So, here's a little tutorial for you, courtesy of the dapper Mr. Beeper. Last summer I handed him a crate of mason jars and asked him to make some lanterns out of them that we could hang in the back yard--and this was the result. Today, it is about my favorite feature in our yard--instant ambiance in a jar (um, pun intended). Get your own ambiance-making instructions right here:
And step by step photos above for your reference. (and those are NOT my hands in the photos--Mr Beeper's, thank you very much).
And this is what I recommend you do by the light of your mason jar lanterns: pour yourself a glass of white wine, set your bare feet in the grass, listen to the crickets, and think about nothing (or Jude Law, if you really want to).
