I stumbled upon Nesting Emily's etsy shop during my regular web browsing and I just love her series of HOLD jars. Each jar is made with porcelain clay, and the lids have an inset piece of vintage lace or a doily set into their tops. She adds splashes of color inside each jar by melting glass in them during the firing process. These would be a perfect addition to hold your notions or any of your special treasures.
