Recently I bought an absolutely beautiful antique spice rack from a local vintage findings store and I decided to make a kind of spooky apothecary for spices!

I bought a bunch of small jars with cork lids and some chemistry flasks as the containers...

Then I took some watercolour tape and fed it through my typewriter. I have a collection of small vintage border stamps that I used to frame the text!

I cut them out, wet the back of the tape with a sponge and voila 

I would also like to thank my mother for tirelessly growing, harvesting, drying and saving many of my spices.

sorry for my crappy camera phone.

This is just too awesome. Smiley I don't usually use many spices currently but this is just too awesome of an idea to not attempt to copy, at the very least because it looks amazing.

haha, that is awesome! I would feel like I was making some sort of a witches potion every time I cooked something.

I love personal swaps, I currently need art (paintings or something to hang on a wall) but I'd be up for anything.

What a fun idea! All my spices stay stashed in a cabinet.  Embarrassed I always have to dig to find what I want- this looks so much better! Does the rest of your kitchen have a similar mad scientist/apothecary theme?! That would be the coolest kitchen EVAH!!!  Grin

I love it, especially with the mini skull included!  I would be so tempted to write things like 'eye of newt' and 'powdered unicorn horn' on the labels. Wink

That's a really unique and cute way to store your spices and be decorative at the same time. :-)

I really love this! And that your mother grew the spices is even better. So fresh! My man and I searched several antique shops to find the perfect spice rack just for our McCormick spices. This is so much better! Great job.

there is an amazing random stuff store in toronto called "active surplus" I bought a lot of the bottles there. But I guess I'm always on the lookout for them! the beakers are standard science equipment, so I'm sure they wouldn't be hard to find, if you are looking to make your own!

That is a super cool and have considered creating one of my own as I always seem to have herbs and spices laying around in bags looking bad this is a cool creative way to organize the things I use often!
