Pretty cloakroom apothecary jars

I have had my two larger bird apothecary jars since last November when I ordered them on holiday in Florida from Modern Chic Home. At Christmas they were filled with coconut mushroom candy and chocolate sticks for my Winter Woodland themed dessert table. At Easter they were filled with pretty pink and blue M&M's and hand made chocolate butterflies for my Easter table. The rest of the time they have been carefully stored away. Not anymore! I finally will have a permanent home for them when they are placed on a shelf in my new laundry room and cloakroom.

After much deliberation as to what would look good and be useful in the bird apothecary jars, I filled the tallest one with hand wrapped soaps to match my colour and print theme that I showed you a couple of weeks back. For the shorter one I bought spotty emery boards from Cath Kidston and floral emery boards form Poundland. I like to display items in odd numbers, so I bought a third bird apothecary jar from Primrose & Plum. Choosing what to fill this one with was tricky but eventually I went for my small pink dotty hairbrush and hairbands to match my colour theme. Now I wait patiently for the room to be decorated so I can add my decorative touches!

Have a sweet day!


  1. Ooo! I love these and how you can use them for so many different things. The bird topper is sweet as can be!

  2. Love those colors together, and those little emery boards look almost too pretty to use :)
    I did a post on your laundry posters. Thanks so much for letting me share them.

  3. Hi Torie!
    Thank you so much for sharing our apothecary jars and all of the creative ways to use them on your blog! So glad you are enjoying them, we really appreciate it!

    Best, Julie

  4. How much did it cost you to ship these home if they were from Florida? I was recently on holiday in NY and found sooo many jars I wanted to keep but knew it woudn't fit in my luggage :(

  5. Hi Yviemarie, I carried them as hand luggage! Much to the dismay of my beau!


Thank you for your sweet comments. I love reading them all.
