This one isn’t related to perfumes! I get excited when I find really cool resources and suppliers, and when it’s relevant and wouldn’t totally ruin my secret ingredients, I like to share as well. This post is not paid/sponsored/what-have-you in any way.
I discovered Darby Smart when I was planning our wedding. We were making homemade lemonade tea and I wanted some kind of cute vintage bottles to present it in. I ended up ordering a dozen of these vintage glass milk bottles.
You do have to order them individually, but the price is comparable to 12-packs you’d find on Amazon or the like. In that case, you might wonder, why bother buying them on Darby Smart instead of Amazon? Well, because Darby Smart has a lot of other crafty items for purchase, but there are also project kits, and a lot of DIY ideas for you to browse!
For example, one I really dig is this kintsugi kit. Kintsugi is a Japanese art of repairing broken items (usually dishes or pottery) with gold, to make it even more beautiful. Personally, I’d probably go around purposely breaking dishes in order to use this, which likely renders the whole idea/intent of kintsugi moot… alas.
From bottles to tins to wood slices, paints, and ink, there are a whole lot of raw materials and supplies. And if you need inspiration for what to do with all those neat individual things, there’s so many ideas for you to check out!
I am really wanting some of those decoupage milk bottles!
