Simplicity Saturday

Over the last 4 weeks, I shared several simple ways to wrap beautiful gifts for Christmas or any other occasion.

In keeping with the spirit of Simplicity Saturday, I wanted to share this simple idea with you.

Some faux snow, a tea light, a little winter green and a jar representing the warmth of the Christmas spirit or the comfort of a roaring fire during a cold winter day.

These could easily be displayed for the remainder of the winter season.

I think they would look even more beautiful with vintage glass, which I know some of you are lucky to own.

The simplicity of these jars make them beautiful in my eyes and I hope you share the same sentiment.

Wishing you a warm weekend!

much love,


  1. I absolutely love the simplicity and elegance of these...

    Take care,

  2. I do so love these! I have been thinking of making something like this. I love the idea of the fake snow inside. Just like you said, simple and beautiful. Joni

  3. Simply Beautiful!
    Another friday's favorite for sure :-)

  7. I think these are simply lovely. I love the way they look. Nice to meet you.

    God bless, Amy

  8. Love it. It looks so rustic yet classy.

    Warmly, Michelle

  9. Wow, love these, and how simple! I'm going to have to "borrow" this idea. Tks for sharing.

  10. They look beautiful, I love these!!

  11. I've been blog hopping all day - yours is truly a gem! I love the SIMPLICITY, creativity, color palette... (you'll see why when you stop by mine)

    We do the same things at our house - just change the "fillings" along with the seasons. Its time to get those pumpkin candles out of there! :)

    I'm now following you through the Boost My Blog Friday Blog Hop! I hope you'll do the same! You can find me @

    Sofia's Ideas

  12. Beautiful idea!! I love the clean beauty!

    I shared them on my tatertots and jello facebook page and linked to you :)


  13. These are really wonderful - I agree that they would be great to use throughout Winter. We live on the Coast so we lose power quite often during winter and we have candles throughout the house.

    I'm a new follower from Show 'n Tell Friday - I hope you can drop by my blog and say ,"Hi!" sometime.

    Happy Holidays.

  14. Just gorgeous, I'm going to put some together!

  15. Love the wintery white jar candles! I'm a new follower from the DIC linky and hope that you'll take a moment to visit me sometime at Stuff and Nonsense.



  16. These are beautiful jars! I decorated today and made my own wreaths. I've been looking for other creative decor I can do on my own. Thanks for sharing this I may give it a whirl!

    Hope you'll come follow back or just stop in :)


  17. What a beautiful blog you have. :) Adding you to my blog list so I don't forget where to find you. :)

  18. The simplicity of them makes them all the more beautiful. While I have a lot of vintage glass, I think the mason jars look fantastic!

    Thanks for linking your creative talent to my party each week.

  19. Very cute and cozy looking! You have a wonderful blog!

    Happy Holidays,

  20. So beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

  21. Gorgeous! And I agree, so peaceful and calming.

  22. Very cute! I need to make myself some of these... :)

  23. They are beautiful. They would make great gifts too.

  24. Love this idea...and I have the supples on hand - think I'll us this for a brunch I am having in the morning! Thanks for sharing

  25. Saw you on Color Outside the Lines. I love the idea of candles in "snow". I need to copy that.

    Check out my blog


  26. Illuminating idea! If you are worried about the faux snow and fire you can use rock salt as snow to get a crystal snow effect.

  27. Just wanted to let you know that I featured this today on FTF! Grab a featured button if you would like one and don't already have one! Thanks and Merry Christmas!!

  28. Nice! I like anything that gives a warm, cheery glow at Christmastime. They have a good 'sitting beside the fire on a snowy evening with my knitting and my dog at my feet' sort of feel. :-)

  29. Just dropping by to let you know that I linked to this post in a round up today from the Home & Garden channel at Craft Gossip. :) You can see the feature here
