C’mon Spring!!!! We’re Waiting….

And waiting and waiting…


I don’t know where you live, but in my neck of the woods it’s still gray, dark and cold and rainy.  It’s been a long winter and though the calendar says April 11th, it’s still not spring- like. 

So I bought myself some flowers and put them in a pretty blue vintage Mason jar to add some cheer along with the drear(y) weather.



So if you read my last post, you saw the Mason Jar Soap Dispenser…well, guess what?  I found out (while perusing www.SouthernHospitality.com ) that Ball is selling new mason jars with the vintage blue hue!!!!

You can find the link here:  http://freshpreserving.com/products/heritage_collection.aspx

So Cool!!!!

I love the way they look even with grocery store flowers tucked in.




And if you look closely at this picture…my sweet pup is napping in the background.

  What else is there to do on a dreary day?

Mason Jar Soap Dispenser



Who Doesn’t Love a Great Mason Jar?


I found these beauties at an estate sale and had to snap them up!



I love the turquoise hue to them and the metal lid on the one on the left made me so happy!

Here are the supplies you’ll need:

  • Mason jars, of course
  • Hammer and Nail
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Soap pump (I just used an old one I had).



Pound a hole into the lid with your hammer and nail.  I actually used an old jar lid for this one because I didn’t

want to ruin the metal gray one that actually came with the jar…


With your needle-nose pliers, make the hole bigger, but just big enough so your pump will fit snugly. .

Go slow and be careful because once it’s too big, you can’t go back.



All that is left now is to screw on your lid and add some soap!  This seriously took about 10 minutes to complete and I think it came out so cute


Now go share the Mason Jar Love with the World!
