Still waiting.....

Im still hooked on Pinterest...AND spray paint...so when I saw this idea I had to try it!!! red and polka dots all in one!!! I have been saving jars anyways for my craft club....closer to the holidays we want to make those snow globes that are all over Pinterest...so I had some jars..and of course I have red spray paint...lol...arent they cute?!?! Now I just have to decide what to put it them! Lately I have been using jars for everything...even leftovers in the fridge...I even store pinapple, watermelon...whatever I have....seems such a waste to throw them away. I even thought how cute to fold up little remnents of fabrics...reds, or whatever color theme you decide, and put them inside for a cute gift for a quilter? or buttons?? or candy....or bath salts...the possibilities are endless! We are STILL on baby watch.....Stella and I like to go to the library to pass the time....heres my stack... and Im always on the look out for cute books for Stella....she LOVES books!!! I found this little tin purse, Stella loves Olivia.....and I decided to fill it with goodies...and give it to her when the baby is born... BUT she found it of course...I only let her have one goodie every few days....yesterday she picked the candy straw....when she tasted the sour powder the look on her face was priceless!!!! SO anyways...thats about it....as soon as Jameson is born...after a few days I will be flying up to Seattle to see my precious Ravi Grace...then its back here and off to Hawaii for a week....poor hubby hasnt had a get away for a while...with all these babies being born, and his dads illness and death, we havent had a vacation for a few years...unless you count Vegas...and I DONT!!! lol.... So hopefully today will be the day...keep your fingers crossed!!!!

I'm a jar hoarder too. They look so pretty all freshened up with new paint. I agree.....Vegas is not a vacation. Also, sitting in the middle of a lake fishing in 110 degree days is not my idea of a vacation either, no matter what my husband thinks.

OK, I need to make some jars, too. LOL

Lots of traveling in your very near future - fun!

There is nothing like the anticipation of a new baby. The most wonderful of gifts.

I use jars for everything too. I have some of those giant ones and the lids are kind of dinged up. I think I know what I will do with them now!! Yours are darling!!
Good luck to your daughter. Hoping that all goes just perfect for the baby's birth.

You need to up that penny for goodness sake to at least a nickel. LOLOL I need to talk to Stella!! Tell her your holding out on her.
LOVE those jars. I have a cabinet full too that I've been saving for quite awhile. Great idea.

I love your jars with their polka dot lids. there have been some ideas for do ahead mixes that might be perfect for your jars. But I agree...almost anything would be cute in them. Especially buttons. I love buttons.
Hope your grandbaby comes soon. The waiting to get your hands on them is so hard.
