I love getting and receiving home made gifts during the holiday season anytime, and if you’re still scrounging to get a thoughtful gift together here’s a quick easy one that anyone can do.

 

First, to make this gift you’ll need a cute little jar. One of my favorites are these green Ball Jars, you can find them here.

Those are a little big, so if you’d rather make stocking stuffer size gifts, check out these.

Don’t have time to make fancy pinterest worthy labels?  That’s ok, I’ve got you covered.  These are the cutest little chalk board labels and you can just write right on them, too.

Now for the salt mixing.

Notes
  1. I use and recommend dōTERRA essential oils for my projects. They are therapeutic grade oils that I'm confident won't have adverse reactions on my skin like other oils have in the past. If you'd like to learn more about these oils you can read here. Or shoot me an email. I will happily help get you set up. :)

Dining Room Update

Sunday, June 28th, 2009

So, today we went to Jo-ann’s fabric and purchased some fabric and new cushions for the chairs. We’ve finished two chairs so far, and possibly might finish the other four either tonight or tomorrow. I’ve taken a few different pictures to show the old fabric and the new fabric. The old cushions were absolutely frightening. I have no idea what mystery material was used, could have been wool, cotton, or asbestos for all I know. I took the chairs outside to disasemble just in case anything weird happened.

I did some research online last night, and it appears that my set might be an English Regency style set. They were popular in the 1920’s-40’s. I assume mine is not worth the thousands that those online were, and probably in mint condition it wouldn’t be worth that much either. Doesn’t matter though, I love it.

I chose a mild pattern mostly because the busy pattern that was on there before gave me a headache. Who cares if they’re sitting on a boquet of flowers, right? Anyway, I had to include the picture of my husband who refuses to grow up, or read the lables that bags were not toys.
