:: DIY with My Grand Daughter and Another Birthday!


easy peasy repurpose project with jar light 2

I found this jar from an exterior light fixture on the porch when I  was cleaning out some things—taking them off the porch-- 

can’t tell it by these next pictures—but IT’S TRUE! I was!

This is something I’ve seen pinned all over Pinterest--  it’s inexpensive and easy to do.

It was so easy a 5 year old could do.  I got out the paints and brush and just let her “go at it”--

She painted while I scrounged for citronella tea lights, baling wire, and made some place to hang it.

I like how she didn’t cover the glass completely—

and it has a washed-out –somewhat, see- through- look –to -it. easy peasy repurpose project with jar light 2

The hook is a part off a child-size 4 wheeler—it was also lying on the porch.  I’ve never been more happy to have our New Shed--

Our porch was starting to be a collection center for odds and ends and things that BELONG IN A SHED… anyway, having it has given me motivation to clean up and clear out some things. 

I have to be honest—some of the things that are here, ARE HERE, because I see potential in them!

FOR INSTANCE,  this jar, hook/thinging, baling wire and marked down citronella candles from the local DOLLAR GENERAL!

Besides that—look at the fun I had making memories with my grand daughter—I took more pictures but these are the #socialmediapose – pictures I use for blogging and Instagram 

Speaking of Social Media Poses:  Guess who turned 4 years old today?!

Easton-elo 4yrs

“Easton-elo”!  Because all the good ones end in “O”!

Easton was born with a birth defect (though you wouldn’t know it) called Gastroschisis you can read about that here – Gastrochisis Awareness Day is coming up July 30,2014--

You can read about Easton’s (and Our) story here

We are so blessed and grateful to God for HIS healing power!

Til next time, Be Blessed!


Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. ~James 1:17

What fun! She did a great job painting that light fixture-it makes a great hanging candle holder. Happy birthday to your sweet boy. I am off to read about the defect he was born with. God bless him...and all of you- xo Diana

I love the jar! very vintage look and equally fun craft for the little ones. Gotta love the ninja turtles when they're as cute as this little guy!

I went back and read your story. What a brave daughter you have and what a precious baby boy God blessed you with. I love Psalm 139. Our days were written in His book before one of them came to be. God has a plan for that little fellow.
