• {It’s in the Details} Mason Jar Floral Containers

    Out of the top 10 search terms that readers use to come to my blog, five of them include ‘mason jars.’  I’m not kidding!  And I do love mason jars myself, so I feel the need to give the people what they want – mother effing mason jars!  Until you tell me ‘NO MORE MASON JARS’ I’m going to try to do a weekly post for you.  So this week’s post focuses on how to use mason jars as floral containers.  I did this at my own wedding, and the florals turned out so so pretty.

    Keep your arrangements small (as in low).  Use multiple containers for a mixed look, or one single jar with a larger bunch of flowers for a simple but elegant centerpiece.  Mix together the aqua and clear mason jars if you like, and you can tie them together to form a single container, decorate them with burlap or twine, or tie vintage skeleton keys around them with ribbon.  You can also mix them with other types of containers, like milk glass, ceramic pitchers, vintage bottles, or old milk bottles.  Another great idea is to hang the mason jars on shepard’s hooks to line your aisle or a pathway.

    So, more or less mason jars?  Be honest – I want to give y’all what you want to see.  Let me know what you’d like to see more of in the comments.  Or let me know what you’re sick of.  Or just say hi!

      There’s just something great about mason jars – they make any floral arrangement look gorgeous. For a photo shoot I did the florist put river rocks on the bottom of the jar and it looked amazing.

      I like the spray painted mason jars, just to switch up the look a bit. Hope that’s not blasphemous to the mason jar die-hards.

      The mason jar will look great at home or vintage wedding . You can fill it with candles, flowers, stones or sand. And using a variety of sizes and fillings, you can make an unique composition for the wedding table.

    •  And just like that, summer is back  Take me back to the fall weather of two days ago! Also, take me back to when this kid slept past 5 am and took naps. For a week now, between 4:30-5:30 am this kid climbs up on our bed over top of me and proceeds to squrim, poke, and annoy me till I get up. Quincy's sleeping till 6 or later FINALLY and now Calvin is waking me up!? And he refused to nap today (again) too. Seriously you guys, he's killin' me. He looks real cute in rain gear but if he does it again tonight he's headed to toddler military school. #sotiredineedanewwordfortired #calvins3rdyear #battlefieldmotherhood  The look you get when your mom puts on some JT for your photoshoot.

       There were very few baby things I hadn't yet tried by the time I had Quincy but I hadn't really used a sling before. I got my first sling when I was still pregnant with Q and tried it with Calvin, but once Cal was walking he never wanted to be carried. He's far too busy for all that. So Quincy is the first baby I've used a sling with, and I feel like I really missed out with the other two. I had and loved other carriers with them (and still do) but there is just something about the sling that is magical and it is my carrier of choice right now. It is convenient (you can keep it threaded and just throw it on), it is cozy, it doesn't tightly wrap behind my back which always makes me sweaty, and I can nurse while Quincy is in it which has been a lifesaver. I'm actually nursing him in this photo! I'm sharing photos from our recent visit to the pumpkin patch and how I got to do all the things with my family while wearing Quincy in the sling because I didn't have to stay with him in the stroller or go find a place to nurse him. He chilled, ate, and napped in my sling. And because I love it so much I'm teaming up with @mywildbird to give one reader a sling of their choice! Head to my blog to enter (link in profile) and tell your friends  #OLDfavefinds #babywearing #mywildbird #giveaway #fredrickfamfallfun  Never did I ever expect to be so outnumbered by boys. I get asked so often if we're going to have one more baby so I can "try for a girl." It kind of feels like the person asking is insinuating that I'm missing out on something. While I always pictured myself as a mom of girls (or at least one) and had to mourn the idea I had in my mind of braiding hair and getting mother-daughter pedis, prom and wedding dress shopping, and ballet lessons, I've never felt that I'm missing out on anything getting to be the mom of my three sons. When someone says to me "wow, you have your hands full" or "you must be tired" I just smile. Because I am tired. And my hands are full. But so is my heart.  #tiredeyesfullhandscantlose #momofboys #battlefieldmotherhood #mommaandquincyselfies #mommacharlieselfies #charlieandquincy And I'm hosting a @mywildbird sling giveaway on my blog tomorrow, so be on the lookout for that!
