Last weekend was spent being very creative and resting. I wanted to do things for myself and no one else. I wanted to enjoy myself being just the way I am.
As I have always been trying many different things, I am never afraid to try something not quite appropriate and look silly.
Just look at this once Stilton jar from M&S, I received for doing some advertising before Christmas and it really pleased my husband as he absolutely loves good cheese, and in our both opinion Stilton is the king of cheese.
Anyway, once the cheese was consumed, for me it seemed a great pity to throw away this super lovely oldy worldy jar, but I had no function for it. I kept doing strange things with it, like putting flowers in it, and believe it does not work, I kept moving it around the house, from kitchen to bedroom to bathroom, but that didn't quite work either.
Then I spotted the old jar I used to keep my pencils in and bingo!
I know this very simple use for the dish would not win me an award in interior design, but then neither would my flat (I constantly dream of peeling of that wallpaper!), I do think that I have a perfect function for it, as it will always be on my desk and remind me just how pleasant the rewards can be for working.
I love the jar so much that I had to take a close up picture just to show you what is written on the jar... I seem to myself as some person from 3rd world country who is happy with a bit of ribbon from a set of new towels! Pathetic, but then if it's me, I can deal with it, at least I did not participate in the huge throw away festival after X-mas.
