tinkered whimsy jars from elyse

My friend Elyse at Cottage sells tinkered jars in her shop. I have been admiring Elyse's jars since I first saw them months ago. I also admire Elyse's pretty creations and home decor in general. She has a cheerful style. I love her kitchen.

I made a mosaic of some of Elyse's creations here for you to see:
1. tinkered jars, 2. le petit tiroir, 3. baker's twine, 4. pokemon charm, 5. birthday wishes, 6. les petits tiroirs - marguerites jaunes, 7. paris swap, 8. preserves, 9. inspiration box goodies

Elyse sent me two of her pretty jars:
She sells them in her shop here if you would like to see. I was sorry to see that this tinkered jar sold already. I wanted to buy it.

Elyse filled the jars she sent me with other signature treasures like her cottage clothespins and petits tiroirs (French for "the little drawers"):
Elyse lined one of the jars with a cupcake liner from Bake it Pretty.

Here are the "petits tiroirs:" Here is all of what Elyse sent inside of the jars:Thank you, Elyse!

See more petite inspiration boxes (they're matchboxes!) here.
