Space Savers

You can bring spring indoors by reusing old spice bottles, tomato sauce jars, and for that matter any type of clean recycled jar.  I prefer to leave the labels in tack.   Now simply go out into your yard and cut an assortment of spring flowers and even foliage plants.  If you don"t have a big selection of plants in your yard, then go to your local florist and chose flowers that look as though grandma picked them from her garden. An assortment of sweet peas, forsythia, quince, tulips, daffodils, etc. will do the trick.
Just mix-n-match the different varieties of flowers in the different size jars and arranged with the tallest glass jars in the back and the shortest ones toward the front.  Your space will dictate how many jars and bottles to use. 
Just one reused jar with fresh flowers also makes for a perfect gift.  This is what I bring when I go to a dinner party instead of a bottle of wine.
