Beautiful creations! Journal in a Jar, brilliant! Thanks for stopping by my blog.
This is lovely! You know I'm drooling over those calendars. What section of the thrift stores do you usually find them in?
I think they were on top of some smaller bookcases. I suppose they'd be wherever they put stationary type items -- that's where I always look anyway!
What stunning blossoms you have created to adorn this remarkable jar!! I know your friend will treasure it!
Thanks for sharing this beauty in Speedy's challenge!!
Fabulous project! Thanks for playing with Speedy's Friends!
