Hi all and happy Friday!
The boys were out of school so they enjoyed a busy day here at home.
While they played outside with their friends, Andy & I talked to the adoption agency (details here).
No worries, we're hoping to add to our family, not subtract from. ;>
After I straightened up the house I was ready for my therapy session...
a quick and easy crafty creation.
I started with my underutilized apothecary jars.
They are kinda small and not very glam.
But, I just couldn't pay PB prices for them.
In all honesty they were 3 for $20 at Big Lots several years ago.
The smallest one bit the dust, so now we're down to two.
While grocery shopping earlier this week I spotted this 69cent bag of split peas.
I loved the color, shape, and price!
I also picked up a bag of candy corn.
Because really, what says fall like candy corn?!
I played around with the layering process until I found what worked.
Once I was happy with the insides, it was time to decorate the outsides.
I added Halloween colored ribbons and black toile.
Around this time all the boys and their friends came inside.
They played twenty questions with me while I snapped pics...
Mrs. Hinson, did you make that?
Oh I love candy corn, can I have some??
Why are you putting candy corn in a jar if we can't eat it???
Wow, you must be really proud of your candy jars... why are you taking pictures of them????
Oh sweet boys, they'll never understand the decorating process! :>
I think they look pretty cute beside my Halloween pic.
What do you think?
Should I save up my pennies for the Pottery Barn version next year?!
God's blessings on your weekend, Sarah :D
