white wood and blue mason jars...

what do you get when you put gorgeous blue mason jars




together with cheery sunflowers
(fast climbing the ranks among my favs)







and pop them in a white flower box
(thrift find with a coat of fresh white paint)





= a stunning flower box
(at least I think so!)




here it is in it's every day spot, on our kitchen table, hub of our home
(yes, we like to eat!)



such a bright and cheery welcome!

i would love to find a lower profile box to show off the jars a little better, but this will do for now!


Linking up to these wonderful parties here - check them out
and SNS mason jars over at Funky Junk Interiors

happy days,
Tracey

I love the white box w/ the jars! So cute ! I need to get me some more of those blue jars....I have....one....silly huh?!

I just saw the treasury & recognized your cute little clothes pins right away. Those are so adorable. What a thrill to be in a treasury huh? :) :)

Your blue mason jars are really clever with the sunflowers and placed in the box. It is the perfect summer look. It is like waking up to sunshine everyday.

Welcome back on the block.

Hi Tracey,
I needed to get over here and see you, whew it's been awhile. I might have missed a few posts, so I'm going to look around while I'm here.

I just love the sunflowers in the mason jars and the planter box container is perfect. Yep, I would shabby it up a bit, afterall you are the raggy vintage girl! LOL.

hugs
Sissie

Rebecca said...

Simple and pretty-I alway fill my jars up with flowers and put them in a caddy and take them to shows-and spread the jars around-it really makes things look homey!

Pretty but I would use a shallower box cause I love my blue jars either that or just group them together on some white fabric....
