rainy music

Hello World, It’s raining today and I’m enjoying a much-needed glass of wine while the toddler naps, along with some tunes.. WOO HOO! Listening to the Garden State soundtrack, I’ve come across an AMAZING genius artist! Although he’s been around since the late 60’s, he, Nick Drake died too young in his twenties. He’s folk and obscure with a beautiful smooth soft voice that just lingers in the air. Check him out!

Jars in different sizes


Masking tape

White Krylon spray paint

Fabric cut on the bias 1 1/2" wide by 10" per jar

Tea lights


1. After your jars are sparkly clean, tightly wrap them with yarn in a crisscross pattern and tape the ends on the underside or the inside so they stay in place. Don't place the tape on the outside of the jar where you will be painting.

2. Cover an area in newspaper and give the jars 3 light coats of white Krylon spray paint (waiting 5-10 minutes in between coats) and let dry.

3. Remove the yarn and wrap the tops with the bias fabric securing them with a knot. You could also use ribbon for the tops, it's up to you.

4. Add your tea lights and set your table.

Thank you Mark Montano!
