The Rest Of The Story

Several people commented on the milk glass bottles in the last post that I am using to organize my paintbrushes so I thought I would show you the rest of the story.  I bought this set of vintage spice jars years ago and used them in my kitchen for many years.  When I was on vacation in December I did a long-overdue purge of my spice cabinet.  The tops on the jars had became so corroded that I decided it was time to retire them to the art room.
I soaked off my homemade labels and taped the lids to the underside of the rack to keep the set together.  They work perfectly for organizing my paintbrushes and the set has a second life in the art room.
I have been working on my give-away for the Grow Your Blog party.  If you haven't signed up, there is still time!

I used to collect spice sets. Sold them at a garage sale in the 90's. Glad you found a new use for this set!!

Love your milk glass spice jars no matter how you use them. These sets are getting so hard to find in good condition and they're expensive too!
