A SIMPLE LITTLE PICKLE JAR

Vases.

The expensive little shops and boutiques are full of them.

And they're very pretty.

But I prefer a simple little pickle jar for my garden bouquets. 

 Add a label that you can download from the Graphics Fairy and it becomes something special.  I like to print the label on heavy tan colored cardstock, cut it out, scrunch it up (even tear it a bit here and there), then iron it (yes, iron it), and put a little Mod-Podge on the back (not on the front), and adhere it to the side of the jar.  

Tie it all up with a piece of cooking twine (you can find it at the grocery store), and you have a unique, and inexpensive little jar that is perfect for those end of summer bouquets!  And . . .  maybe someone will even think you found this "antique-jar-with-the-original-label-still-attached" at a charming shop in a quaint little town in the countryside!


It's perfect for giving to all your flower-loving friends too!  You should surprise someone with a special little homemade "vase" and bouquet today. 

That's what I'm going to do.
