I talked about my spice drawer not long ago, and how much I love putting all my pantry and baking supplies in pretty containers.  Of course, I also want the containers to be practical. I love the little baking powder containers, as they have great lids and a metal lip inside for scraping off each teaspoonful.  So, each time I buy one at the store, I save it for my spices that get a lot of use, like baking soda and salt.

To make them cute, I just cover them with my favorite polka dot wrapping paper and clear Con-Tact paper.  Simply measure out the wrapping paper to cover the canister and cut out.  Do the same with the Con-Tact paper, cutting it just a little bit wider to overlap the paper and hold it in place.

When baking, if the canister gets messy, you can simply wipe it off with a warm soapy cloth and it looks like new again.

I also add a colorful label to the top, cut to fit just inside the recessed circle, and attach with double-stick tape.



In 2002, I was dreaming of creating a fun and happy little event to sell my vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, I held my first event in my neighbor's barn along with a handful of friends. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today The Farm Chicks Vintage & Handmade Fair fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces packed with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best event of its kind in the USA. I describe it as the best weekend of the year!
