prize from canada

last week i was thrilled to discover i had won a photo contest
hosted by Chania at Razamataz
and look at the prize i received in the mail, all the way from Canada!
a 1920's era Crown jar with glass lid, handmade soap in a little gauzy bag,
and a wonderfully soft old sugar grain sack!
tied with perky pink ribbon

i collect blue Ball jars, and this beauty with it's sparkly crown, will fit in just fine.

i have never seen this type of glass lid before

handmade soap from her shop

this grain sack is so dreamy soft in color and texture......

congrats to you! I'm not a bit surprised. your photos are always beautiful. What awesome gifts. That jar is really special. I've never seen a lid like that either. I passed up several blue jars about a month ago and have been kicking myself ever since. Don't you just hate it when that happens?

No more deserving of that win then you. I remember that post and it was a white cloud of loveliness.
I always find myself gasping a bit as I scroll down to each photo....this one is no exception.

I've never seen a blue ball jar like that either.....just great to add to your collection.
The soap and grain sack are fabulous too.
