Thrifty Thursdays - Easy Beach Souvenir

 
Summers are the time for travel and trips to the beach!  What better way to remember those beautiful summer memories then bottle them up (literally!).  I used a spice jar (from World Market for $1 - though you can find them anywhere)  filled it with sand and dressed it up with seam binding and a vintage label. 
 
Now everytime I look at the jar I remember our trip to Rhode Island and how Dustin and his brother Zach stared at me like I was crazy while I ran into the ocean (it was September): 
Here is another idea for you - why not frame a postcard from your vacation - or even better a VINTAGE postcard!  And where might you find vintage postcards..... hmmm..... perhaps in my Etsy Shop??
