Labels and Glass Jars are for Lovers

Labels are an addiction for some.  I'm very much new to this secret club of the OCD. I have had a long time love affair with glass jars. There's something to be said about placing everything in clear, orderly containers. There's a literal sense of transparency, of clarity. There's a reminder of what's plentiful and what dwindles. The glass is either half empty or half full. [or in the case of my jars of pasta, always empty since well, pasta is delicious.] The mundane are made beautiful. The colors, the textures of simple foods are made worthy of note in their raw state.
