when your set design is a-wash

Hey, do you think Roger and Shirley will show up for cards?

There's nothing like flood waters to keep your cola cold!

So technically I'm into the 1970's for my 8/100 Project, but I am having a LOT of trouble finding a pattern from the 70's that I like.

So tell me, what is iconic in fashion from the 70's?  Is the bell bottoms, the peasant dresses, the mini skirts & vest combos with platform shoes?  What screams 70's to you?

blue glass

I have, for a long time, loved mason jars - especially the blue ones.  They have been something of a trend in recent years in weddings and decor, most popularly used as vases and lighting fixtures.  

When we visited the in-laws this summer, my love of blue mason jars came up and I was promptly lavished with an assortment of sizes and brands that made this girls' heart go pitter-pat.

On the piano.

Mine right now sit prettily in a location where they are visible through most of our living space.  They gently emphasize a vintage blue colour that is a running theme throughout, and until I find a use for them that inspires, I'm content to have them rest as a generous gift that brings me endless amounts of visual pleasure.
