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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
