Homemade Peach Jam Jars..

Hello there.  I'm sharing a cheery little project today made fresh from my kitchen.  I grabbed a few of my homemade peach jam jars off the shelf and embellished them with items from my 1970-Something Kit + a few items from the April Gossamer Blue kits (which go on sale today).  
I used the vintage strip of fabric from the kit + a trimmed down tag to make some cute packaging for my peach jam jars.  I typed the label using my vintage typewriter.  The wood veneer and enamel dot are from the Gossamer Blue kits.
I found the vintage, peach gingham fabric at a local thrift shop.  On top of the jars, I adhered the cute wood veneer embroidery hoop pieces from the Bits & Pieces Kit from the April Gossamer Blue kits. Such a fun little addition that gives my jars even more of homespun look.
I'll sit these on the shelf and keep them for just the right person.  They'd be cute as a last day of school gift for some of my favorite teachers and secretaries at the school, along with a little jar of fresh flowers.

Note:  Recipes are from the pectin boxes and Pinterest.  Enjoy!

I really get inspired every time I read one of your posts! I love how cute you dressed up this jar of jam! Everything about it is homemade, even the jam, and that right there is the best kind of gift! I hope you and the family have a wonderful Easter and I would LOVE to be a recipient of your jar of jams! Just sayin :)
Hugs,
