For The Love Of Aqua!

Its no secret, I'm obsessed with vintage blue mason jars. Just check out my mason jar board on Pinterest. The only problem was, I couldn't find any under the perfect conditions. When I would find some beautiful vintage blue mason jars for a great price, the shipping costs were outrageous. When I found a mason jar with an economical shipping price, it was gone before I could blink an eye! I was so determined to find just one mason jar, I looked almost everyday. I even searched on craigslist! I finally asked my peeps on FB, to see if anyone had seen any mason jars for a great price or if they knew where I might find them. My sweet aunt responded and told me she had some my great grandmother gave her that she would give to me. I was so over-the-moon excited, I could hardly contain myself! I was so honored she would share these gorgeous mason jars with me, I just couldn't believe it!

Feast your eyes on these beauties...

The jars didn't have lids, so I found these original zinc and milk glass vintage mason jar lids on Ebay for around $9. There were 12 of them.
I have so many fun projects in mind for these guys! I can't wait!! :)

This week my chevron rug finally came! I was a little taken aback by the actual color of the rug. This was the color advertised online:
And this is what it looked like when I pulled mine out of the box:

Very aqua right? Its so funny how different the picture was online! I realize this often happens, you can never really be too sure of a color when looking at a picture online. I think the color is growing on me, plus, if I want to exchange it for the grey version, I have to wait until December! I guess the rug is popular because I had this one on preorder for several weeks! The rug definitely doesn't match my chevron pillows I made so what I'm wondering....keep or not to keep....that is the question....

Here's a little sneak peek of the pillows:

I might just have to move them up to my bedroom. :)

Happy Crafting! :)
