favorite things

I've mentioned searching garage sales for reference objects for my paintings but some of my favorite props are items I use every day. Here is an example: my empty Kate Somerville Nourish Daily Moisturizer jar. I love this stuff, use it every day, and when the moisturizer is gone I remove the pump-insert jar from inside and save the blue/green translucent outer jar.  The image below shows how I used the empty jar in a painting.
