Sending Wishes Your Way

Hello!  Have you seen the beautiful vintage painted mason jars floating around on Pinterest?  I must admit- they are some of my favorites!  LOVE vintage distressed mason jars!  I think that they make beautiful yet functional decorations.  I was looking for some ideas for a vintage looking vase when I came across the  jar below.  It was on the Handmade Wedding at Orcutt Ranch from Ruffled website.

How perfect is that?  I absolutely adore everything there is about that vase and floral arrangement.  It's simple yet sophisticated and the colors are gorgeous!  Even though my vintage distressed mason jar is just beginning I wanted to share it with you.  It will eventually be filled with a gorgeous bouquet of paper flowers but for now- this is what's complete so far.

I painted the mason jar with some chalk paint.  After it was dry- I sanded in random spots to distress the jar. The Ball and WIDEMOUTH raised images were also sanded.  It's difficult to see in the picture but I promise it looks beautiful!
