In my blogging dreams I was going to participate in the "31 Days Of" series hosted throughout October over at The Nester. In my dreams I would write 31Days of finishing projects that are already started or are just too simple to have not done yet. But I was scared off by the whole making a post every day thing, as well as that I probably would not actually complete a project each of the 31 days, and then I would have been a liar, and I am not a liar, so I decided that maybe I should go for a more reasonable goal, finishing 15 things and blogging about them, and finishing this sentence.
I had been looking for the right spice rack to hold my vintage spice jars for a while when I came across this one at a church rummage sale for 50 cents. This is the same rummage sale where I found the table top that I turned into our dining room table. The table top was several years ago, the spice rack was just a few weeks ago. Most of my projects stand in line for much more than 2 weeks but the poor jars had been cluttering my counter top for months so I let it move to the head of the line.
So I cleaned it up,
and painted it and waxed it,
and loaded it up,
Oh I love these jars - I got them at Bungalow 47. You might remember... because I'm sure that you have nothing to think about except my spice jars.
It was kind of plain so I striped it up a little bit . . .
but I didn't measure . . . can you tell?
It's nice to have those jars off the counter.
And because I have a really bad memory, I have a little secret label telling me what is in each container. Except for the cinnamon and cayenne pepper, because those jars actually contain cinnamon and cayenne pepper.
I'm happy. Are you happy?
One down 14 to go. Stay tuned for Project 2.
Make something wonderful today!
