When does aesthetics give up it's rights and give in to practicality?
That is a question I have had to mull over in my little brain lately.
You see, I just couldn't leave my canning jars be canning jars. I had to "cutify" my home canned relish, salsa, and tomatoes by adding tags and burlap toppers.
It was fun while it lasted, but something had to go. I had neglected to remember that burlap sheds. Badly.
After several weeks of opening my pantry to find burlap dust on the shelves, I knew it was time to take action.
I removed the burlap covers and left the hairbands and labels attached.
Function over form. I knew better - I really did - I just wanted to try something different.
The new hair bands and labels by themselves are working great. Now my shelves are clean and tidy again.
All better, now.
