I have a jar in my room that I have filled with memories, birthday candles, tickets from concerts, cinemas, planes and theatre, party invites, champagne corks, pretty clothing labels other little odds and ends.
I got this idea from the jar my parents have filled with match boxes.
|Full of matches.|
|Pretty labels from clothes.|
|21 candles and restaurant business card.|
|Postcard from my boyfriend from Vegas.|
I searched high and low for the perfect jar. I wanted it to be large and clear and have a lid so no dust would get in.
When looking at jars like this online, I searched for sweet jars, large candle jars, terrariums, lanterns, large food jars, you name it I Googled it. I looked on eBay, in kitchen shops, antique shops the list goes on. Anything I found that was even remotely appropriate, was grossly over priced. Most were around the £100 mark the cheapest was starting at £60 and although I really wanted a large jar I did not want it for that much!
Until... Tkmaxx. They have an excellent range of home-ware and after this jar find I will always have a look in just in case there is something great, as their stock changes often.
This jar that I found was £16.99! That is, from a now large jar expert. A Bargain.
I am really happy with the way the jar has turned out as it allows me to display memories instead of having them in a box tucked away or thrown away.
