Here's the finished product. Still not too sure of it but do like it better than the Epsom salts and lavender buds.

A few weeks ago I splurged and bought myself this apothecary jar at Pier One. I had been wanting one for a while but could not find one in the shape I liked. What to put in it ? My plan was to turn it into a seasonal display. I had Googled ideas for apothecary jars to see what others were doing and found dozens of options. One that I had never thought of (and was not seasonal), but sounded pretty and "spa like" was to layer Epsom salt and lavender buds. It was not my original plan, but I thought it might look cool. So I bought a gallon of Epsom salt and some lavender buds and layered it in the apothecary jar. I sat it on my bathroom counter and looked at it for a couple of days and was not thrilled with it. The lavender buds were not a pretty purple and the aroma was too strong. So I threw it out since there was no way to effectively get the salt and buds out separately. In the meantime, I had surfed EBay for Easter decorations and found wooden Easter eggs that were painted dark colors and distressed. I also found some "natural" grass on EBay to sit the eggs in.
