Update: My Blue Mason Jar

12.09.2009

Hey there! While decorating for the holidays I finally found a spot for my lucky #13 blue Ball mason jar I got this September at the Brimfield Fair. Figured I'd show you guys where he ended up.

When we first bought and put together our huge entertainment center from JC Penney, I just kinda threw anything in there to fill it up. The bookshelf to the right of the tv ended up looking like this. Kinda blah.

Here's the much better after:

When I took down the fall mantel to put up the holiday mantel, I was left not knowing what to do with this great photograph I purchased this summer on our trip to Prince Edward Island. I decided it would look good over here on the entertainment center in place of the lantern I had there. But it needed to be a bit taller....insert books in the right color and it was looking much better. Then I remembered my blue jar and how I didn't know where to put it. Bingo! Now this side of the EC has a more coordinated color scheme that really plays off the pale green walls in here:)

  1. I like how much more personal the second vignette is. You can tell it's been chosen with care and I like that some of the items are a bit aged.

  2. Very pretty. Love how the blues and greens and yellows bounce around from shelf to shelf.

    What did you think of Prince Edward Island? I've been wanting to go there...it looks so beautiful. ~Lisa
