This Is Life On the Edge

I found an amazing deal on spice jars at the Crate & Barrel outlet in Dallas, and I bought 2 dozen. (I need to go back for more!)

I went from this:



To this:



I have one daring, exciting life, don't you think, when a Saturday night consists of organizing the spices?

but they look so cute with their cute little lids and labels! I say it was well worth your time :)

NIce! Those spice jars are lovely.

I have so many organization projects that need doing... and do I ever get around to them? Nah!

A little too much of that garam masala and cumin seeds-then you will truly be living life on the edge!!

Mustard seeds, garam masala and cumin! you are going Indian :)

That is truly a thing of beauty. I'm a little jealous.

PS. Your box went in the mail on Friday, but I cheaped out and sent it snail mail. You should get it in 5-7 days.

I love containers, Anne Marie. So I understand the thrill. =) Wow, you use some exotic spices!

Oh my goodness, we must be on the same wavelength, because I redid my spices about a month ago. AND wrote up a blog post about it which I have posted yet, for lack of one picture.
My only problem was that I'd gotten a lot of those big, cheap spices that you can get at Big Lots, and my new jars didn't hold that much. But I love everything being nice and neat!
Let's hear it for Garam Masala! Love that stuff!
