. I posted about his birthday today and he will be loving the comments. Just being the grandma and begging!!!Laughing.

    Hugs, Jeanne

  12. Connie, you are so talented and like you, I can't make myself throw out jars. If my aunt can't use them,I try to think of ways to use them in my craft room. I like our idea of decorating them for tea light candles. The flower is so cute. I made one out of suede with my sizzex. Guess I should post it. Love and hugs, Pat

  13. Hello Connie, I'm still making my Pink Saturday visits. Thankyou so much for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment. I love your post this week. Your makover on the jars are so pretty! I love colors of your paper roses on your previous post. They are stunning!

    Hope that you and Love Bunny are enjoying the week!

  15. Love the flower Connie!!!! Just gorgeous! Rachaelxo

  16. Your bottle is gorgeous, Connie. I was so thrilled with my first bottle I did a couple weeks ago. Now I wouldn't think of EVER discarding a bottle ... it is fun.

    Have a great weekend.

  17. So fun! I just bought a bunch of teeny tiny jars for a dime. Now I know what to do with them. Thanks!

  18. Connie it is so funny- I had clicked on your blog to come visit and while it was loading clicked on my yahoo mail to check it and saw you note left- We were thinking of each other at the same time!

    Your glass jars are just the sweetest!! I found a jar thrifting for 50 cents - I think I might have to try something like this with it!

    Happy PS

    Have a great weekend!

  19. Happy Pink Saturday COnnie Sweetie...
    I love this post and what beautiful pinks you have today. I love the way you decorate the jars. Recycling is such fun. I love the little pieces of rick rack that you also added, what an element of surprise.

    Love your little pin that you have made to wear on a dress, jacket or shirt. So cute. What a pretty button it makes. I know people must stop you and ask you where you buy these beautiful little surprises of yours. So pretty.

    Thank you for asking about my health. I thought it was just a cold, but Wednesday I found out it is pneumonia. I am on antibiotics and prednisone, some heavy duty cough syrup to surpress the cough, it has worked up my asthma something fierce. I have coughed so hard I pulled a chest muscle that is causing spasms across my chest and up into my neck. Very painful for now. I am still running 103 fever today, so resting as much as I can, but wanted to visit a few blogs while I was up.

    Have a beautiful May Day sweetie. Have a day filled with happiness and sunshine. Country hugs and much love...Sherry

  20. Your jars are so pretty!! Love the flower!
