Happe Monday, Barb!! Hope your weekend was delightful!! I love the idea of gifts in jars! I am giving some this year, but in the form of preserves, and not in the jar breads! Keep the ideas coming gal!!

Hi Barb, thanks for stopping by and entering my giveaway. Good luck! I love the idea of soup in a jar. They are so colorful and they last a long time and are so pretty. We love soup at our house, thanks for sharing.
