DIY mason jar lanterns. And also etcetera.

It's been a busy week around here, but I promised to tell you all about meeting the Pioneer Woman, and tell you about it, I will.

But first I would like you know that I have recently come across several more diy-ers in the blog world who have forced me to jump off a cliff headfirst into diy la-la land.

I just stare. And dream. And imagine cooking in their kitchens. And try to wipe the drool away before my children become scared of me.

When I'm wasting away my time on the internet, that's what I'm doing. Facebook doesn't even hold my attention like these incredibly creative, resourceful, take-life-by-the-cajones girls. now I want to make these....

Cute, huh? I've been looking for something to light up my patio table on warm summer evenings, and these seem perfect. I love that I can use old spaghetti sauce jars and some wire. I love that they have that unfussy, farm kitchen vibe.

In case you want the directions, here ya go!

I also want a farm kitchen. And a farm sink. And fresh eggs.

But not chickens. I hear they poop a lot and, well....I live with boys so I have enough poop in my life right now.

So here is a short list of a few of my new favorites. Try not to get addicted.

New Nostalgia (she loves Jesus!)

Kara Paslay Designs ...(she also happens to be a big Jesus lover!)

My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia (I don't know if she loves Jesus but still very cool)

Your turn! Tell me what's on your project list!

What are you excited about doing (or not excited cause that's ok too!)???
