Blessed Easter and Vintage Blue Jars

My sweet dear hubby found some vintage canning jars on Craigslist today.  He had them all sitting on the dining room table when I got home from work & I couldn't resist taking a few pics to share with you.  They positively glowed in the sunlight & cast shadows on the rest of the table.  There are 32 of the beauties.  We have plans for them, but alas that is for another post!  

Have a wonderful Easter Week!  May the true meaning of our Christ's sacrifice and resurrection fill your heart and soul with love and reflection.

Many Blessings to You and Yours,

My Giveaway Win from Angie!

This is another long overdue post, but I wanted to share with you my beautiful cone ornaments I won from Angie at Hopemore Studio blog.

Angie is a real sweetie & sent me two ornaments that she crafted.  The details are lovely & I ended up keeping them out after the holidays!  Go visit Angie & her Etsy shop (which is linked through her blog).

Here are the ornaments she sent me...
 Aren't they adorable?  Thanks so much, Angie!  I love them!

Gifts from a Friend!

This is long overdue, but I would like to share my wonderful gifts from my friend, Laurie at "Laurie's Charming Designs" blog.

If you haven't visited Laurie's blog, you need to!  She is such a talented artist and I am sooo glad I met her through our blogs.  I live in the same town that she used to live in... a little town, mind you.  It is a small world indeed.  I know that if we lived close to each other, we would be more than blogging friends!  Anyway, she makes these lovely charms that she handpaints then puts between glass.  I was beyond happy when she sent me two for Christmas representing my two little angel grand~daughters.  So now I will let the pictures speak for themselves...

And the back of each had a rose...
Aren't they gorgeous?  I hung them on a new vintage~type white tree that my hubby got me for the holidays.  Thank you so much, Laurie!  I will cherish them always.  They are now hanging in my living room on the pegs of my faux mantle.  Have a wonderful day everyone!
