As the building of the mountain house got closer to completion, I started thinking that we needed something to display the year that the process (purchase of land) began. I had quite a variety of ideas, but the best one came when my parents brought a really heavy (possibly cement) jug that had once been in my grandmother's basement. I ❤️ this jug!!!! It's quite large, and I just knew it would be the perfect base.
Since I was coming to "the farm" (that's what I call the mountain house) last night, I used my Cricut Explore yesterday to cut the design from brown vinyl so I could apply it to the jug. The look is so pleasing to me!!!! I mean, really . . . it's truly perfect! The cotton stems were purchased from Hobby Lobby and Magnolia Market. Huge thanks to my son, Chad, for taking a quality picture for me.
