Sadly, this will be our last year for making the float at home .... kind of a very sad and hollow feeling. I am trying not to focus or think about it too much, but to just enjoy the ride with Dinesh and his friends before they start the next chapter in their lives.

Hope everyone had a great weekend ~ it was somewhat of a busy one for us, but I was still able to quickly paint some mason jars. I have to say, mason jars are one of my favorites, whether it is painting them or using them for candles or anything else ~ they are just lots of fun to work with. So, here's what I was busy painting over the weekend getting ready for July 4th.
One of my favorite is this vintage jar I created a few years back as a candle ......... when lit, it is really beautiful.
Whenever I am up in PA I pick as many jars as I can at yard sales, and I have so many of them that Mr. Craft built me a few shelves to store them all. Several of them are vintage jars which of course are my favorite ~ like these.
I usually don't paint any of the really old ones, but rather collect them and place them around the house just for their simple beauty.

Last week I finished a little bench I picked up at a yard sale last summer for $10.
A cute little idea using a head board and foot board from a twin bed. It sat in the garage for an entire year ......... finally, I took it out, gave it a new coat of paint and added it to our little dining table at the lake.

Had a great Memorial Day weekend at the lake with the family ......... Katryna is also back from college and I guess you can say summer has officially started and I am one happy mom. This also means yard sales and craft fairs - what more does one need!
Recently I posted a picture of a bunch of windows on FB. A friend up in PA was renovating a house and was able to save a few for me. Different sizes, some with four & six panes, some of them are pretty worn which makes them even more unique ~ all in all a great Christmas gift in April.

Spring is also the start of all the craft festivals, flea markets and garage sales ~ and I for one cannot wait to stroll through these over the next few months. Our little town of Damascus is having its first Art Festival on May 16 ~ super excited to be a part of it as a vendor to benefit the Damascus Lion's Club, Thor Teams, Inc and Faith Connections, all to help and encourage disadvantaged youth to succeed.
Well, here's to a great spring and summer to all. Until next time ...........
