Love Mason Jars

Standard

I’d say I have a slight addiction to Mason Jars and when there is a new shape or new color or new size – I kinda need them! LOL

How stinkin’ cute are these “fluted” mason jars! I found them at my grocery store, King Soopers. Perfect for flowers or cute drinks! Ahhhh they make me happy, lol.

Pantry DONE!

Standard

I found some old pictures of the “now” pantry when it was the original mudroom.  They’re a little blurry/grainy but you can get the idea.

You can see the linoleum flooring and under the shelf is where the washer and dryer were.

The room is about 8’x8′.  That door was the original back door before I did the addition.  That’s the same door that I used for “new” red pantry door.

Here is the “after”.  Finally got all the beadboard up and trimmed out.

Yep – that was the back door!

 

Palisade Peach Jam

Standard

I haven’t had the opportunity to make Palisade Peach Jam in a couple of years – but this is one of my favorite things to do, make jam!  The peaches are big and sweet!

I just use the Certo Liquid Pectin recipe that comes in the box.  It actually took 6 large peaches to yield the 4 cups of fruit I needed. Recipe says it’ll make 8 cups but I always get more?  This batch made 10 cups.  There is nothing like homemade peach jam on pancakes or waffles! Yum

Solar Gazing Ball

Standard

One of my girlfriends had one of these in her yard and I just had to have a couple.  They’re solar gazing balls and I found them at Lowes.

They are like crackled glass and it does have a green tinge to the glass but they are don’t have this yellow glow to them.  Here you go . . . (had to get closer)

Absolutely gorgeous!!! I think I want moreeeeeee! LOL
