~A Surprise In The Mail~

I got a surprise in the mail from our blogging friend…Jann of the blog “Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson”. She knew how much I loved mason jars and she gifted me her mason jar banner.


I hung it in our dining room yesterday on my old quilt and heard a crashing sound…as the banner was flying off the quilt. Turns out that the banner was too heavy to be pinned to the quilt. One of the pins went flying and I had to hurry and find it before the Yorkie girls did. The pin landed in one of the chairs in my living room!! Couldn’t believe that it flew that far.

So I took all the ribbons off of the banner…which helped with getting rid of some of the weight off the quilt. I really like the ribbons and I’m going to try to put some of them back on.


Thank you Jann…for this wonderful gift.

Guess it is no surprise to anyone that reads my blog that I love mason jars. I have a mason jar chandelier in my dining room.


And a mason jar print that lights up in my kitchen.


And a small mason jar print the lights up in my living room.


And a cupboard with some mason jars on display.


And of course…the mason jar necklaces that I make.


Which seeing these necklaces…makes me realize that I have to get busy and start making some new jewelry pieces for my upcoming 2 shows..one in September and one in October. So if you can’t find me…I’ll be in my crafting/sewing room making jewelry.

Until next time…..Blessings from me to you.
