Ever since we got out new house, our lives have pretty much revolved around decorating it. And considering the upgrade in space that we received when we moved, decorating is a huge job. Suddenly we have more rooms and an entire back patio that all need to be made into a home…our home. We’ve scouted the stores and often find ourselves online looking at all the options. And there are tons and tons of options! So imagine how excited I was when I found this:So simple. So beautiful. And I just love using candles to decorate. They’re called Hanging Mason Jar Garden Lights and are made by an Etsy shop called The Country Barrel. Before I knew it, I was lost in their shop of pretty things. I was completely hooked.
What makes The Country Barrel special is that they recycle regular, everyday items and make them into something beautiful. For the ladies at The Country Barrel, creating isn’t just something they do, it’s a passion. Their items are upcycled, fun and functional. And they are oh so affordable. You can’t decorate this cheap anywhere else, that’s for sure. Each and every item (with the exception of the items in their “vintage” section) is a one-of-a-kind creation. You will never receive an item identical to someone else, it’s just not possible. And it doesn’t stop at garden lights either, they have Mason Jar Flower Vases, Ball Mason Jar Hanging Lanterns, Frog Lid Flower Arrangers, Upcycled Fruit and Canning Jars, and so, so much more. With so many options, there really is something for everyone and every home.
Like, for example, I think this wine cork letter might need to find way into my home:
And here are few more of their gorgeous creations:Don’t see something you love? That’s okay, because everything in their shop can be customized! They’re always looking for ideas and can probably whip up the perfect item for you and your home.
