how much is that bottle in the window...

oh how grateful i am to be finished cleaning for the day. to be lying in bed with my husband after seeing this very naughty and completely inappropriate movie at our local movie theater. this is my reward for an entire day of "chores". i spent the day making our house feel like a home. early morning grocery shopping. finding homes and hiding places for all my treasures. making labels for anything and everything. arranging for the cable guy to set up our wireless. scouring and scrubbing mason jars, bottles, and vials. promptly filling them with sequins, buttons, dried flowers, seeds, flour, cornmeal, sugar, and salt. and one lucky bottle even gets to house my palmolive soap. 

needless to say i didn't exactly get around to sweeping, dusting, or laundry. and i'm light years away from being able to hang items on the wall... but i think i am making progress. either way, at the end of the day i get to fall asleep next to one handsome man. can't complain...

I love the look of those vintage bottles!

P.S. You didn't mention whether you actually liked bruno or not. I absolutely hated it!

i'm so glad to see someone else putting things in jars-- i'm pretty sure my last roommate thought i was nuts when i started storing my cheerios in mason jars!

bruno was not exactly my favorite movie. i love movies like the hangover, wedding crashers, superbad, etc. total guilty pleasure! however, this was a bit too raunchy and inappropriate for my taste.

Absolutely love the jars and bottles. I like to tie ribbons around the littler jars and use them for sipping lemonade.

Love your blog. It's great.
