Fireflies and Mason Jars: A Farewell to Summer with the Grandgirls and Reneabouquets
Hello, Dear Friends! Today is the last day of summer, so I’m saying goodbye with Fireflies and Mason Jars. Before we continue, I should let you know that this post is brought to you by the Grandgirls. They created the projects and took the photographs. How about that?
We spent a lovely summer afternoon playing with these darling Personalized Mason Jars from Reneabouquets. The sweet little kit comes with a nice sized beautiful board mason jar, firefly Printed Beautiful Board and a lovely array of flowers. Even the twine and the metal wire hanger comes in the kit!
Renea will laser cut any name or word that you wish to add to the kit. How special is that? The girls loved arranging their names and the sweet fireflies on the jars. They even made up a story to go along with their individual hangings. What is better than an hour spent talking, creating, laughing and imaging with the little people who make your heart so happy?
The craft was completely stress free, and almost completely mess free. If Nan (that’s ME!) had not opted to add some sequins and glitter glass to the festivities, we would have been completely mess free! But life is short, and girls of all ages love sparkly things. The small mess was really worth it.
Summer to Fall Poem
Several years back, I was inspired to write this little verse about the transition from summer to fall. I share it with my gentle readers as a tribute to the passing of the season.
by Kathy Clement
Gentle asters hug the wall
where Autumn’s sunlight
A purple crown…
a burst of splendor.
in sweet surrender.
I hope you had the chance to make some special summer memories, my friends!
Thanks for stopping by!
