Jelly Jars for Button Drawers...


I was working on a special project the other day...
Sweet 16 and Adorable 13 helped me clean up~
before the cats could get in and klutz around.
I can't seem to keep our furry friends out of my studio.
Sneaky kitties open the screen door...
Hide inside while I'm blocking the screen door...
I need one place in our home without paws & hair!



These tiny jam jars fit nicely in shallow drawers!
Wee little juice glasses work well, too.
The buttons stay dust (and cat hair) free...
Easy to see...
Easy to take out and put away.
They're old~ I find them in thrift shops, garage sales etc.


I have washed & pressed a new supply of linens...
The baby dresses are ON TOP!
That means they're next...
Building up confidence...
I know they'll be sweet...
My pen and ink will behave... no mistakes!
(giggle)

Hope your weekend is off to a great start!

I think anything you attempt to do with them will be wonderful! I am a big fan and love your work-you are an inspiration to me..I'm just beginning to "play" with watercolors and an still a wee bit intimidated :-)

Lovely linens, I will watch with interest what becomes of them. the buttons are good too, that's a good idea putting them in little jars.

What a splendid stash of buttons and linens! As a youngster I would have wanted to sort and resort the buttons in their jars.
