Solitaire Coffee Jar Collection

Hello Everyone!

I know I've neglected my blogging lately. This time of year finds me spending many hours in our yard. I promise to post some pictures of our progress later this week.

I wrote an article for The Olde Prairie Register last evening about my Solitaire Coffee Jar Collection. The Solitaire Coffee brand was roasted, ground and packaged at the Morey Mercantile Company in downtown Denver between 1896 and 1956. I love to keep my craft odds and ends in these jars! What a great way to show off your collection AND be organized.

The June/July issue will be out on June 3rd and will be filled with lots of summer time fun. If you have some time later this week, click on the link below and read some fun articles!

I also found some time over the weekend to list a few Americana items on eBay. I hope you enjoy them!! For more information, just click on either picture you'll be whisked off to eBay land!!

At some point, I'll be offering a pattern for my Patchwork Stars. I love create primitives from my quilting scrap stash. Oh, and I keep my quilting scraps in a couple of those Solitaire Coffee Jars. The jars look so purdy with those scraps in them!!

Deanna :)
