A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

Last Minute Gift...

I needed to be heading out the door... I would be returning a jar that someone gave me with delicious home canned peaches from her own tree.  Whenever I return a dish - I like to fill it with something.  So what to fill that jar with?  I had no suitable food - so I quickly searched my gift drawer... Ahh, those little garage sale find Yankee candles will fit.  Add a few sprigs of green and tiny pinecones, some ric rac and a gift tag and we'll call it done...
Wish I would have had time to add a burlap top.  
That's what I get for being 'last minute'.
Linking to Frugal Friday over at The Shabby Nest.
