On one of his recent morning runs, Dave came across three boxes of canning jars which someone had put out by the road as free to a good home. Among the regular canning jars were these three beautiful blue jars - two Ball Perfect Mason jars and one Atlas Strong Shoulder jar.
I adore the aqua blue color of the jars. And they are just right for adding a touch of summer to the dining room table.
I filled the jars with decor sand (note to self: use light brown sugar next time, it's cheaper!) and placed a small, white candle inside each jar. I didn't intend on putting anything around the jars, but the kids eagerly jumped in and started placing shells we had collected from previous trips to Wrightsville Beach on the mat. With the help of little hands, I think it turned out just beautiful!
