My Pink Saturday 100th Post Give-A-Way!

What a fun
Pink Saturday Today!
Not only is it
Valentine's Day
but it's my
100th Post!
you know what that means...

It's time for my first Give-A-Way!

You know that Jacob has been hard 
at work creating the perfect gift.

Ever since he was a little boy
Jacob wanted to be
an Electrician.

With all of the knowledge that he
has accumulated over the years
I think that all he needs
is his license!

He has wired his log cabin, my shed,
placed lights in my garage.
Put the  recessed can lights 
in our kitchen,
 replaced outlets and switches.
He even makes lamps.

He has created this
Antique Ball Jar Lamp
just for you!

The fun part of the Ball jar lamp
is that you can fill it
with anything  that you want!
Just like these  cute
Pink Conversation Hearts, 
or how  about
Jelly Beans....

or you can even leave it empty.

I love the look of the antique blue/green glass.
The jars were manufactured   by 
the Ball Brothers Glass Manufacturing Co.
from 1923 to 1933.

They used to be easy to come by
but around these parts
the jars are becoming scarce.
Especially the zinc caps.

Jacob and I travelled to many 
Antique stores to gather  the parts!

The lamps are the perfect size 
to place on your kitchen  counter, 
bathroom vanity, sewing room, 
or craft room.

I think this lampshade goes with
the color of the glass perfectly!

Here is a close-up of the dangly, little hearts.

This lamp was handcrafted by Jacob. 
Please click here to visit  his website.

Now not only will you receive this darling
Antique Ball Jar lamp
but you will also 
receive these sweet adorable
baby chicks!

and you will be entered

Thanks for visiting my blog!  

I cannot express the gratitude that I have
 for each and every one of you.  
This blog is the first thing I do  in the morning,
 and the last thing I do before I go to bed.
I cherish each and every comment.

I never expected anyone to be interested
in anything that I have to say.

I live a simple life with my son Jacob.
It is fun to share with you 
the things that we do together.

I love to read about your lives and your families.
I have learned so much, received delicious recipes,
great decorating tips, and feel like I have made many friends.
We have shared many laughs and tears.
Thanks for making me a part of your life.

Don't forget to visit 
for the rest of the 
Pink Saturday Fun!
Happy Valentines Day!

Sweetie said...

Robyn, Congratulations on your 100th post. The antique ball jar lamps are really clever. I have some of the jars filled with old buttons. I could use them for a lamp and put buttons in them. Your Jacob is certainly talented. I'm going to visit his site.

Hi Robyn,

What a great post, the lamp is darling. I hope Jacob does become an electrician, they make a good living. ;) Our bestman and now his son are doing very well in that field.

I love visiting your blog, just to see what's going on with you and your son. It's always a pleasure.

We made little lights with our granddaughters, they collected sea shells while visiting here, and I gave them some plastic mayonnaise jars to put them in. So we wired them and bought inexpensive shades, which they decorated. It was a fun project on a rainy summer day.

Congratulations on your 100th post.

(((((((HUGS))))))) & ONE FOR JACOB TOO (((HUG)))

I love Ball jars. My husband's grandmother did a lot of canning and when she died, each of her children and grandchildren took one of her jars.

Kristens Creations said...

What a neat lamp! So unique! Your son is very talented. Love the little chicks too.

My tooth has settled down a little. I went in yesterday and Dr. Bishop shaved part of my tooth down, it definitly helped. I'm anxious to see what the endodontist finds. All I know is it's been hurting off and on going on 10 months now. Maybe I'll get it taken care of soon, Kristen
