in a good way.
Have you seen these, yet?
Ball Canning Jars, to celebrate their 100th anniversary,
has released a new, blue jar! Yippee!
I don't know about you but I love those old, blue jars!
These were too cute to pass up and were a must to add to my collection.
If you follow me on Instagram, you've already seen this so, my apologies for boring you with them again! But, I had to share!
Pics are clickable.
Even the packaging looks vintage.
I found mine at Lowe's but I'd imagine you can get them about anywhere that sells canning supplies. The price... $9.99 for 6. I only wish they made them in more sizes.
Speaking of collections, I normally house my jars in my craft room but I brought them outside to show you how I use mine and how these new jars compare to the old.
The new jars seem a bit brighter than the old ones but they blend perfectly!
Pretty, don't you think?
As you can see, I've got all kinds of blue jars and they're all
from the Ball Company.
After I took the pics of the canning jars nestled in my fabulous, pink bubble wrap, I had to have a pic wrapped up in it.
What could be more fun than pink bubble wrap?
Nothing. That's what.
I did not get to run in the 10K (6.2 miles) in Richmond. VA. :-( My knee was not any better by the time of the race, so I had to bow out.
My dad however, ran the race and I am so proud of him!
He ran it in 1 hour and 18 minutes!
He said that was not his best time and I think he was a little disappointed,
but I think it's awesome!
I am so proud of him.
He is 77 years young and getting younger every day.
He is an inspiration to me and to so many others as well
for his hard charging run at life!
These pics were taken at various points along the race so they're not the best shots, but you get the idea.
Way to go, Dad! I'm super proud of you!
I hope I look nearly this good at 60, much less 77!
Well, I hope I don't look quite so masculine but you know what I mean, right?
I finished my Margaret Cottam Sampler by La D Da.
She is stitched on 36 count WDW with 2 over 2.
I added two colors of floss to this - a lighter pink by WDW - Red Pear and Caper, also by WDW for the grass and the trees.
The colors originally charted for this just weren't working for me after I started stitching it, so I decided to add some pink, and I love how it turned out.
I also put in a few eyelet stitches for interest.
That's it for today, my friends! I hope you are all doing well and that Spring has finally sprung, where you are.
I have been singing this song all day:
It has indeed been a long, cold, lonely winter.
But finally... "Here Comes the Sun".
Have a listen. It will make you happy.
We miss you, George!
Remember, if nothing else works for you:
Loving all things British, today!
Have a great weekend, my friends and thanks so much for stopping by.
Welcome to my new followers, I'm so glad you're here and I so appreciate you taking a moment to leave me a note.
