Needing, Wanting, Loving: A Ginger Jar Collection

My two favorite colors to use together in decor are blue and white. Calming, clean, and reminiscent of coastal life, they make a happy addition to any room.  It's no surprise then that I love a good grouping of ginger jars.  It creates such a pretty vignette!










You may remember that I recently posted about purchasing my first 2 ginger jars in Kansas City when I was visiting Lindsay.  I decided to display them right in my entryway:


Well... they just so happened to be perfect for my client's foyer and have been lovingly passed on.  That seems to happen a lot! So once again, I'm ginger jar-less!  It's okay, I'm happy to continue hunting for the perfect mix.  Found for the Home had a great variety when I visited their store here in Houston a few weeks ago.  Maybe this is where I'll begin my new collection?


Do you share my love of ginger jars??

  4. LOVE. I recently put together a brand presentation, and - as I was reviewing it and watching slides of my work - I realized I have more than a slight obsession with blue. Naturally, that wasn't a surprise ... but I hadn't quite seen it all together like that before!!!

  8. I'm ever so slowly growing my ginger jar collection. They're literally in every single room in my house. No home should be without. :)

  9. Sam, you are young enough to begin collecting the "real" ones, vintage or real antiques. You can find them sometimes on Ebay. For me, this was the only way to go, and every birthday, Christmas, etc. I would get a new piece from a family member so all of them are even more treasured. I even love the bit of age which shows on them. That 1st vignette is so me, without the fluffy stuff underneath. :)'s

  14. I share your love, but they're about impossible to find here! Maybe someday I'll move to a place where I can find some (or just suck it up and buy some online). :-)
