I LOVE SUMMER! Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted! From pool parties, Vacation Bible School, and sleepovers at Sophie’s, it’s been C-R-A-Z-Y! So, my BFF and I were out walking last night and picked a few wildflowers. We brought them inside and I couldn’t find a vase ANYWHERE. But my mom had JUST rinsed out the jar we keep pickles in and I had a BRILLIANT idea! She was just going to throw it in the recycling bin – so she said I could use it! I rinsed it out really well (no one wants flowers that smell like pickles…gross) Then I peeled the label off of the outside and scrubbed it until it was sparkling clean. Then, Sophie and I went to my ribbon scrap pile and found a pieces in my favorite color: PINK. Mom had some burlap fabric and it was a great combo! We tied a piece around it, filled the jar with water, and put our wildflowers in it. Umm… SO PRETTY! I love flowers, don’t you?? Send me some pics of crafts that you and your friends like to do!
