What's baking?

Want to peek in the oven to see what I'm baking?

Its a fresh dozen of jars???

These are spaghetti sauce jars we're trying to make look like old blue canning jars. Do you know how many people it takes to eat 31 jars of spaghetti sauce? I finally resorted to giving church members a jar of spaghetti sauce if they promised to bring back the empty jar. Most people were very puzzled but then they already know I think differently than they do!

The jars will be used as part of the table decorations for the wedding. Individually, they aren't as blue as in the picture.

Basically, you stain the clean jars with glass paint, allow them to dry for 48 hours and then bake for 30 minutes to set the paint. They turned out a little streaky but I'm hoping with the lights turned down a little lower, most people won't notice. So, today I'm baking jars and then will be packing them together with the other table decorations. I'll share a picture of the finished product after the wedding.

Thank you to everyone who sent me a comment welcoming me back to blogland! I promise to do better about responding after the wedding.
