vintage blue mason jar decorating tablescape abeachcottage
Wed 17th, Apr, 2013
Good moaning from Australia, let us have some coastal nautical beachy style deck decorating with vintage blue mason jars shall we? Yah, that would be good.
How about throwing in some vintage ribbon for good measure?
I have this thing for hanging things for coastal style from the roof of this old cottage and the tatty old deck that sits out the back, I think you may have ascertained that by now. It’s been much in evidence here – there have been phases too…there was the tissue paper pom-pom phase which swept the decorating Pinterest world and took bloggers by storm, I am still not sure whether to laugh or cringe at the copious amounts of tissue paper pom poms my poor Beach Cottage Crew had to suffer as they went about their day when that was going on. Then there is the vintage bottle hanging stage, I don’t think this will ever end…
And now we have, dun dun dun, the amazing, the spectacular, the astonishing!
The flying vintage blue mason jar!
I did promise that I would not publish on this here little coastal nautical decorating blog another vintage blue mason jar for a very long time, but my friends, after much protest from dear readers, how could I not comply with your wishes.
As you know I am here to serve.
This is a super easy tablescape / vignette with a vintage coastal twist – the mason jars are secured with fishing wire or ribbon and then just hooked up to the ceiling with drawing pins (I am told by my now Aussie kiddos that you may indeed call these things thumb tacks).
The flowers are from the garden – I have to tell you that after much waiting and whining I am VERY pleased to be able to go out in the garden and actually come back in with flowers
I kept everything else simple, not much colour and lots of white – one does not need too much foofing and fuss when one has to dodge whacking one’s head with a vintage blue Mason Jar when sitting down to eat.
I hope you like it!
OK, that’s it for me, we are heading down the beach for a coffee and a school holiday ocean dip (I may just take the lazing on the sand bit the water is cool now) and I am finishing up the bits and bobs to this new blog that after a busy day yesterday didn’t happen…who knows what will happen in the school hols though?? I do know one thing, I am itching to move things around…just what is that strange phenomenon that takes hold of one every now and then?
I’ll be seeing ya lovely Beach Cottage people.
