A Pretty Little Windowsill...

    First of all I want to say that I may or may not need to attend a ten step program for my addiction to antique stores & mason jars. But that's beside the point, I found some amazing deals this week!! I wanted to share a couple of my great finds with you...

These great Mason Jars that are now making my kitchen windowsill a little prettier...

My window in my kitchen still is bare, but I feel like these mason jars add a little charm. I got these mason jars for a steal & they are the ones with the glass lids and metal clamps. Too cute.

I know, I know... fake flowers, I'm sure I will be changing them often out with real flowers, but for now these will do.

O, hey there I am.. smile & wave! My poor windows need some curtains.. add that to the list of projects please..

Okay.. enough of the mason jars, obsessed much?

The next little thing I got is something I stare at every time I go into this little antique store by my house, I just never felt the need for it. Well after a few OCD breakdowns from magazines and books laying around, I finally felt the need....

I love & if you remember my HUTCH & ENTRY TABLE you know that this goes very well with them. It's cute & simple & cures my ocd of magazines laying around.

It's too cute. I feel like I say that a lot, but it really is.. there is no better word for it.

My current book: Water for Elephants.. Have any of you read this book? I am really loving it so far.. I just wish I had more time to actually sit and read a book.. ahh wouldn't that be nice?

Hope you loved seeing a couple of my antique finds from this week.. I had a few other buys, but they are currently under construction & will be blogged about on a later date. Remember to head on over to Liz Marie Blog's Facebook page & become a fan. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. I know mine will be pretty fun, it's my hubby's 24th birthday tomorrow & I really spoiled him this year.. yet another blog post to come.. Thanks for stopping by!!

  14. Although I haven't been following you but for a day or two, you have obviously made an impression. Because when I saw this tutorial, I thought of you. Not sure if you have seen this before or not (probably have), but I saw this idea in a Pottery Barn magazine and fell in love. And the tutorial makes it so achievable and awesome!

    Memories in the Making

  21. I have a magazine rack similar to yours. I purchased it from the thrift store and I want to paint or decoupage it because it's currently a yucky brown color. I really like what yours look like, so I might have to borrow the idea. :)

  22. I love your ideas for canning jars!

    I love them too and have adopted them {various sizes} as our every day drinking glasses. The husband loves the large quart size one as he gets a man size cup of water and I love them for the kids as they are sturdier than regular glass... and pretty much everyone that sees them loves the look. Fun all around!
