More Painted Jars... An Obsession



Okay, so I'm just a tiny bit obsessed with my new favourite thing.....

It all started a few weeks ago when I tried painting my own jars... you can read about it here .

Now.... I can't stop!!!! Help! Seriously!!! 

Every time I see a jar I grab it and pour paint into it!!! 

In fact I have a few more drying as we speak! Don't judge me....

 Anyway.... I made 4 more over the weekend.... 

I ran out of turqouise, so I mixed what I had with white and it dried a very milky blue - Lurve it! 

Oh and note the orangy/ tangerine jar.... more love!

Again, I embellished with what I had in my craft drawers and made sure the jars were cohesive with the last batch, ie beachy...

  
 Here is my little collection.....
 
 
  These 2 are living on the computer desk


A temporary home on a shelf for these 3 until I decide where to display them. 



 The others are displayed in my box shelf

So??? Do you love them as much as I do? 

Please say yes.....

  12. Natalie, you have inspired me to start a little jar collection. Mr. B was just asking me why I was saving them. I told him, because a blogger friend is painting them and they are beautiful. He knows not to even say a word. Just goes with the flow when it comes to my blogging obsessions. So I hope you know that my answer is YES, I LOVE THEM!!!
