My sister-in-law Rachel just posted about spring cleaning her bathroom and I felt serene for a moment looking at her picture of this glass bottles. I seriously don't know what it is about class bottles that make me so incredibly happy. Also glass jars. I keep all of my ingredients in ball jars of varying sizes on open shelving in my small kitchen. I use the shorter modern ball jars for some craft supplies too. The big stuff, like flours, and sugar are kept in glass canisters on the counter. All of my spices are in little glass jars as well. (promise to have pictures in a future post)
Now I just need to streamline to glass bottles in the bathroom like these.
Other glass items on my to buy or repurpose list:
A few of these swing top bottles for carrying around water, or for holding juices. I would love to open my fridge to a set of these with various beverages to choose from to bring to the table, the couch, the bed, or even out. This one is from Brook Farm General Store, but I've seen them at kitchen supply stores, ikea, or even sold with juices in them at some specialty grocers.
Milk bottles in a carrier. I am not sure I love these ones. I found some at a store once, clear with just milk written on them. a bit more modern. I'd love ones with a lid and the carrier is awesome. I'll keep searching and let you know when I find the perfect milk bottle!
Recycled wine bottle glasses. These were found here on etsy. I've seen them in beautiful pink colors too. I plan to make a set from San Pellegrino or Martinelli's bottles since I don't drink wine. The small individual sized bottles would make lovely juice tumblers I think. Green is so beautiful. I also just love a plain bottle with a flower in it. Simple, but so lovely.
Can you think of anything else to use glass bottles for? When I have a laundry room some day, I"m sure a lot of my stuff will be put into glass canisters jars or bottles. I may be becoming ocd, but I want everything in a glass bottle or a basket! Rows of the same thing. That's what it is. That's what I love. mmm.
