my weekend in pictures

I made an effort to make actual plans with people other than myself for a change and it turned out to be a great weekend!
I meet up with Sybil from animated confessions to catch up in person and talk about local loves. I made her some of my cookies to enjoy while I ate the infamous high tea version.

I am forever putting food in jars for gifts. The jar I made for Sybil turned out pretty cute the floral wrapping paper and leopard print washi tape made for a great combo. If you are thinking about using vintage jars for food gifts. Wide mouth "masons" are the way to go. The standard size jars tend to fit 6 cookies while the larger (and harder to find) will fit a dozen. I try to pick these up when ever I see them for a good price at the thrift but will admit they are a bit hard to come by, my stock is almost bare now!

Sybil brought me a hand made chocolate bar from local etsy seller alicja confections. I love anything salted and toffee and this bar does not disappoint. I am more than half way through it already, no control...
I brought my sister to the WEST Etsy seller market. She bought a vintage dress that I could not get a good picture of from wildwoodrose vintage and I picked up an all natural deodorant from just the goods. I have already tested it out and so far I am pretty pleased with my choice.

How was the weekend for others?
