Mason Jar Oil Candles

Check out this terrific tutorial from Ms Dawn! What are your thoughts on oil candles? I hadn’t given them much before this. A few ounces of oil will burn for hours. Useful and beautiful! Any glass jar or bottle will work, but I love mason jars and so do these guys. There are a lot of pics to get you inspired for any season and event. Save your pennies and make your own oil candles!

red white and krispy treats

Rice Krispies treats have to be one of the simplest and most delicious desserts ever. And cheap to make. Four ingredients is all that is needed; butter, marshmallows, cereal, and for this one – food coloring. So festive and patriotic. Happy birthday America! This is way easier than any birthday cake and just as delicious.
