Happy Weekend: Vintage Sweet Jars

It never ceases to amaze me the places or times at which I find myself inspired by colour. I've long admired great design and packaging - you only need to look at some of my Pinterest boards to see that - but when I saw this tempting collection of vintage-style, glass sweet jars all I kept spotting were the lovely hues. From the festive feel of the red and white duos to the pink and green jewel-like tones, it's safe to say Mr. Bazaar was feeling inspired. Now we've all reached the weekend, I think it's fair to say we deserve to grab a swizzle stick, put our feet up and dive into our favourite magazines. What do you say, folks?! Have a lovely weekend!


  1. I love the use of vintage jars to display colourful candy!

    Have a great weekend Will!

    ps. I'm trying to plan a trip out to London next spring to visit my sister and family. I would love to meet up with you!

  2. Hello Will!
    Seeing all the candy displayed like this brings back great memories when my grandmother would have candy out for her guest around the holiday time. I hope your off to a great start to your weekend.

  3. I'm a sucker for pretty packaging too - these are gorgeous! Hope you have a wonderful weekend Will xx

  4. Everytime I bounce by here it makes me want to throw on a bright purple scarf and splash paint on things! Really enjoying visiting each week...
