the etsy shop is stocked …


I asked …


… and you answered.

All 70 of you …


* Wow *


Seventy comments in the comments thread!  Really?


I’m shocked.  I’m in awe.  And, most importantly, I’m truly ~ and deeply ~ grateful!  I wish I could hug each and every one of you.  So here’s my virtual hug …


And you were honest.  Brutally so, just like I asked you to be …


And while I recognize ~ and it was confirmed ~ that so many of you that stop by here are crafty types, you recognize that not everyone else is …


So why not?  You asked me.


You threw my question back at me and asked why not just go for it and give it a try?  Go ahead and stock some of those painted and distressed mason jars in the Etsy shop.


So I did.  You can see them right here …


And I’ve also expanded my repertoire to include a metallic line.  Spray painted in silver …



and gold …



So I hope you’ll help me spread the word.  I do custom orders too ….


and just in time for wedding season.

    totally awesome! and courtesy of another blog when you said you were going to restock your etsey store, I found it and the jars. and I previously made a stupid post because I failed to read “the jars are painted on the outside” so wipe them down :( sorry for that. ordering :) pa

    These look great, Linda! I love all the fun colors. And your photography is amazing. I’m sure they’ll be flying off the shelves!!

    I missed the post about selling, but I had to chime in and say wow, your photography has gotten really great! I have loved hanging around your blog this past year and seeing you grow. If I wasn’t a crafty woman myself, I’d definitely be thinking about buying your mason jars. Great color choices, great variety, and yup, rustic elements in weddings are still hot, so a great market strategy. Good luck!

    So pretty! I’m love the pink carnations inside as well. I’ve got to get me some metallic spray paint. Thanks so much for sharing. Have a wonderful day!

    These are super cute! I did this last year for my sister in law’s baby shower. They turned out great. I did orange, green, and gold. Everyone raved about them. I LOVE CRAFTING and CREATING! :)

    These are so cool looking. I would love for you to link this up to my Swing into Spring party going on right now. Hope to see you there.

    Oh my gosh, these are so cool. I’ve seen mason jars painted before, but never with metalic paint. Such a simple idea, and really great looking. I’m pinning these… Thanks for the inspiration!
