~decorating with jars~

My holiday decorations differ each year.
Same stuff but I never arrange and display them
the same two years in a row.
I don't do it on purpose.
In fact, if you want to know the real truth
it's not because I'm's 
because I can't remember how I did it 
the year prior. I really need to start
taking pics of the stuff because there have 
been years that
I've been quite proud of myself.
I have a lot of jars.
I can veggies in the summer/fall and 
my husband cans smoked fish (the best you've ever had)
in the winter. We always have jars stashed away
in the hutch. Often times I end up using the jars
for my holiday decorating. 

Here's my latest with the jars:

I stuffed them with a little bit of fall foliage
and plastic pumpkins,
turned them upside down and 
tied some raffia around them. 
Simple and understated yet still festive.
You should see what I do with them at Christmas....
maybe you will if I can remember :)

oooooo!! love that centerpiece on your shelf!
you are very inventive with jars and displaying fun trinkets in them throughout the entire year...whether it be buttons, or skull heads (i think i saw one in your halloween jar?) have you ever added small xmas lights inside for a night time glow???
