Happy Last Friday of August!
Last Friday I hosted a little luncheon here at my house. I've seen quite a bit of mason jar crafts lately and was inspired to make these as favors for my friends -
I mod-podged vinage pattern instructions onto the jars and embellished them with pearl buttons and ribbon.
I put crushed shells in the bottom and a tea candle. They could also serve as pencil cans in the sewing room or little wild flower vases.
I also worked on my Illustrated Discovery Journal. I started this scrap book over 15 years ago - long before pinterest was even thought of.
This was a companion to Simple Abundance, one of the most transformative books in my life.
Here are some sample pages.
This is where I glue images of things I like, styles I admire, items I'd love to buy or own.
There are no rules or order, just a book of my tastes.
It is very therapeutic to sit with my school supplies and arrange pages.
Lastly, another real classy lunch date with Norma - Bendix Diner. Norma says it has been here for over 60 years. Looks like it too.
Now this is New Jersey Diner and Dive if ever there was one. Look at this picturesque location!
Norma had chili dogs and I had a ruben. We shared the onion rings. The food? Not bad.
I don't know about you, but I'll be thrilled to welcome September tomorrow.
I'm really looking forward to Autumn!
