Summer Crafting

I’ve had the opportunity to scratch my creative itch with some summer crafting

I took some vintage jars/glasses

filled them part way up with dried split peas

made some chalkboard tags secured with jute

home 039

popped in some candles and called it


home 040

I’m loving them all lined up in a row

here they are in my sale display…

home 018

they add just a touch of color and are still so natural and green!

I’ve also made some mini magnet boards and jewel magnets

Great in the kitchen for holding notes or recipes!

{perhaps if I can get my rear in gear -
I’ll show you a tutorial on these babies}

mmmm easy, fun and functional
