A masking tape project

So project might be a slight exaggeration as it was a two minute job, but on Saturday I awoke with the urge to make something beautiful, which not surprisingly for me coincided with having a long to-do list of mundane tasks. Oh, how I procrastinate.

As a quick fix, I treated myself to a small bunch of ranunculus and decorated this white beaker {this one is from Muji} with gold and silver masking tape. It works perfectly on any smooth surface. I've been eating expensive yogurt from my local lunch deli, just so I can collect a supply of small ceramic and glass small yogurt pots. My colleagues can't understand why I would buy yogurt just for the pot. I'm hoping you do...

That looks great! I'm always looking for ways to re-use pretty jars and bottles. People think I'm a nut for soaping off spaghetti jar labels all the time, but they're super useful!

This looks gorgeous! I recently finished a jar of jam and the shape is just beautiful so it's currently sat on my desk waiting for it to be given a new lease of life. Maybe a vase is exactly what it could turn into!

Totally understand!

This is really sweet! I normally just stick a candle in old jars but this is much more pretty.

I get you!

Tres Chic and Magnifique! I have some pastel tape and a small cutie ramekin... now I have a great idea too!

I had a yoghurt at Toulouse airport in the summer, wiped the terracotta pot out and put it in my handbag to bring home. I was quite glad we'd already gone through security so I didn't have to explain it!

Glad I'm not the only one who buys based on the pot or bottle!

Jeneveve, the French ones are the best! I'm still gutted that I didn't take home some cute terracotta pots I ate yogurt from on the ferry to France this summer!

So pretty :) And a girl who bought jars of fluff, just so I could have the jars... I understand! ;)

Makes complete sense to me. Just hadn't thought of it yet...

I get it completely. It is the same reason I bought supermarket parfait like a fiend in Paris, just so I could bring home a dozen diminutive glass jars.
