My Stars

All you Pottery Barn fans out there may be familiar with these images....they've been in the recent holiday catalogs. They're featuring the glass apothecary jars, which are lovely. But, I was more intrigued by the adorable vintage paper stars inside them. They almost made me want to buy the apothecary jars.....but I know that 1) I don't need them, and 2) when I do need them, I can find them cheaper someplace else.



Anyway, this post is not about the jars, but rather the stars. I heart them. I wanted them as soon as I saw them. But I didn't know how to get them. So I put them out of my mind until I found this blog while checking out a linky party. In case you didn't know, you can find tons of incredible ideas, projects, tutorials , etc. by lurking around linky parties.








Suzanne over at Meridian Road made an adorable star garland out of these sweet little sheet music strips. She gives a quick and easy tutorial here. Since it was storming here over the weekend (winter in ND....go figure!) I decided to try my hand at these.






Cute, yes? They even make my vintage silver candle holders, clock faces and pearl necklace look better, much like the apothecary jars!

























Yes, you're seeing that right. I've only made three. Winter is just getting started here. There will be more storms.....more stars. Thank you Suzanne for the tutorial. And thank you Pottery Barn for the inspiration!
