As is often the case when I am excited about something it doesn't always turn out in real life the way it does in my head. For instance, my mother in law had some glass vases that she didn't need and I wanted to use them for some storage. Unfortunately I imagined that everything would fit inside the glass vases that were about 1.5 gallons too small. At least free vases don't come with buyers remorse and I'm sure I will find some other use for them soon :)
What I need is something like this two gallon glass jar from Crate & Barrell.
I'm just waiting for the time to get all these items picked up and put into the closet. All I can say is that I'm really glad our clothes are hanging up and not draped all over the dining room anymore :)
