New jar labels-2104- Organizing my Kitchen!

Do you love my new chalkboard tags on my vintage jars?
The shelves above my fridge have always been a handy place to hold odds and ends. Know it is even better. I bought these vintage jars a few years ago at Brimfield antiques and I love them. 

When I was preparing muffin batter about a year ago,  I thought I had added sugar to the batter but it was salt. Listen, I have a salt addition but even I could not eat those salty muffins!

I have been careful since then.  I think these labels will help! I found them at Target while Christmas shopping. Similar ones can be found online but for me the red border around the black label, meant for Christmas, are perfect for my kitchen where red abounds! 

Now I am looking  for  places to put  labels, think it is addicting.I used actual chalk to write on the labels and I love the effect but there is also a pen that writes like chalk and is permanent. 

 Humpty Dumpty, the stuffed guy I made, sits on the middle shelf. It was made by first sewing a egg from cloth and then drawing on it with black marker. Kind of a an egg thing going on in my kitchen. 
Come back for my more organizing ideas from my homestead. 
I love my labels and no more mistaking ingredients!

Thank you for visiting the Homestead,

Love your jars Karen... a friend gave me some of those labels for my birthday and I love them too!... I have similar jars, although mine are not vintage... just don't eat Krumpet's treats!... xoxo Julie Marie PS Tessy's jar says "Tessy's Treats" so I don't mistake them for mine!!!... xoxo Julie Marie

Hi Karen. New follower here. I love your jars. I'd love for you to come and share them at Every Room In The House @ A Joyful Cottage. It's a month-long blog party, and this month we're partying in The Kitchen. Your post would fit right in, and inspire all of us who desperately need to organize in the kitchen. :) Here's the link:
