Ball, Kerr, Atlas, Knox...Gangs all here!

First, name that movie. If you're a girl, you should know that reformed quotation from that one movie....such a good chick flick!

Secondly, we had a little bit of ice in the area a few weeks ago which meant no class, no commuting, and staying in my p.j.'s. perfect.

Well I got bored and had wanted to take a picture of the loads of jars I brought home from my great-grandmother's house. I literally did not make a dent in her collection. I just couldn't keep everyone waiting on me as I sifted through all the jars.

So again, I just wanted to take a picture. a picture.

But she had some really great different brands....

But I was really bored and needed to get out of the house, even if for only a few minutes.

So then it went into a few more minutes....But aren't these jars pretty?!

Oopsies. The crazy wind blew this one away. And you can see that not much is going on outside...

I think we're channeling a little Andy Goldsworthy now, kind of. But I thought it needed more much ice and snow! and so bored.

Keep an eye out because now I have to find places and purpose for each of these jars.

Some will go to my sisters and some will find their places with me.

I'm finding a lot of inspiring ideas so I'll be sure to share them with you soon!

And then...

Right when my hands and face were going numb, the flower that was in the middle flew off into pieces all the way from the front yard to the back. I'm sure my neighbor thought I looked ridiculous running around the house after pieces of pink...

A good day.

Loren!! These are some of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen. Maybe because they are Mammaws old rusty jars but washed clean and in the snow...I see some correlation! How beautiful is it that our hearts can be rusty, sinful and dirty but washed clean and bright as snow because of a beautiful Savior who died for us. oh my! These picture are so perfect. I miss mammaw but love that she lives with Jesus in her TRUE home. I love that something so simple as glass jars with rusty lids can be such a wonderful treat to my eyes and heart. Love you sister. Thank you for sharing....and I am going to be needing to get these pictures to use to decorate some walls in my house.
Love mel
