Old Glass

My husband is very sentimental and keeps everything I don't sneak into the trash. These blue glass jars were my hubby's grandmothers and I was going to donate them and even had them in the boxes when I noticed they were back in the garage. Hmmm. Then one day I noticed they were in the house and this is what he did with them.



He paired them with some of his glass insulators.


Maybe I could put TV snacks in them. Pretzels and peanuts, M&Ms. Wouldn't even have to walk to kitchen that way.

He has accessorized with the flag banner we can never find a place for. I think I like it here for now.

I'm so glad he saved them from being donated. I too love items passed from one generation to the next. It's just a bonus that they look so great!

Oh, this is so funny! Your hubby wanted to keep his grannies little blue glass canisters. I think they're cute and he did a good job setting up a vignette.
Be a sweetie,

I'd say your husband should get to keep those beautiful blue glass jars, especially since her did such a nice vignette with them. Wow!

Wow. A husband that can create vignettes? Please, oh please, don't tell me he can cook, too. That would just totally make me have to go back to bed to process!

I think it's neat that he has those. Quit trying to throw them away!

They would be a perfct hiding place for M&M's.

Thanks for the cute link to Alphabet Soup!

A+

And A++++++++ for your husband and his vignette.

I love that he went to the effort to make a vignette with his grandmother's blue glass. He did a great job. Some of the really old blue glass can be quite valuable. I don't know anything about your pieces. I have one old blue glass bottle that belonged to my grandmother that appraised at $150.00 quite a few years ago. You might want to check it out. Thank you for sharing your hubby's talents with us. Cherry Kay
