FROGS AND JARS

On Saturday hubby and I went road tripping and stopped at a couple of antique shops. I found some flower frogs and a couple of jars.

Here are the flower frogs I found. Once I found the frogs, I then began looking for bases that would work with the frogs. The two frogs towards the left back with scissors in them had built in bases, so to speak. The rest of the frogs were like the two flat ones in front. I found some bases that seem to work quite well for the other frogs.

Here are what some of them look like with scissors in them. It's sad to say but this is not even all of my scissors collection. I am afraid I have a terrible collection sickness!!!

This picture has the addition of two jars I found. Sixty dollars later and I have quite a collection I am thinking some of my stitching buds with be wanting some of these frogs. That is why I purchased so many.
Finally just a pic of the jars. Not sure what I will be doing with them, but I did put my extra fobs in the one jar for now.

Love your flower frogs and jars. I have not seen any of these in Singapore. Maybe, I did not look hard enough, lol. What a scissors collection!

Hugs,

Love all the flower frogs, especially the white one, it looks tall enough for scissor fobs to hang nicely over the edge.

I love the flower frogs too! I was in an antique mall on saturday and found 2 frogs. I didn't purchase but I will be going back for them. I did the same thing about wondering what kind of base I would use; guess I'll find something suitable along the way

Thank you for the awesome idea! I had never seen these before, and probably would never have known what they were for. I found a frog at the local antique store today, and think I may go back and get a couple more!

I'd never even heard of flower frogs before now! I'm gonna have to see if I can find one. I like your idea better than using a spoon rack. Awesome scissor collection!

Oh I am so jealous of your scissors collection! I only have one pair (and recently bought one that I am still waiting to be delivered).
