Someone admired my shelves ... and then asked if they are just a static display of unchanging items.
Nope, they are an extension of the food cupboard and contain the most frequently used foodstuffs in this house. Hence the contents of the jars may appear to be unchanged, but they are filled, emptied and are re-filled as we use what is in each and every one of them.
Occasionally the jars are refilled with something slightly different but usually we have the same foodstuffs all the time, perhaps now and then there's white rice instead of brown rice or a coconutty granola instead of a fruity one. Sometimes I decant down a jar size if we have used most of something up to leave my bigger jar available for re-use for a similar product.
But mostly the shelves stay similar looking as over the years we have refined them to the things that we use regularly and that are handy and decorative to have around. After all who doesn't love to see food in glass jars 😃
What the question did do is make me wonder how the shelves have evolved over the six years we have been here ... so I went back through my photos to have a look.
Completely empty in November 2013 ... just before we moved in.
We had spent the previous couple of months decorating and getting the house ready for us to live in.
I can only find this snippet for 2016.
No photo for 2018 ... I cannot believe I didn't take one shot of the shelves they seem to be photographed almost as much as the dogs 🤣🤣
You can play Spot the Difference with the last two 😃
And that's what you get when you ask me a questions about something I've photographed!!
