Bottles and Jars

I have a thing about storage! I like everything to have it's own home, whether that's a tin, box, jar or bottle! I spend hours putting the kids toys back into the right box or tin, it drives me crazy when the mix up their toys!

I have longed for a larder cupboard for years, and would love one day to have all my jars lined up in a neat row! I recently saw a photo in a magazine of an armoir filled with Jamie Oliver glass storage jars but for the life of me I can't find it to share it with you. I'm sure you home magazine addicts out there will probably know the image I am talking about!

This is what I have 'in real life'!

Not too bad, and my jar collection is getting bigger!

Here is my inspiration for this month - the utility room, from Ideal Home magazine.

However in reality my utility is used as a dumping ground for the recycle, dirty washing, tools to be put away and piles of ironing. Don't think I'll ever achieve that kind of organisation.
However I did today buy two glass bottles to be filled with detergents, I'm getting there!


  1. You are a girl after my own heart!!!

  2. Wish my laundry room could like that too! Im with you on the recycling, wet washing, ironing etc! Love those bottles, I have a clear version of them but where did you get pink ones from???!

  3. Bottles were from my local garden centre but they were 'maxwell williams' glassware at £3.95 each.

  4. Hello,
    I have seen the armoire before, I think. It is gorgeous.I love your laundry sign. I wish I could be so organised though.
