A Different Purpose

Things are made every day for a specific purpose, but sometimes that thing finds it has a different calling. It isn’t like the others. It wants something more, something better out of life.

Hairbow Jar

Then every now and then, a shopper sees this something yearning for something more and gives it a chance. Take this cookie jar for instance. It didn’t want to be just a cookie jar. Nope. It wanted something more exciting and I gave it that chance.

Our new bow holder

It now has a purpose of holding my daughter’s beautiful hair bows, hair clips, and headbands (aka hair candy).

Look at all the pretties!

Sometimes the little one gets caught with her hand in the hair candy jar too!


Not all hair clips made it into the jar though. These are a baby present soon to be given away. But maybe, if they are lucky, one day they too will find a home in a hair bow jar.

    That is such a cute idea. Now I need to find a cookie jar as cute as yours. But can I ask you a question? Where did you get the elastics? I used to buy that kind all the time (I have 3 girls so we go through them quite fast) but now I can’t find them anywhere!!!

    I never thought of using a vitamin box to store all those tiny rubber bands that otherwise get all over my bathroom. What a simple, easy fix!

    “Where did you get the elastics?”
    I bought these at Walmart. They are my favorite by far. I used to buy some from the Dollar Store, but these are much more heavy duty.

    They actually came in the box like that, but it’s a great idea :)

    This is such a cute and nice way to organize hair accessories! I would love to make one and give it as a present for the upcoming baby shower of my friend! Thanks. =)
