In a stitch... or mason jar.

DF and I have been engaged for nearly a year now. He proposed with fireflies in a mason jar, so we wanted to keep the theme. We like vintage, so this was a no brainer. I've been dreaming up little mason jars all year -- from mini desserts in little shorties to moss, grape vines and strands of microLEDs in big fat ones. Some tied in lace and some hung from trees with hemp twine and candles inside.

DF's sister is getting married in three days. A week ago I was sick and brought DD over so I could get some rest and what do I find in her livingroom but a pile of mason jar boxes, lace and frillies and candles to put in the little ones. Albiet, her ideas were tacky and messily thrown together.

I don't know what to do now. I don't want to be the tacky second bride trying to one-up the first. We have never gotten along but I've been jipped of the past year's plans!
