Treasury Tuesday: Put a lid on it

Good Morning!

Today’s Treasury Tuesday holds a little place in my heart. Mason jars have made a huge comeback in the past few years as a key piece of decor or usage, especially within the crafting world. We know from past posts that I adore them, especially¬†being from the country. Who knew there would be so many different ways to use them now besides preserving fruits and veggies!IMG_5513

Last Sunday at my cousins baby shower, my Mom’s cousin gave us all a special gift. She had found my Great-Grandmother’s old canning jars¬†and gave us each one as a memento. How special is that?! She wrote up the whole history of the jars, some of the original blue Ball jars (which, I found out were blue due to a mineral they used in the sand) and some the Atlas jars with glass tops, and no one knew which jar they got until they opened their bag.

Upon opening my bag and reading¬†the history of these fantastic jars and how long they had been with our family, I found that I got received one of the original Atlas jars with the glass and clasp lid. Knowing that this was once owned by my great-grandmother, someone I never had the pleasure to meet, made my heart swell. I love learning about my heritage and always know that my family has some great stories and history to share with us. Such an amazing and special gift Dolores gave us all. I can’t wait to be able to pass this down to my children and relay the story to them some day.

Dolores, thank you so much for the kind gift! And I promise–crossing my heart many times–that I will NEVER put glitter or deface that beautiful jar. ūüėČ

Treasury Tuesday: Rose and White

Treasury Tuesday: Rose and White

161 years ago, three amazing women created the Philomathian Society at Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia. Today, that organization is now¬†known as “Phi Mu Fraternity for Women”. I spent four years as a collegiate member and have since gone alum after graduating. While Founders Day was actually March 4th, I wanted to celebrate today and keep the momentum going! So proud to be a member of this organization.

To lend to those less fortunate a helping hand.

To think of God as a protector and guide of us all.

To keep forever sacred the memory of those we have loved and lost.

To be to others what we would they would be to us.

To keep our lives gentle, merciful and just, Thus being true to the womanhood of love.

 

To walk in the way of honor, guarding the purity of our thoughts and deeds.

Being steadfast in every duty small or large.

Believing that our given word is binding.

Striving to esteem the inner man above culture, wealth or pedigree.

Being honorable, courteous, tender, Thus being true to the womanhood of honor.

 

To serve in the light of truth avoiding egotism, narrowness and scorn.

To give freely of our sympathies.

To reverence God as our Maker, striving to serve Him in all things.

To minister to the needy and unfortunate.

To practice day by day love, honor, truth.

Thus keeping true to the meaning, spirit and reality of Phi Mu.

Treasury Tuesday: Over The Rainbow

Guten Tag, Petals!

Happy Treasury Tuesday!

otrtreasury

I’ve decided to share my favorite items on Etsy with you weekly!

This Tuesday, I bring you some of my favorite rainbow items from Etsy (and shameless plug, one is mine ;)) I don’t know about you, but rainbows just make me happy and “Over the Rainbow” from The Wizard of Oz was the first song I tackled in private voice in college, so it holds a little special place in my heart.

I’m in extreme love with the wall clock by “ArtisEverything”, it is so cute and fun! Might have to make me one of those! The tutu by “ThreePrincessBows” has been on my favorite list for a while. I love the bright colors and curl of each tulle tuff, complete with the ribbon ends! All of these are fabulous! So be sure to check them out!

Till next time,

DIY Doggy Treats

“‘Twas the night before Christmas,

And all through the house,

Not a creature was stirring,

Not even a mouse-“

That’s how the old song and dance goes, but is never quite truthful for the K household. Merry Almost Christmas! And if you are east of the Atlantic, MERRY CHRISTMAS DAY!

Bruno, the pup, and I decided that he’d give a little gift to his niece (Sasha – My sisters dog) and his nephew (Buster – My brothers dog). I had been dying to make him homemade dog biscuits but just haven’t gotten around to it with all the hustle and bustle of illnesses, shopping and work.

Today, when I got home from my trek out into the snowy winter day (YAY! WHITE CHRISTMAS!) to check on the kitties, I whipped out all the ingredients I found from this post and Bruno and I went to town!
