Throwback Thursday - Easy Mason Jar Peach Crisp

Thursday, July 31, 2014



So here I am again for another Throw Back Thursday post!  Where did this past week go!  I don't know about you, but I've been super busy - my niece got married,  I've been battling weeds in my garden and yard, working on Etsy shop orders, working on wedding projects, and planning a bridal shower!  All fun things (well, maybe not the weed part), but really keeping me on my toes!   Since it's peach season, I decided to bring back this easy mason jar peach crisp recipe!  A perfect quick and easy summertime dessert!


Peach Crisp

8 wide mouth pint size Ball jars

10 fresh peaches

Crisp Topping

1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 cup oatmeal
2/3 cup butter

Ground Cinnamon


I used the Ball Elite Platinum wide mouth jars.  I found them at Kmart.  They come in a set of four for about $5.50.  I mostly like these because they have the wide mouth and are perfect for an individual serving.


Peal the peaches and cut into bite sized pieces.  Divide the peaches equally among the 8 pint sized jars. 


Next you want to make the crunch topping.  You can mix all of the  topping ingredients using your food processor or by hand using a fork to work the butter through the dry ingredients.



Again, divide the topping equally among the 8 jars.   The topping will go almost to the very top of the jar.  Sprinkle with a little ground cinnamon.  Put your filled jars on a rimmed cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes (until the topping starts to brown).  


As the peaches bake, the volume decreases and that leaves room on top for your vanilla ice cream!    These individual peach crisps were sooo good - especially served warm with the ice cream!  

I have to say, I think this baking trend is here to stay - the jars are both cute and practical because they are reusable.   And, they are a  perfect individual portion size!  I hope you will give it a try!  If you are looking for another great peach recipe - here's one for Homemade Peach Ice Cream!

Throwback Thursday - Vintage Lace Mirror & Mantel

Friday, July 25, 2014


Since my blog has been growing, I thought I would begin a new feature called Throwback Thursday - I know - how original, right!  Well, it has become a popular feature on social media, so I'm going to give it a try here on my blog as well.  


Each Thursday I'll be sharing photos from an earlier post that you may have missed!  So here's my first submission - a mantel design from last year featuring a knock off of an Anthropologie mirror.  



The original Anthro lace etched mirror has a price tag of $5800!!!  You can see how I made mine HERE.  



I accessorized the mantel with some dried hydrangeas, 



and a vintage style photo display from Decor Steals. 



I think my photography skills have improved with the purchase of a new camera since these were taken, but I hope you will overlook the grainy pics!   Here's a view of the living room - I'm actually in the process of making some updates to this room - stay tuned!


I'd love to hear what you think of this new feature and if it's something you'd like to see more of each Thursday?  Thanks for being here today!

Screen Porch Reveal

Wednesday, July 23, 2014


It's a wrap - isn't that what they say on a movie set when filming is complete?  Well, that's what I am saying for my screen porch makeover - it's a wrap!  Seeing that it's almost the end of July, it think it really needs to be "wrapped up" - so there's time to enjoy it while we still have some summer weather!


The colors are a bit bolder than what you normally see from me, but I really like it for an outdoor space.  I initially was going to go with a navy and red Americana look, but  saw the bird pillow at Target and immediately knew I wanted to bring in some bright orange!  


If you missed my post about the curtains, you can find it here!  I have been in love with everything with a cross pattern and decided to make a bold statement in this outdoor space with the curtains.   



In the right hand corner, I created a little beverage station.


I used an old cabinet door to make the relax sign and found the vintage metal picnic baskets at a local barn sale.   They got an update with some  turquoise and orange spray paint!  


This tray table was a fun find!  The table base is a discounted outdoor table from Target that I picked up for $11 on clearance (it was gray and I spray painted it white)  and the round tray was also a clearance Target find for $14!  I married the two together to make a tray table.  It's perfect to hold magazines and a place to sit your drink.




 The outdoor poof on the left is another clearance Target find for $24!




Here's a look at the porch swing.  I made the cross pillow with more drop cloth and used the orange/red paint for the cross design.


 What's prettier than a bouquet of fresh flowers from the local farm stand!  


I'm so happy this project is finished so I can move on to the next - and so we can enjoy this updated space for the remainder of the summer!   Thanks for stopping by today!
