Remnants in a Jar or two

What's left on the workdesk
after some happy time spent with beautiful lace fabrics
are the little remnants of the day.

Too beautiful to be thrown away
yet too small to be put on a pile on the shelf.
What's a girl to do?

Dig up some trash jars
and upcycle them into lovely storage jars.

They're a bit shabby French style, don't you think?

I totally fell in love with the shabby Frenchness Jeanne d'Arc Living style. I have Pinterest to thank for it. But I know that although I love the white and grey hues of it the soberness in colour the roughness on the edges

after a while I will miss the sweet soft pale colours and even the happy bright ones.

And then it's time for yet another change.

Call it mood swings.
Crafty mood swings that is!


I'm still trying to find my own style
and feel like a copy cat until now (and probably many days after)

The only thing what's left to do for me now
is finding me some extra jars and probably shelves too
because I wanna make some more.

These two are for City Crafter's


Make or decorate a container (giftbox, bag, card holder, etc)

And our lovely host this week is Ros.
Thank you dear, I love this theme!

My dear blogfriend Milagros from Puerto Rico is our guest designer. She has so many unique and creative ideas so I'm happy she's joining the team this week.

And I'm sharing this post with Becky's Blissful Whites Wednesday.
Thank you Becky for hosting such a lovely gathering every week!

Last but not least:

I'd like to share with you
the images I used in these projects

Sending you warm hugs and wishing you a sweet week.

Au revoir!

  11. Hi Wendy--oh, you like so many of the same things as I do!! I love your idea of putting the day's leavings in pretty jars as the "remains of the day". I love to save the little bits also, sometimes you find just the little thing that makes your artwork sing, that you would not have thought of. Love the greys and whites and divine images as well. Have fun on pinterest (says the woman with over 20,000 pins!). :)
