Glass. It’s a pretty amazing substance.

And just plain pretty.  I am becoming more and more enamored with crystal-clear and shiny-clean glass.  Even rinsing a salsa jar to toss into the recycle bin, I am a little impressed with the beauty of it, the simple glass jar.  I know.  I’m weird.  But you are reading me so you must be weird, too.

Yay for all of us becoming more aware of wastefulness and how to avoid it.  Yay for re-purposing, re-using, re-cycling.  Yay for shiny glaass catching the light and then letting it go to dance around the room.

And yay for pretty jars that can serve as flower vases – hanging bud vessels – candle holders – tea glasses – penny holders – marble holders – bug collections – vacation souvenirs showcases – photo displayers – art supply organizers – speciman vials – mixed  paints containers – light catchers – lemonade flasks – flour cannisters – grandbebe treasure receptacles – utensil storage – bath salts bottles – and all sorts of other fun stuff!

I mean, how sweet is this?  From Young House Love.
