One of my New Year's resolutions is to clean out my studio and either use what I have or list it in my ETSY vintage shop. So I've been cleaning out drawers and going through my inventory and stumbled upon these....

A box full of old Avon Sachet Jars and English Jam Jars.

I remember finding them at a flea market last summer and thought they were too sweet to pass up.

While in the process of preparing more wire for my newest Inspiration Holders,  the thought came to me that I might transform these into petite photo holders too.


I call them "Sweet Scentiments" (A little play on words here)....

I think they would be a sweet way to present a small token to a special someone...

....or in a studio/work space to store small supplies along with an inspirational saying or picture....

....or maybe even to hold a petite tea light candle....

They would make the sweetest favors at a shower or luncheon....

The possibilities are endless!

Soon available in my ETSY shop!
