Do you have a glass obsession?  I wouldn’t say that I’m obsessed with it.  I do think that glass is delightful.  It always catches my eye.  There is something fun about big antique jars, to store things in.  I love it that they now make “antique looking” jars that don’t bear such a hefty price tag too.


You know what?  There is one antique that has evaded my possession all of these years.  I love the old glass churns.  I just can’t make myself pay what they want for them.  I do agree that they are worth it…in most cases.  Maybe one day I will happen upon one that is just meant for me.  😉 Right now, I am treasuring the cake plate that came from Nanny’s house.  I always will.  For some reason she wanted to make sure that it came to live with us.  Maybe she thought that I would keep goodies underneath it.  That makes me smile.


You all already know that I love the antique Ball jars.  I love the clear glass…but the blue are my fave.  Surprised?  I didn’t think so. They just add “happy” to the Farmhouse.  It’s a good thing to love the things that you surround your family with.  I say “love” lightly.  We know that “love” is actually not to be bestowed upon things…but God and others.  I do think that it’s important to try to make a happy home full of peace for your family.  A refuge from this crazy ol’ world?  Yes, please.


I hope that your Monday is good.  I hope that you are inspired by delightful glass.  Home decor doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg…especially if you are into junking.  I’m so glad that I am.

Loving the simple things,
