Raspberry Jam


Happy Tuesday!  A few weeks ago, my sister Stephany, daughter Halena, and I went raspberry picking at a nearby farm.  As soon as we finished, we made a big batch of raspberry freezer jam.  It's really easy and now my freezer is stocked with jam that I can pull out as needed for us or for gift giving in the months ahead.




I thought I would do a quick post with just a few simple ways I like to dress up canning jars for gift giving...

stamped paper doilies
{use a small piece of two sided tape under the doily to hold it in place}...


I found these spools of green twine at the flea market a few years ago and just love the color...jute twine works great as well...


punched butterflies...


burlap, vintage seam binding, and a sprig of fresh rosemary...







My good friend Jeanne is coming into town this weekend and staying at my house...yay...so I won't be posting again until next week.  I hope to have some pics of the Na-Da Farm Sale to share with all of you when I return!

Have a great week!!!
