Sunshine in a Jar {& Three Gifts to Go}

The other day my son wanted to pick some flowers out of our garden to give to his Grandmother on her birthday...
 
So we grabbed a mason jar from my stash and fussed it up.
 
Using some pretty up-cycled wall paper in soft buttery yellow, grassy green, and sky blue flowers I cut a wide band of the paper, scalloped the edge, and taped it on to the jar.
 
With a little help from my assistant, we made some double winged fluttery butterflies punched out of the same paper and hot glued them randomly around the jar.  A yellow satin bow tied around the neck of the jar was the finishing touch and the jar was ready to be filled with delicate white rose sprays.
 
It was such a simple project ~ it took less than five minutes ~ and was a charming gift from a little boy {with some help from his Momma} to his Grandmother.
 
I may even make some more of these to place on tables for a garden club meeting I will be having at my home in November...
 
And what a lovely teacher's gift just because or a sweet hello to a new neighbor...
 
...or a Jar of Sunshine for you! 

Or would rather know if you are one of the three lucky ones to receive my gifts in celebration of my third annual Blogoversary?
 
I'm sure that's really what you want to know...
So now that I have your undivided attention, I am pleased to announce the three winners of my three gifts...
Carole from Maynard Green House is getting some lovin' from me with this set of three tags.  Her blog is a delightful read about decorating and gardening ~ all with a twist of flair that she gives.  Thank you Carole for your continued bloggy friendship!


Miss Margie is a new follower and fan.  She found me through a feature in Somerset Life and has continued to make me smile every time I read one of her comments.  These three photo postcards are for her...since she, herself, is such an accomplished photographer...and does not re-touch the photographs she makes ~ it's true photographic art.  I encourage you to visit her lovely blog, Late Bloomer Buds.


I am honored to know Monica of The White Bench.  I have been a fan of her work for several years.  We know each other through our blogs, Pinterest, our e-mails, and Somerset features {I've been lucky enough to be featured in some of the same issues in which Monica graces the pages}.  I just know that I would have such a great time with her.  She truly is one of the most creative individuals I know.  That, and of course...she is Italian!!!


Ladies, if you will please e-mail me privately and give me your mailing addresses, I will be more than happy to send you these gifts from the heart.


Thank you all for your continued encouragement, comments, and cyber friendship!


Ciao amici,
Suzanne
