Vintage Jars Add Charm to Antique Toolbox

The spring weather this year has been about as strange as I can remember. Late snows and cooler-than-normal temperatures caused everything to get a late start. But, despite the odd weather, the volume of blooms on my Knockout roses are thick and intense.

Last week, I showed you the primitive handmade wooden tool box I purchased at an estate sale. For now, I decided to dress it up with some of my vintage jars and roses from my garden. It now sits pretty on my dining room window seat.

I have an eclectic collection of vintage jars and bottles that seemed a perfect pairing for the rustic tool box.

My grandmother had jars similar to the painted pair with flower decals. I was tickled pink to find this distressed pair at an estate sale a couple of years ago. Displaying them brings back such wonderful memories of summer days on my grandparents' farm.

Simple. Sweet. Charming.

Make it a great day!
