A Jar is More Than a Jar....

Good afternoon.  I enjoy repurposing items that I love in a creative way 
so that I can display them.  I found this old Anchor Hocking jar that has a 
glass lid.  It is completely awesome!  I had to display it somewhere!  
So here is what I came up with...

The lid on this jar is glass and it is awesome!

Another really cool thing about this jar is that the front side of the jar is clear 
without pattern so you can easily view the photos.  The jar is almost like it was 
made to be a frame!!! Lol!

Okay, so the reason that this is so ideal is because I have a lot 
of old photos that I want to keep protected and by keeping them in the jar, 
I can accomplish that.  You can't keep a lot of photos in a frame, but in a 
jar... you have more "storage space".

So, now I just have to find the picture that I want to display.  There are two photos of 
my mom that I love and I need to choose between the two.

I think I will go with the younger photo of her.

Okay, so next... I stacked the photos together so that I could see the "layers" of old photos...
you know, from shortest to tallest...

I had to curve the stack to get them to go inside of the jar.

I put the lid back on.

...and here it is!  The photos look great in this old jar.

I hope this inspires you to use items items 
you love in unconventional ways! 

Please leave a comment to let me know what you think.

Until next time, be blessed!
