I had a few empty jelly jars in my cabinet. . .

 
so I decided to cover them with some lace
 
add some pretty seam binding ribbon
 
plus a few embellishments.
 
Then, I added a tea light and placed them on my mantle.  I like the way they look of an evening with the lights dimmed.
 
I got to celebrate the Fourth of July with all of my grandchildren in Roswell, NM  This is a picture of them plus my daughter in law, Corina, at the "Alien Festival".  We rode the carnival rides, ate snowcones, visited the alien museum and saw a few extra terrestrials!
We also went swimming every day, shot up sky rockets, grilled outdoors, played and had a wonderful time.  I am so fortunate to have these beautiful people in my life.  Thanking God today for my children and grandchildren!  Hope you are having a good day, dear friends.

Vicki, your jelly candle holders are sooo lovely! What a great idea, and I love the way you added the lace and embellishments. They give off such a soft, pretty glow.

How nice that you were able to spend time with your beautiful family. It's always nice to be around loved ones.
