Pink Saturday

Welcome fall and Welcome Pink Saturday visitors...glad you came by for a visit. I found the sweetest little vintage Halloween postcard and it had pink in it!! I was thrilled...I decoupaged it with some pink and dark sage green papers, added some glitter, my new favorite... and voila!

Next I took a canning jar...

and added Mod Podge all over it, sprinkled it with Martha Stewart's Pink glitter...it is wonderful and made myself a candle holder, by putting a small glass candle holder inside the lip of the glass jar. I added a pink ribbon, but you could use a silver and pink ribbon for Christmas, black ribbon for something more elegant, or pastel for Spring!

If you come back on Monday I am posting a tutorial on a jar with black glitter for Halloween, still a few days a way! Yippppeeeee, it brings out the kid in me...mine are grown!

Be sure to visit my post below for my giveaway I am having!
