Happy Wednesday! Can I tell you what a pleasure it is to be on summer vacation? I’ve been busy running errands, picking paint samples, weeding, and spreading mulch. I so much enjoy being home and having time to get things accomplished around the house. Flag Day and the Fourth of July will soon arrive meaning it is time for patriotic decorating. I’m starting my patriotic decorating with my kitchen table where I put together a vintage Ball jar centerpiece.
My Ball jars belonged to both of my grandmothers and were used for years and years. I used an antique bread board that my mom gave me for the base of my centerpiece and added four glass insulators as accents.
The Ball jar in the front center is the newest, it has a special logo commemorating the 1976 bicentennial.
The jars and insulators really catch the morning sunlight and look so pretty. My plan is to add flowers to the center three jars, I just haven’t done it yet. What I would like to use is Queen Anne’s Lace. I’ll have to go for a ride to find some on a country road.
I’m lucky that my family saved theses jars. Think of the garden grown produce that was saved year after year using these jars.
My patriotic table runner is a quick DIY made with two flour sack towels purchased from Walmart.
I’m looking forward to doing more patriotic decorating later this week and this weekend.
