Style your Starches in Apothecary Jars

I have always loved beautiful Apothecary Jars. I don’t know what it is about them, but they are just so pretty. I never knew what to store in them until I watched an episode of Brothers & Sisters that featured Nora’s amazing kitchen and her beautiful display of Apothecary Jars by her window.

Since I found a purpose for them, I had been hunting for these jars everywhere and just recently I managed to find two beautiful glass Apothecary Jars.

I use one of the jars to store pasta and the smaller one store rice, and they both sit beautifully on my kitchen counter. The only problem is that I have to keep them fairly full to look pretty, but at least I’ll never run out of rice or pasta!

These gorgeous jars can be used to store more than just pasta and rice. For example you could store sweets in them too – although this would not work well in my house, and they would most defintely look empty far too quickly! Not to mention, I’d need a whole new wardrobe, a size up!

If you have space in your bathroom, Apothecary Jars also make great containers to store your bathroom goodies such as; bath salts, cotton wool, even soaps. And for the makeup junkie, nail polishes, lipglosses and perfume samples would look beautiful in these.

I won’t lie, these Apothecary Jars are pretty hard to find locally, so if you see one, make sure you snap it up and get an extra one just in case! I found mine at Party Themes (Peter Road, Durban) and they look very similar to Nora’s ones, just smaller.
