Just like gran had.

We love how handmade glass has that off-kilter lean with flecks and bubbles dotting the surface. It’s glass that has personality. It’s got feelings. And we have a lot of feelings about these large vintage pickling jars, light-blue-toned beauties that have put in years of pickling work and are now in need of a good retirement home. Imagine this: You could fill them up with broad bunches of pale-pink peonies, or happily nodding bouquets of ranunculus. Or you could create a multi-layered terrarium with stone, sand and succulents. Perhaps you have a collection of vintage wooden spatulas in need of a similarly-aged container. And hey, you could always go full-on gran, fill it to the brim with peppermint candies and leave it by the door.
