    My daughter name is Leanna, I love the jars in the wooden box, This is very inspiring because I have a jar project coming up in a few weeks! Not sure what to do but probably will paint them.

      Hi Maria: I look forward to seeing your jars. I haven’t painted jars yet, hopefully I will make something with painted jars for Christmas.

    I love the update!! You are the second person I have seen that has used freezer paper to make a stencil…I am going to have to try that (stencils are normally not my friend, lol) Thanks for sharing at TaDa Thursday!!!

      Thank you Susanne.

      I read that you can use mod podge to hold down your stencil so their are no leaks. On white paint I am pretty sure this would stain it. I found using very tiny amounts of paint at a time really helped.

      Nothing is worse than going for the big ta da moment and having to sand.

    Leanna that is quite a transformation. It went from nice to extraordinary. All the little details you have added, such as the stencil and the burlap make it very special indeed. And white is the perfect backdrop for all the texture you have incorporated into the vignette.

      Hi Mary: Thank you for the kind feedback. I think we have a lot in common, we both enjoy shopping from home first and updating it. Especially now that I have started to blog, I need to come up with new ideas from things I have on hand. Otherwise I would need to add an addition for the collections.

      Hi Pam: I found that little basket at a gift shop and bought it not really knowing where I would use it.

      Thank you for commenting.

    Leanna, the best thing about white is that it works year round. As time goes by, I’m adding more and more white myself. Your box and mason jars are perfect!

    Thank you so much for sharing at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. 🙂
