Tomorrow night Earl and I are hosting the dessert part of a progressive dinner for our Adult Bible Fellowship at our church. I haven't gotten lights strung on the front porch because it has been very cold and windy and I just hate cold wind! I hope it will warm up just a little just long enough for me to put the lights up soon. Anyway, to greet our guests tomorrow night I pulled some old green jars out of the basement, washed them up, tied some ribbon on and dropped in some tea lights.
I know these pictures are dark, but the glow of the candles on the front porch makes me think that even if I don't get the lights up this year....
It will be ok. I will take some pictures of the party to share tomorrow:>)


  1. They look lovely! I don't think you even need the lights!

  2. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas . . . And yes, I was singing it while I typed! I love your personal touches, the nativity, the yard sale finds, etc.!

    On a spiritual note... Sometimes I get used to seeing the widgets that I have on my blog and forget to read them. I noticed your Daily Snippet and thought I would look it up in The Message Bible. Having more than one translation helps bring the words to life in my spirit! It read:

    "Get me out of this dungeon so I can thank you in public. Your people will form a circle around me and you'll bring me showers of blessing!"

    Blessings, KJ

  3. Absolutely beautiful....warm and inviting...can't wait to see the pictures!

  5. Progressive dinners are so fun :)
    I think your jar candles may be more inviting that the typical string of lights anyway!

  6. Oh, those look so wonderful! I'm sure they will make your porch warm and inviting inviting -- so much nicer than just lights.

    Enjoy your dinner!
