Many many moons ago as I looked through the Pottery Barn catalog I noticed a display wall.
On this wall – ledges,
on the ledges – mason jars,
in the jars – sand.
I knew I just had to do this one day.
Fast forward about 3 years … on the first trip I took with Mr. LoveCityLiving we collected sand from the beach at the lake.
We have kept up the tradition. We are up to 5 jars. They sit on our kitchen window ledge.
We contemplated doing jars from places without sand … like when we went to New York City or Disney World. But, decided to keep it simple, just a sand and shell collection.
With my newly obtained Cricut I just made labels for the jars. The name of the beach on the front, on the back I wrote the state we were in and the date.
Here we are without label … just sand in a jar.
