    No pictures, but I reused mine to hold a home made salt scrub that I use in the shower and another to hold some coconut oil for post shower skin care.

    I love the pictures on the containers and use them on the shelf with planted seeds. Once the seedling takes root, I transfer to the garden.

    Mosaic artists are crazy about the containers for holding tile and other tesserae.

    I plan to wrap wire under the top lip and around the container and up to form a "handle" - think Easter basket handle. I plan to fill 1/3 with sand and place a votive candle inside. I can hang these outdoors for our evening garden parties. I plan to purchase inexpensive glass beads to string and hang from the wire top - this should have a chandelier style. The sunlight during daytime should make the colored glass beads sparkle. I would keep the lid to screw on when not burning (to help keep rainwater out). My husband even suggested drilling a small hole on the side of the lid and hanging it from a small wire hook so the lid can hang from the side of the container - this way it wouldn't get lost when removed for lighting/burning the candle.

    LOVE these containers, I use them for my pantry (extra duck sauce or soy sauce packets), put dried herbs from my garden, store seeds for next year, all those dollar store glass gems for crafting, hair ties, coins, nails, screws, extra laundry soap, Q-tips, cotton balls, a fruit tote for snacking while out (like berries, cherries or grapes), hold coins in the car, store home made soaps or lotions, holiday craft items/embellishments. They're great because they are see through. You can also screw the lids onto the bottom of a shelf and they can hang for storage in the garage, laundry, kitchen or craft room.

    Jars have unlimited potential...I use them for leftover nuts, chocolate chips, stray buttons, beads, small samples, making salad dressing, homemade jam, and the list goes on!
