Fresh flowers in vintage jars~shabby chic cottage decor

Sorry, no major projects this weekend. I am the chairperson for a huge tag sale at Sami's school. The downfall is that I have to do everything. The upside though is that we vend our own table and can make some money on our own. So, I've been schlepping my stuff there all day today.....

I wanted to add a little color to my space so I decided to use a bunch of the vintage jars I found in the BOTTLE DUMP. I scrubbed every single one to perfection. I added some twine around the body of the bottles with a price tag. My tags are recycled from old business cards with outdated information. I picked ferns, azaelas, lily of the valley, lemon balm, and ajuga to put in each one.

They all came out so pretty. At least if they don't sell, I will have great centerpieces to display at home....

Be sure to end my Etsy seller GIVEAWAY...

  9. I'm sure at the back of your mind you kinda don't want them to sell because you want to put them up in your house.
