Anchorware Everywhere

We're always finding creative uses of our ware on Facebook, blogs and Etsy. This time we've stumbled upon the lovely works created by Treasure Again.

Well the time changed, and now its dark out before you're ready to leave the outdoors! We've found the perfect fall outdoor accessory to light the night for you.

A big huge thank you goes out to Treasure Again, for taking the time to chat with us and continuing to find inspiring ways to use our ware.

Wondering how you can use the Pumpkin Jar around your house? Take some tips from the artist of Treasure Again herself, "We have used them for Halloween decorations in the past years, simply by putting items in the Pumpkin Jar, and setting them out for display. Also, for our Halloween parties, we have served jello, or many other foods in it, on the party table. I think I even used the glass pumpkin in a Halloween party spooky display, making it look like there were body part or eyeballs floating in the jar. I have also just added a short string of lights in the jar, to add glow to a display."

A whole line up of these little pumpkins on a buffet table full of fall delights would surely impress at Thanksgiving.

To get yourself a a plain Pumpkin Jar or six, be sure to check out our online store!

Sweet & Sudsy

Posted by CR on Friday, September 17th, 2010

We received word that milk and cookeez uses our jars to make and sell their beautiful products! We were so pleased that we thought we'd share some pictures of the jars in action!

milk and cookeez sells adorable bath and body treats that are hand made and resemble delightful treats.

They use only Essential oils, natural oils, and Phthalate free cosmetic fragrances.   They also do their best to be green, using recycled packaging and non-disposable products for manufacturing.

They just recently celebrated their 2nd birthday! Congrats to such a sweet company!

Tammy "The Head Cookee" told me all about how she uses Anchorware!

"I use The Heritage Jars to hold my Bath and Body Products.
  I also use them in my retail store display to hold my Soapopz.
 I also love how when a customer removes the jar lid, the fragrance of the soap envelops them (It’s a great marketing tool).
" - Tammy

I use them in my workspace (Heritage and the Apothecary jars) to hold my ingredients and supplies. - Tammy

Your Home Floral Style

Posted by Bloomtastic Florists on Thursday, August 12th, 2010

Every home has a style, it’s very own personality that needs to be showcased!  Indulge your home’s persona  by tailoring the flower arrangements to suit.  Below are five home styles and the perfect arrangements for each.    


Americana Country

This style has become a phenomenon in it’s own right. Motifs include artifacts from the past - such as quilts, galvanized metal bowls and wooden crates. The result is comfort that is easy and inviting. Woven baskets or simple vases of mixed spring flowers (yarrow, wild roses, scabiosa, heather) fit perfectly on a coffee table or kitchen counter. Cut flowers, blooming plants, herbs, wreaths and swags with that farm-fresh look are a natural extension of this homespun décor with their fresh-picked-from-the-garden appeal.        

Casual Chic

Casual living lifestyles focus on the simple pleasures of life. The decor includes furniture of light pine, natural woods, bleached oak or a white-washed painted finish with fabrics of linen and cotton in neutral tones. Because these homes are designed for "stress busting," flowers provide nature's balancing formula. The right match might include flowering and green plants (like cyclamen, kalanchoe, pothos or ivy) casually grouped, or flowers (such as sunflowers, daisies, hydrangea, delphinium or tulips) placed in a clear glass vase, pitcher or piece of pottery.

This home has formal architecture with impressive front doors, foyers and individually decorated rooms. Design elements include classic furnishings and antiques with elegant fabrics of brocade, silk and tapestry. Traditional arrangements call for a mixture of flowers (roses, gladiola, iris, carnations, lilies or snapdragons, to name a few) and accents such as dried fruit and foliage. Crystal, brass, silver or porcelain containers are ideal for the classic floral centerpiece.

Sleek and trendy, the modern home calls for clean lines, smooth surfaces and form. Elegant fabrics, colorful silks, gauze or leather accent steel, glass and other man-made materials. Bold, exotic flowers (anthuriums, heliconia, callas, orchids) with strong lines work well to complement this home's clean, open spaces. To complete the dramatic look, flowers are best displayed in glass vases, decorative pottery and metallic containers with pewter or stainless steel finishes.

Velvets, satins, chintz, lace and organza create a feeling of softness and romance in the Victorian home. Pastel colors or soft tone-on-tone prints are used to delight the senses. Fragrant flowers (roses, spray roses, peonies, lavender, gardenias, freesia) in pale peach, lavender, pink, yellow and cream conjure images of romance and sensuality. All of these delicious colors glow in lovely, romantic vases of clear glass, crystal and silver.
