Canning in the Cellar

In my own little corner,
in my own little chair,
I can be whatever I want to be.....

My own little corner is almost done,
the little things are sorted,
and I'm ready to play again.

Canning has never been so colorful or fun...

How about a jello mold bursting with wiggly jiggly possibilities....
just please don't unmold the "jello."

No more muffin top here!
Spell out whatever word you please,
just not the word "calorie" or "fat."

All can be found in my newly repurposed "pantry,"
in the "cellar" art studio....

I am one happy camper.

Too bad I have 8 loads of laundry to fold,
dinner to make,
a muddy floor to clean,
3 bathrooms to disinfect,
and an evening with 30 third through fifth graders to lead.

I can dream, right?


  1. Oh it all looks absolutely wonderful! Now after those 30 kids you have a nice quiet place to unwind. Love the jar organization!

  2. Man do I have craft closet envy!! That looks amazing Julie...ooh those little jars of goodies!!

  3. Julie, Julie, so so recognizable your lovely post today! We dream, sure we do. I love all your colorful jars. Your pantry looks amazingly pretty! I wish you many many sweet days in your cozy, colorful, awesome pantry. I'm sure you will ENJOY! Great idea, knowing how your pantry looks like all the way on the other site of the blue blue Ocean ...
    Have a colorful weekend, sweet Julie! xo

  4. Ooh Julie..I am very impressed! Another happy organiser. You aren't a Virgo by any chance are you? If you are, you would have made it with 30 litle ones last night. How did it go??
    Jeanne :) all the jars!

  5. YOur craft room ROCKS mt friend! Love it! Now did you find those tags in the trash for your slipcover? I'm sure the ones you bought will be just as beautiful. Add some white pillows to it and that will pull in some of the white that you were wanting. Have a great weekend my friend!

    Thank you for your friendship~

  7. Oh wow, you are so creative! I love your blog.

  8. Oh my, I adore your little corner! I would love a little corner just like that one, but we do have something in common! I have 8 loads of laundry to fold, dinner to make,
    a muddy floor to clean, and 3 bathrooms to disinfect too!

    Wishing you find the time to spend in your sweet space!

  9. The jars are adorable! Your organization is incredible. I imagine with a full house, you have to be on top of everything! Good luck with all of your tasks. I hope you get to rest soon!
