This is the apothecary jar that I previously did a post about, where I experimented with silver leaf to see if I could give it the look of mercury glass.
Then, just a week or so ago, I found two more smaller ones that I was able to finish off my packet of silver leaf with.
Here they are all together. The tallest one measures 13" high.
I swear, I really wasn't looking for any more of them, but today I found the grandaddy of apothecary jars. This one measures 2 feet tall. For comparison purposes, here is a shot of all of them together.
Even though I'm fresh out of silver leaf, when I saw it sitting on the shelf today for a mere $7.99, I simply had to bring it home with me. What is it about these jars that makes me want to own so many of them? And when Henri asks me what I'm going to do with them, I don't even have a good answer other than extend my open hand their way and reply "tada!"
