My husband does not share in the enthusiasm, but he's a good sport about my glass hoarding as long as I keep it contained to a couple areas.
Have you seen the amazing distressed glasses at Anderson and Grant??? It was the inspiration for a few of the more fun glass pieces in my collection. Her page also has a fantastic tutorial to follow.

|Home-made Chalkpaint in some beige color from my paint hoard...yes, glass jars and paint "collector"|
The jars above include: rum jug, spagetti jar, honey jar, maple syrup jar, and other fun finds. On occasion I have been known to buy a certain brand of sauce based on my attraction to the jar verses its contents.
|is it me, or does this kinda look like worms?|
|luckily the finished product didn't turn out looking like worms, lol|
The jars aren't sealed yet in case I want to change the color. Day2daysupmom's colorful take on the same idea is also intriguing.
The salt & pepper shakers were sealed, though, with polycrylic. There is an imminent future of grubby hands leaving all manner of sauces and goo on their pretty selves.
|love these made-over dollar store shakers|
A question for other glass hoarders: What do you do with your quirky finds?
