How Sweet is Kenny

Old Ball Canning Jar

Doesn't this look like a handful of wild flowers
from   a sweet little girl?

 Kenny is so thoughtful, He was out at his deer camp house, it
has some old sheds on it. and he was cleaning one out, when
he found this dirty old canning jar. He knew I would see the
beauty in it. And I did!!  I had been sick for a while, and was
house bound [no fabric stores was visited..oooh this was bad,ha].
 He brought  it home to me, I cleaned it and oh how pretty..
I have seen lots of old canning jars, but this one, had a  funny
shape to it..
  I told Kenny, all I needed was for a little girl to bring me
a handful of wild flowers.His reply,"I think Cindy[our grown
daughter] is a little  too old for that!"  So, I did the next best
 thing ,I went to my stash of artificial flowers,and gave myself
 a handful of flowers.. And I added a tiny little bird  to the flowers..
  How sweet...to have such a thoughtful husband. The little things
are what counts!!!!


  1. Sounds like Kenny is a "keeper" - lol! I agree wholeheartedly...it's the little things that count! What a great "new use" you've given to that jar!

    1. Thanks.. He is a pretty good ole fellow.. And I love my new jar..ha

  2. That Kenny is such a charmer! I'm glad you're getting better!

    1. Thankyou Stacie, I am so much better.. And am enjoying sewing.. Have several things I have made..need to get posted.. SO far behind ,since my computer crashed.. Proud to have a new one..yea..

  3. What a nice find! The jars has such a beautiful shape. So sweet that Kenny brought it home to you! I agree, he is a keeper for sure!

    1. Thank you Cathe, I just loved this jar. I had never seen one shaped like this.. I was so proud Kenny remembered me and brought it home.ha..He is a pretty nice fellow.ha

  4. Oops, that should have been "jar" not jars...old eyes and fast fingers make mistakes!

    1. Ha,ha ..well, I would have taken jars... but sadly it was only one loney dirty jar to be found.lol
