~I love Ball/Mason Jars~

I love Ball Jars~Especially blue ones! When I saw something similar to this in Romantic Country Magazine I knew I had to make one for myself! You need one insert from an old canner and 7 canning jars to fit into the spots.Leave the lid off the middle one to put seasonal flowers in! I just love this look. It cost me $16 to make this! I hope it inspires you to make something you love...
Have a great night...

~Fall mantle reveal~

Well-I am finely happy with my Fall mantle! It 
happened yesterday when Matt found the perfect mirror at a yard sale for $2.
It was a dark slate color that would have been lost against the stone if left that color.
So-when I woke from my afternoon nap he had painted it white and mounted it for me!

Along with our other yard sale finds I am so happy with it. I have 2 antique books next to the urn with the fall flowers that I love, The Pilgrims's Progress from 1895 and Poems of Edgar Allen Poe from 1914.
All together this mantle display cost less than $40!!(and that's including the Longaberger basket!) And it makes me smile when I walk into the living room~priceless! What does your mantle look like for fall?? Share with me!!
Enjoy the rest of  your Sunday...
