TGIF umbrella




You know how it is, when you use a jar of sauce when you are cooking, and it's just too nice a shape to throw in the recycling? It happens to me so often. I decided to make a jar for all those bits of change that get left in various piles around the house and tie it in with TGIF's umbrella theme, and make it "for a rainy day" money.
I stamped the glass with a crackle stamp, added a lock stamp to the lid (to cover up the "best before date".
All stamps are by Inka
