    Love, love, love! I also treasure your vintage flour and sugar tins. Thanks for sharing!

      Thank you! You know what? Those aren’t vintage. :) They’re reproductions put out by Martha Stewart years ago when she had her “Martha By Mail” catalog. I got them for Christmas from my in-laws (after circling them in the catalog, of course!).

    These look great–and like a great solution to an organization problem for me. Can you tell me where I can find those kind of labels? (I’m in Oregon, too.)

      The labels are from the Martha Stewart organizing line at Staples. They added this line last spring, I think.

    Great Idea! Look in the bathroom and laundry area and see if there is a need for labels in these areas.

    They would be great in the lid of a kid’s lunchbox for special Mom notes or silly pictures.

    what a great idea! i have some leftover chalkboard paint… and some name tag labels… i think i am going to try and make my own. and then use them as i tackle my pantry. i love when something like this inspires me to get something crossed off my to do list… especially when it makes me look forward to something i have been putting off. thanks jami!

    Great idea! I love your whole cabinet area…so vintage looking. It reminds me of my Grandma’s kitchen. I think I smell something baking ;-)

    I love those labels. I just made some labels today using dry erase paper. I have some chalkboard ones that I am saving for my pantry! Looks great!

      Using dry erase paper is a great idea, too!

    Hi Jami-
    I love your kitchen workroom! Those jars are great lined up there with your vintage canisters and bread box! Nice homey touches.
    I think If I were going to use some of those great stickers (like some mentioned above…I may make some) I’d try labeling in the laundry room or in your craft area.
    Also- I just thought of this, but how about a peg rack, for cooking utensils, aprons, shopping bags, or His and Hers Towel Pegs!

    …I’d say have fun with them; but is seems you already have!!! Pat

    They look great! How well do they erase?
    and where’d you find your jars? love the size.

      The erase a little too well, Kathy! I’ve having to train my husband, Brian, to not smear the labels. :) And I’ve had these jars for years – most came from my MIL, others from the thrift store. They are pickle jars from restaurants (and whatever else they get in this size) so maybe see if any restaurants are recycling them?

    Hi – I’m fairly new to your blog but am really enjoying it. Where did you find the colored lids for your jars in the laundry? Or did you paint them? If so, what kind of paint did you use. I tried house paint but it did not work so well.
