What A Difference A Jar Makes ...

Hello my dear friends,

today I would like to show you two of my previous creations that I have worked on a bit more and I  find that now they are actually finished. I didn't do much more work on them but the little I did do just made them, if you don't mind me saying so gorgeous!! And the main thing I added was a glass jar that looks like a vintage apothecary jar from the Dollar Store!

And these are those two creations ...

 my first one is ...

... my teeny weeny mouse Pea Wee.

I am so in love with this creation! Now Pea Wee has a real home where his little bed sits and he can sleep peacefully and be safe (don't forget I have 2 cats here at home that love playing with little toy mice).

And the second one is ...

... my first Wynken, Blynken and Nod creation.

(sorry about the photos not being so good ~ I took them outside and the sun wasn't doing what I wanted it to do and I am not such a good photographer.

I liked this little boat before but now I think it just perfect in every way and I can't believe that all it took to make these creations perfect was just putting them into a jar.

I had so much joy using these jars I am already thinking about making a few more 'jar creations' but first I need to get to the Dollar Store before all these neat jars sell out! Again once I have a new creation to share I will of course do so here on Todolwen.

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.
