Birds in glass jars

Bird prints in glass jar, via Martha Stewart

I’m not one for stuffed birds…

But how enchanting are these bird prints in glassed jars?

So easy … and avoids the exorbitant cost of framing these days.

If you’re putting antique prints, might be worthwhile to toss in the jars one of those water-sucking little pallets of silica…

Maybe if you’re planning on using vintage prints, make a high quality photocopy of them… that way you still keep your precious prints out of the destructive elements of moisture and sun…

I also think this could work with ANY prints.

The Woman behind the Blog

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
