~Christmas Mason Jar Candles & kgabara necklaces and Simple & Sweet Fridays #145~


I've been wanting to make some mason jar candles after seeing them on Pinterest and other blogs.
I used some mason jars, pine cones with glitter, jute,
 candles and rock salt.
A Christmas project that takes little time, 
but looks so pretty when lit.
Simple red roses next to the candle is another elegant look.
I cut some ribbon and added a bell onto jars
 in the entryway.
Glittered pinecones and fresh greenery placed around the candles.
When you walk into the house a winter scene greets you. 


Before we get to last weeks features, I wanted to share with you a few of my daughter Katie's unique stained glass necklace designs.

website kgabara.com

~Vintage Silver at Christmas~

I was wondering what a silver tray with little trees would look like. 
Just for fun I took some photos.

I found these photos from last year.
Love the Winter Tea Set.




I stamped some old vintage silverware.
I'm getting a late start on decorating for Christmas because we had the Summers Past Farms Sale last weekend.
We had lots of fun with the family.
A latte with some homemade biscotti will start my day.
Then I'll tackle the Christmas boxes.

~Christmas Treats and Simple & Sweet Fridays #144~


The girls and I have been baking some goodies for Christmas.
~Pinecone Treats~
Made with peanut butter, pretzels and Fiber One chocolate cereal.
Easy to make with some powdered sugar sprinkled on top.
We made some stamped sugar cookies.
We're getting started on baking our annual Christmas cookies.
I had to make some Paris sugar cookies too!
A little Paris Christmas treat.
We also made peppermint candy plates.
We melted some peppermint candies in the oven.
I lined some parchment paper in a bowl,
so after it cools it's easy to remove.
It would be a pretty Christmas gift for a special teacher, 
friend or neighbor.
With a delicious cupcake on top!
It finally rained in San Diego,
We needed the water!
How are you doing with sending out your Christmas cards?
I just starting mine.

Looking forward to seeing all your wonderful Christmas holiday projects this week.
