It's PIN-A-WEEK time dear friends. This week's pin came from some of my favorite bloggers (fellow Richmonders), Sherry and John @Young House Love. I call it the Thanks Jar - every day (or every time) you feel like it, you write down something you're thankful for on a slip of paper and keep them all in the jar until Thanksgiving. Since Michael and I won't be home for Thanksgiving this year, we figured it would be a good tradition to start for the two of us!
here. They finished theirs with an etching cream- which gives the glass a more subtle "thanks" instead of the bold one I did.
First things first, I grabbed a big mason jar from Michael's and taped my printed out "thanks" to it.
So there you have it! Our first ever Thanks Jar!
Oh, and yes, I am fully aware the letters aren't perfect...in fact, it kiiiiind of looks like a child's handwriting. I like it that way though- it gives it a sweet, fully homemade look. (And at a homemade price - about $1.00!)
I'll let you know after Thanksgiving if there were any good "thankful for" slips...
