SPRING BLUES by Rust: Vintage Inspired Design

I can never get enough of these old blue mason jars.
(I know there are lots of reproduction jars out there nowadays, but their colors just don't compare to these vintage ones).
I took a trip to a local pottery supply store where I found all the supplies to turn some in to liquid candle holders.
The great thing about these is that you can use them outside and the wind doesn't blow them out.
Happy day!

The Case of the Missing VINTAGE PURPLE BOTTLE!

Don't you just love colored vintage bottles?
My parents have quite a collection of them.....
They really can take a licking and keep on ticking (he,he).....
Three years ago I took these pictures up at our cabin on a beautiful summer day.
To my horror, in the midst of the picture taking, a huge wave passed by
and these lovely purple bottles fell off the table, onto the wharf, and one of them went rolling into the depths of the lake!

 Being absolutely horrified I neglected to mention this little incident to my parents! ;)
Well...my dad has just informed me that a very dirty bottle has been found 10 feet in the lake buried in sand.  Cleaned up it turns out to be a purple ink bottle embossed Carter’s. On the base is a patent date of 1899. 
He says it's exactly like one he "used to have"!!!

Oh me, oh my....."what tangled webs we weave!"
Happy day!

Here's an easy project for left over pieces of burlap....

Simply cut your piece of  burlap to fit over a piece of printer paper,
then tape it to the piece of paper and feed it through your printer...
I was amazed at how well the graphic printed on to the burlap.  My
husband was amazed (actually distraught) that I put burlap through the printer!  Not
sure that I'll be doing that again anytime soon ;)...
Happy day!
