One of My Favorite Things - Canning Jars
I love canning jars - new, old, clear, blue, I love them all! We are fortunate enough to live in an area where the World's Longest Yard Sale happens every August. Last year, I snagged some old, blue jars for display in our dining area. I know it sounds silly, but these jars make me happy. I just love looking at them and imagine the journey they made to get to my home. When Studio Calico came out with a patterned paper with jars on it, the scrappy stars were smiling on me. This weeks Sunday Sketch was all the inspiration I needed to make a layout about my pretty jars.
Here are a few close-ups of the cherished treasures.
This year I hope to acquire a few more of these beauties. It's fun to scrap "things" we love, I hope many years from now when my children see jars like this, they will remember lots of love and laughter at our kitchen table.
