Today is Mason Jar Monday here at Weeping Cherries and in the spirit of Autumn I thought we could dress up those mason jars fall style!

Mason Jar Luminaries!  Instead of sand like shown here, consider filling the base with popcorn kernels or nuts for a touch of Autumn harvest feel!  Then insert tea lights in the center and perhaps tie some raffia around the mouth of the jar.  These make a really cute way to greet guests on your front porch or anywhere around the house!


What’s Cookin’ Wednesday September 10, 2008

Since we’ve been out of town for a week and I make a point of grocery shopping on Thursdays to get 10.00 off at a local grocery chain, the cupboards are bare.  Using what’s left in the pantry, I am going to throw together some grilled cheese and tomato soup tonight.

Today is actually the perfect day for such a meal as it is cloudy and chilly and feels like Autumn is on its way!  Ara and I ate warm maple oatmeal on the back porch this morning bundled up in jackets and a blanket.

Such weather begs the question, “What is your favorite Autumn meal?”

Feminine Friday is hosted by thebarefootmama.com. To participate post:

“An outfit that you own (or a photo of a favorite look) that exhibits your femininity (does not have to be a dress…be yourself!)

A hairstyle, accessory or piece of jewelry that is special and makes you feel beautiful

Something in your home – can be nonwearable, of course – that represents your femininity (it can be anything!!)

An inspiring or thought-provoking article, book review or quotation on any topic related to femininity

Feminine Friday is not about being a cookie-cutter. Share what femininity means to you and how you define modesty, beauty and being a Daughter of the King.”

This week, for feminine friday, I am going to share with you one of my favorite feminine things- tea!

The art of having tea is one of my favorite feminine traditions. Whether it is a warm Autumn tea with friends, a hot steaming cup by myself with a blanket and good book or a mason jar of sweet iced tea on the porch with a neighbor, I feel every inch a lady.

With Autumn (my favorite holiday) right around the corner, I’ve been rotating the tea collection that I have in the tea caddy to orange spice black teas, pomegranate reds, and cinnamon white teas.

What is your favorite way to do tea?
