whimsy jar swap

These are the jars I made for Kimberly and Kathy:
I found these very real looking pink roses and had to use them on the jar. I had this mosaic in mind after all.
I filled the jars with:buttons, paper roses, silk roses, handmade crocheted flowers, ribbons, charms, lace, stick pins: I also bought this and this from Heather's shop to include in the jars.
One of my favorite pieces in each of my partners' jars is the yellow rhinestone studded earring.

Before I shipped the whimsy jars off, I wrapped each jar in vintage sheet music to ensure a safe delivery:

  5. Jessica, Your jars are so fanciful. I think I would always keep them just as they are to enjoy. Are the roses real? They are just the perfect touch! Elizabeth
