Love in a magic jar.

Hands down, one of my favorite gifts of all time was a mercury jar from my kids. All of them were home for the holidays including my son’s wife. I guess they sat around one night thinking of loving things to say about me, printed them out and cut them into strips that were put into the jar.

I won’t, I can’t, share the sentiments because they are so precious, funny (!!) and meaningful ( I don’t want my mascara to run..) but any mom can well imagine what she would want her grown kids to say..

If you are having a hard time thinking of a sweet gift, let me suggest a magic jar filled with words of love.❤️

  1. That is so thoughtful! What is a mercury jar itself?

    • You can probably get them at any craft store. They have a silvery shine to them so you can’t see the paper strips inside..I keep mine on a shelf under my window where it reflects the afternoon sun. So pretty and shouldn’t be expensive.

  3. Yup- I wasn’t expecting anything like that at all!- (I was happy enough with the jar!! – not realizing it had anything it in- HAHA) You know the part that touched me most was visualizing them all sitting in the family room taking the time to do this..I have to tell you, I was really touched. 😭Did you see we each got a bedroom dresser after all this time?? I texted “Mr. T” this morning to tell him that I still can’t get over how happy it’s made me to have drawers..He txts back “well, it’s like going without chocolate for a year and then sitting down to a box of the swiss stuff..” I was like “hey honey, this ain’t Ethan Allen here..let’s be real, that would be the furniture equivalent of swiss chocolate…. IT’S IKEA!!!!.. so that’s a bit more like a Hershey’s Kiss..but hey, it’s been a year living out of boxes and bins so I’ll happily take it!!!
