As I browse through the stores, I am starting to see a lot of mason jars stocked up.  There may be some of you who do canning ( I wish I knew how) but there are so many other uses for mason jars I thought I share a few.  Also maybe give some inspiration to some fall decorations!

I have had a book with a ton of these great mason Jar mixes and plan every year on making them for teachers, friends and family.  Here are a ton of great recipes!

YUMMMMM!  Check out these Mason Jar Cakes!

I am now hungry!  Enjoy!!!!!

I had one of these made of my oldest son when he was just a baby, never could find someone else to do my other two children.  I just love silhouettes, they are timeless and make such a huge statement.  Here are just a few ideas on how to display your silhouettes.

Hot New Fall Colors August 10, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — jackmat1 @ 2:26 am

With the fall season vastly approaching, it is hard to not get excited and maybe change out our decor a bit!

I like purple and plum but had not thought much of it paired with chocolate.  This is supposed to be a hot trend for fall.  After looking at some of the pictures I thought it could be something I could do!

Starting to like the colors together – What about you!

Thanks for looking!
