ginger jar

use no. 2 for a ginger jar

imageMy friend Geanette found this little ginger jar somewhere (I forgot to ask where) and she thought of me (and my blue collecting) and gave it to me.  She dropped it off at my front door on Christmas Eve with a batch of warm brownies … a very unexpected Christmas present.

How nice!

I thought hard about how to use it, and then decided to turn it in to a little planter.  I put some charcoal in the bottom to provide a little drainage.  Then I added potting mix and an indoor plant that I know doesn’t mind wet feet (or roots as it may be).

Cute hey?  Thanks so much Geanette!

ginger jar reinvented

This little ginger jar sits on my kitchen shelf and adds a touch of blue to my mostly white space.  And, I also use it as an incense burner.  I keep it filled with rice, and then just open the lid and poke a stick of incense in when I need it.  The rice keeps the stick standing tall.

I recently bought some new incense at Ishka, and asked for some advice on what was good.  So in addition to my usual sandalwood I also have coconut incense which really is lovely … but I never would have bought it without the recommendation.
