Vintage Blue Ball Jars - Inspiration

We are about to renovate our kitchen and dining room. Although we are selecting new materials, it is my aim to keep the vintage farmhouse look that I love. Blue Ball jars are my inspiration for the new look. We plan to begin demolition on January 1st. We are hoping to be finished by the end of January. Hopefully there won't be many glitches to delay completion.

Handmade Birding Journals

I keep a record of the birds that visit my gardens and feeders in a sketchbook journal. It becomes tedious to record the lists each day as the species of birds are quite consistent each season and especially day to day. Thinking it would be convenient to have a checklist, I created these small journals today.

 The covers are my own handmade gampi papers.

 The checklist was created in Microsoft Word, printed onto drawing paper, and sewn with single and double pamphlet style bindings.

 I plan to make additional journals as the seasons progress and will keep an eye out for a container in which these will fit. Or possibly construct a slipcase for them.
