Spice Jars

Guess what I also found at the same place where I found the earlier porcelain jars? These really pretty mini jars that would be perfect to put your spices in (unfortunately, these were not on clearance :o( ). Asian spices rarely come in nice pretty bottles unlike their western counterpart so these would be perfect to fill in those cumin, cardamoms, star anise, cloves, cinnamon stick, etc.

And me being me, plain white jars just will not do! :o) So out came the decals again. And the result..

See those tiny roses right on top? It took a whole lot of patience to apply those as it's a curved surface and took quite a bit of strategic cuts to make it look presentable. And it doesn't help when you have a toddler hanging on to your legs asking "whatchoo doin, mama?" every two seconds whilst you are applying them :o) (patience, patience).

Don't they look much better now?

Now that I have a complete set, it made a happy start to the new year :o) (aren't I easy to please? hehe) . I've been asked by quite a few colleagues and friends on whether I'm willing to sell these. Unfortunately, I'm running out of decals (and those came all the way from the US). However, with what I have left I can just about make one other set of 5 spice jars to sell. Each jar measures 2 inches in diameter and is about 4 inches high. To be fair, this is what I'll do: E-mail me at, state your offer (don't forget to leave your name and contact deatils!), price starts at RM29.90 for a set of 5 jars (trust me, this is below cost price :o)) [excluding postage] and the highest offer wins! And since I have a grand total of maybe.. ehem.. 2 readers of my blog, you would have a very good chance :o). Offers close on midnight, 9 January 2009 and the winner will be announced on 10 January 2009. Oh yes, I'll be adding a little rose porcelain spoon to the set as a bonus!

Salam Maal Hijrah and Happy New Year

from my family to yours!

May this year bring peace, happiness and good health.
