I took a quick side trip to the Salvation Army while out and about yesterday. I was tickled to find this super cool canning jar. It is called Le Parfait and is made in France (imagine something not made in China!!). It is a nice heavy jar and is quite large. It is .75 liter which I think is just over a pint. Maybe 2 1/2 to 3 cups. I looked online and found that 1) I got a great deal! and 2) I want more of these jars!
I picked up Country Living Handmade Country: Old-Fashioned Crafts and Timeless Keepsakes, a nice big coffee table style book with pretty pictures. I love these kinds of books but they are usually out of my budget. This one was only $1.49! I was so excited because I looked at some Country Living books at Half Price Books and the cheapest was $10.
