Change of Scenery

I am a big fan of picture frames.

Just sayin'.

I'm also a big fan of displaying pictures in an extraordinary way.

I've been known to put pictures behind old windows and hang them on the wall.  Many times.  As evidenced here and in many of my other blog posts (under the windows or craft or project tabs on the side.) 

About a month ago, I posted this picture...
Since I have alot of aqua jars, and alot of pictures, this looked like a good idea to me. 
Original as a matter of fact.

Now, you could totally embellish these jars to your liking by adding a ribbon around the top, or twine, or raffia.  But I kinda like the plainness of the ones above.

I finally got around to this project this past weekend.  I know, it took me this long...but at least I finally did it.  Party because I had a whole day at home with no where to go, and partly because a couple of weeks ago I found the PERFECT pictures in our safe in the closet.  I honestly forgot I had them.

I rounded up all the aqua jars I had, and some clear ones with a square bottom because I thought they just looked cool.
I put them on top of the bookcase because for one, it's a good place to display them where everyone will see them, and two, one of the pictures was this...
my mom and her two sisters, posed of course, reading a book nonetheless.  One of my favorite pictures.  (mom is in the middle)

I put pictures of my husband as a little boy,
pictures of me as a little girl with my grandpa,
and pictures of my dad with his dad when he was little.
I think they look great.  In all honesty, I probably shoulda cleaned out the jars a little better before I displayed them.  I'll get right on it.  But I think overall, I like the look. 
They are in the perfect place.


  1. Love them. I think you must have been the one that I saw do this before. I did one for Christmas that way. I have a few jars and what a great way to display them. I love the blue ones the best. Thanks again.

  2. Great idea! Looks very pretty and nostalgic. What can't one do with a mason jar?!? They are the best!!!

  3. Love, love, love this idea! And the old aqua jars really add something to the old black and white photos....

  4. That's a really neat idea! I have missed reading your posts.


Thanks for commenting...I love reading what you all have to say!
