Perfect Gift for a Quilter…or Button Collector…or…

Slow News Day here on the West Coast of Canada…so I turned to my trusty camera for some advice on what to write about…and look at what she spit out!!

I CAN’T believe I haven’t shared these with you before this!! 

P1180124-001 These gorgeous jars were a Birthday gift from my friend, Delores!  Delores spotted them at a Craft Fair and thought of ME…I’m SEW lucky to have such sweet friends!! 

And it’s such a sweet gift..and simple to make…just eat lots of peanut butter …and then scrub out the GLASS jars and give each jar a swipe of blackboard paint (and if you use the same paint to paint the lids you can write on those too).  That’s it…done!!  Each jar came with a piece of chalk inside!  GREAT GIFT!!  I love them!!  And don’t they look pretty!  Yup, I’m very lucky to have such sweet friends!  Thanks again, Delores!!  Every quilter needs a set of these…sure hope you bought some for yourself?!

Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P

Thought I recognized those jars - good ol' Adams peanut butter. The jars are fabulous for storing all sorts of things.

Just bought a Jar of Adams yesterday for DH...guess I won't recycle it!

Very cute jars!

Everybody knows that jars like that should be filled with CANDY...not buttons. Go out and find some more of those big ol' jars, and fill 'em up with some good stuff!

What a clever idea! And they could store lots of things~ beads, bobbins... :-) Have a happy day yourself!

Wonderful concept, and I was just washing out some glass jars for recycling just a little bit ago... I wonder how small of a jar I can get of that chalk board paint?

Darling idea! Might have to steal it.

Such a clever idea. I do love peanut butter.
