Playing Ball....

My family's evening life is made up of baseball and softball practices and games daily. Now, I must say we actually have had a few days off because of all the rain that we are getting this week, so once it stops, we will be having anywhere from 1-2 games a night until mid June.....YIKES! We'll be on hotdog/hamburger overload! :)

So, due to our love of baseball and a creativity/tweaking burst at 7 a.m. this morning, it led me to do a little simple, vintage, table top piece.

What do you think? I haven't been able to really cut many flowers these past few days with all the rain, and I am waiting on a few things to really open, so I decided to go a little different in the place of flowers....

I said it was simple.....

Nothing says summer fun, like those beautiful red worn laces.

Have you voted yet for your favorite glaze on Indian Trail Pottery FaceBook? Please take the time to do's a close running on Rusted Barn, Robin's Egg, and Mouse is in 3rd. Have a great weekend friends!


  1. I love it!! We are a baseball family too! American Legion ball begins in a few the same everyday....then when Brandon goes to College in the fall on a baseball scholarship ...a few more years of ball left ....It goes so fast!!

  2. Oh, I can't wait to sign my son up for baseball! I was totally into it growing up! My daughter never liked sports so I didn't get the experience with her but I will with my son, he loves sports! I love your centerpiece!! Maybe some reindeer moss in the bottom, looks like baseball turf? But I love the way you have it the best!!

  3. That says it all Tarrah! So cute! I miss those days!

  4. Aaw man Tarrah, now you've really hit a nerve! ha ha! (: We like baseball, but LOVE fastpitch softball!! I used to play, coach, and umpire and my daughter plays ss/p for her high school and travel teams. Our boys (3) have played football too and our oldest is headed to northern Ohio to play (college) in the fall. Some of our best memories and fun times with our kids (and family & friends) have been during all the sports activities!! Soooo .... I really like your display! (:
    I don't have a facebook page, but used my husband's yesterday to "like" yours. I think all the glaze colors are gorgeous, but chose "mouse" yesterday. Heck, I like all of them. (; It's hard to choose a favorite. Hope you guys have a great day and enjoy some sunshine (and fun) at the ballfields!


  5. Jennifer, it does sound like you'll be into ball for a few years, enjoy it! Legion ball is lots of fun.
    Sandy-thank you!
    Robyn- very good idea about the moss....I don't have any here or I would have tried it out....I might have to get some! ;)
    Teresa-thank you!
    Mitzi- so your a ball phanatic family too?! LOL! Our girls play fastpitch as well...If my jar would have been bigger, I would have put softballs in there too! Oh, and thanks for voting!! :)

  6. I've always loved the look of old baseballs in glass jars... looks great! :)
