needleorts.com has this funny definition of an Ort on their site...
Do you have an Ort jar? This was my very first one and I eventually filled it completely up. It's about 12-inches high and now sits like a piece of art on a bookshelf in my house.
My precious daughter bought me a new Ort jar for Christmas a couple of years ago and it's more than two feet tall! It's curvy and beautiful on it's own but it's becoming even more beautiful as it gets filled with orts of all types and colors. I love it so much!
