What else can you make out of old jars? tea light candle holders, hanging lanterns, terrariums, shelf organizers… Indeed, the possibilities are endless! Remember these recycled jar vases from Old New Again? It takes just a bit of inspiration to find a fabulous new use for old jars. And you don’t even need to scour flea markets to find them. You can start your own collection of jars instead of throwing them away to the junkyard. I found these inspiring photos of old jars turned into something beautiful from weheartit.

First, we are a husband (Rick) and wife team (me, Liz).
We love old things with a fresh spin, like a fresh coat of pretty paint on a dingy wooden box. My mom was an antique dealer when I was a child, and my dad has been a full-time artist ever since I can remember, really. He’s made a nice living off his art, so I learned a lot about both creating and how to sell, too. So maybe I mixed the “antique dealer” with the “artist” and that’s how I got “old with new”? Hmmm…. I just figured that out!

In line with the theme, these stunning fashion photos are taken from the Sixth Annual White Cashmere Collection 2009, for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, sponsored by Cashmere Tissue Rolls. The event was participated in by 15 top fashion designers from Canada, using yes, you’ve guessed it . . . tissue paper. From the looks on the runway, you’ll never say, it’s just tissue paper. I am excited to see what the 2010 collection would present. Here are some of my favorite looks:
