This Week {illustrated} and a Canning Storage Solution

It's just about time to start canning this summer's garden produce, and I've been working on organizing my little canned food storage area.  I hate having the canning rings all over the place, so I searched the internet to see if anyone had any great storage ideas.  I didn't really come up with anything.  My space is very limited, so I wanted to be able to hang my rings and save my shelf space for the jars.  And then it hit me...  Use hangers!  I grabbed a pant/suit hanger from the closet, bent the wire part back, and there you have it!

Here is the rest of our week in pictures:

We enjoyed some wonderful birthday food!  I'll be sharing the pancake and crepe recipes in the future.
We visited an arboretum for my birthday, and they had the most gorgeous flowers!
I got about 5 inches of hair chopped off!
I finished this project last night!  More pictures to come...
