So, since I wanted to play so bad....

THE cutest thing on MY page is that adorable little boy
in the photo...
My *little man* is just about to turn 18 and he is 
I know a lot of you saw this
jar of chains
Actually, I liked the look so much, the jar is still full of......chain.
I really wanted something really cool to go in these little jars...
but the tea lights were HANDY...and so.....
O, yeah...and I just made 
so they were handy, too...
Mr. Sweet said I could have the jar with the candles..
he was taking over the
and wanted me to know that the jar was a shade on the SMALLISH size.
OK, Mr. Sweet...

You what? Dip peanut butter cookies in chocolate? Why have I never heard of this before? Let's see, it's 9:25 and I was planning an early bedtime. Now I can hardly think for planning a little peanut butter love. Wonder if peanut butter on a cracker with some chocolate chips on top would work...

As always, I enjoy seeing your vignettes... Love that you include family photos in them, too.

That little boy is adorable...turning 18, or not! "Mr. Sweet" seems like he's an easy going, good sport kinda' guy. You two enjoy those cookies...I'm sure he'll share!
I have a collection of antique blue canning jars in the window on the lower level.They add great color to the room, especially when the sun shines through them! You have some creative ideas with them on your mantel!!! Have a great weekend.

I love old glass jars..and the blue ones are my very favorite! :D

Sue @ Not the Good Scissors! said...

I like the tea lights in the jar.

For me, when I have cookies it has to be with milk! Nothing else will do and if I don't have any milk I simply will not have any cookies. No kidding. And there is nothing worse then enjoying a cookie or two, or four and I go to the fridge and THERE IS NO MILK!! I am sure even the neighbors can hear the gasp!

Have a great weekend!

xoxo, Sue

This is so funny. I am a jar collector and a few in my family think I'm nuts. they are so handy to store my pasta, sugar, flour, nuts, raisin to name a few.
But, I do not have a BLUE jar; gotta find one now. Wishing you and your guy Happy Anniversary.

Mr. Sweet would have had a fight on his hands if I'd been there, for those! lol Never thought of dipping peanut butter cookies in chocolate, terrific idea:-) Love your old canning jars, I have a couple as well but they're on a closet shelf...I'd best smarten up and go get them out of there and find something to put in them and display them!! xoxo

You find a cute use for everything!
Wouldn't the jar with chains be such a cute gift for a convict? :)

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Everything you do is cute, BJ. Love the jars used as bookends, and I might have to steal that idea! Thank you for the inspiration. I'm with Mr. Sweet - I'll take the one with cookies, and you can have the one with candles. Thank you for linking to Favorite Things. laurie
