The forecast today...heavy rain.
be most grateful for the rain we are receiving. I can't imagine what all they are facing yesterday

Despite the rain, I offer you this sunny, pretty coffee greeting for your
Friday morning, and a simple, quick, and easy project I did recently.
I really like the new look of the jars of baby food, from the
I share this, just in case you ever need favors for a dinner, or a small gift,
or you just want to add a touch of color to an area in your home.
I washed the empty jars and dried them thoroughly.
I mixed some Elmer's glue with a bit of water. I took a small paint brush and

I placed a battery operated votive into each jar, and liked the look it produced through the
glitter covered glass.
Recycling can be fun, if one has a few extra minutes and has access to the idea fields of
Pinterest, to glean ideas from.
Thank you for stopping by today! Your kind comments are always a blessing to me.
