Halloween Apothecary Jars

Halloween Apothecary Jars..

I made another couple of apothecary jars today.. with the inspiration taken from some that I had seen over on pinterest.

So I now have some Wing of bat and eye of newt to keep the snake oil company :)

Halloween Apothecary

Hi everyone,

I spied these over on Pinterest sometime ago and have been “dying” to try making some ever since… scuse’ the pun ;)

Halloween Apothecary Jars! …How fab are these!


All you need to make one is an old vitamin tub, I will be asking everyone at work tomorrow to save me their old tubs and bottles so I can make some more.. after all Halloween is just around the corner!

A Laugh is a Smile that Bursts

I made some post it note holders in my shed today ..


I made two different kinds, the first one has space for a mini gel pen, I don’t have any yet, so I used a micron pen until I get some..


The second type is an easel post it holder, you can decorate these as elaborate as you wish, I kept my two simple …


I used a wooden frame and painted it white and framed it onto a nice wee saying


I love the sentiment on this one…. A Laugh is a Smile that bursts


That’s me for the night :) as always, thanks for popping round
