A REAL Mason Jar!

Happy Halloween!!!  Yesterday's post dealt with an Inkadinkado mason jar stamp.  Today's post has to do with a real one...well - more like a jelly jar...but go with me here!!!

On Saturday night we had a 'pumpkin' dinner at our house.  Each guest was asked to bring something 'pumpkin' related.  We had pumpkin croissants, pumpkin hummus, roasted pumpkin with herbs, pumpkin raviolis, pumpkin blondies, pumpkin cheesecake and pumpkin rolls.  Now, I'm felling 'PLUMPKIN!"

I found this nice and easy Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub recipe on the Under The Table and Dreaming blog and thought it would be a great 'gift' to our guests.  So I made up a double batch and it filled 10 jelly jars.  Stephanie Lynn who runs the blog also give a pdf for the labels!!


I used some of the fleece I had for my Hershey snowmen and added a Sizzix pumpkin for the top.  I used strips of the fleece to tie the label on.

At our dinner party - we also carved pumpkins.  We had a lot of fun, but I'm disappointed my pictures came out really bad - but I'm going to post them anyway........

Is it Dizzy or Buddy?
 The competing owls:
 Haunted house with bats
 Flower power

Cindy and Jill worked on a really great Yorkie pumpkin....but my shots were WAY too blurry - you couldn't even tell what it was.......hopefully she can snap another shot of it when she lights it at home.

Well, hope you have a fun Halloween if you or your kids are trick or treating.  We get TWO kids at our house...so it will be a quiet evening for us!


Thanks for your visit!

Hi Plumpkin,

Happy Halloween! Glad you had so much fun...

This jar looks so attractive. Love the fleece ribbon and the Sizzix diecut looks just perfect.

Hugs,

Oh my gosh, what a fun party! Holy cow, you guys are the pumpkin carving masters. Ours never look this good! As for all the pumpkin - YUM! I never got around to making my pumpkin muffins or anything this year because of my foot surgery. While I'm boo hooing because I didn't make it, I should be happy that I have lost weight this fall. (How the heck did I loose 12 pounds when I stopped working out and hardly move around at all? )

'nuf babbling from me. Your jars look adorable. I bet they were a big hit with your guests.
