Happy Friday all! I don't know about you but I am sure glad this week is OVER!! I am ready to start fresh on Monday, LOL! Meanwhile, this weekend I will be working both days at Hodges Nursery at the First Annual Fall Festival in support of Breast Cancer!  I am a member of the Durham Blossoms Relay for Life team and they will also have a booth where they are cooking up food to raise money in the fight against this awful disease! I am doing my part as well:  I have made several pink items that will be sold and all monies made given to the Blossoms as part of the fundraising effort this weekend! If you are local, you REALLY need to come on out - there will be TONS of vendors there as well as fun demonstrations and lots to see and buy :-)  This cute little luminaria is just one of the items I will have for sale at my booth! Each one has a battery operated tealight in it and they look soooo purdy all lit up!  I have made several of these in all different shades of pink.  Luminarias are a wonderful way to remember those that are going through treatments or have lost their battle to this awful disease.  I am hoping that these will help those in remembering their loved ones. 
Here is a side view so you can get a better idea of how they look.  They really are easy to make - there are samples all over the web so I just took a look at some of those and then  made this one my own by tweaking some measurements to fit what I was trying to do!  I am not going to leave a recipe for these but if you have any questions, feel free to contact me and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have! Have a wonderful weekend and I sure hope to see lots of you out at Hodges Nursery this weekend!
