On another note…..


I inherited this from my mom…… I don’t really want to use it as a spice rack. Any other suggestions? Right now, it’s living on my kitchen counter. One of the jars has my mom’s collection of pressed pennies in it. Sweet Pea and I have determined to keep adding to it. But what do I put in the other 4 jars?

Hugs,
Melinda

  1. Melinda ~ my thoughts on the spice rack…how about using the jars for sewing/quilting items (?) knowing how much your mom loved quilting! You could use one jar for pins, one jar for buttons, extra bobbins in another *just a thought* and you could still keep the “pressed pennies” in the jar in honor of your mom’s collection!! ‘Happy Quilting’ from Barb

  2. Hi Melinda, I was also going to suggest buttons for one jar – perhaps antique buttons or old wooden thread spools. Keep the pressed pennies – are these the type you get at tourist attractions? The ones you pay $1 for – LOL.

  3. Gail, yeah… except here they are normally $.51. I don’t know about the buttons. I was sort of wanting this to be functional instead of decorative. I’ll think about it though.Hugs,Melinda

  4. Mom kept some of her jewelry in them. That’s an option.You could also use them for extra “office” type things like paper clips, safety pins, push pins, stamps, etc.
