Mason Jars

These things have been around for years. Probably even centuries! Well maybe not that long, but it’s been a while. I always remember them being around. Well, they are not just for canning anymore. People now are using them for a wide variety of things. Here are some of the things I use them for.

I store spaghetti  and rice in them.

I also store dried beans in them and set them around for decoration.

A couple just sit around looking pretty.

In the bathroom the smaller jelly jars hold cotton balls and Q-tips.

They also make good pencil holders.

I saw this on Pinterest and liked it so much I made one for myself. LOVE this idea.

I cut the striking strip off the box of matches and clued it to the lid of the mason jar which holds the matches. So much prettier than a box of matches sitting by the fire place.

I can’t wait to use this idea for Kathy’s wedding. Hopefully I will have more flowers in bloom then than I had this day.

This has got to be our favorite use for mason jars. Fill with ice and your favorite drink. Ours is ice tea of course.

More uses to come. Can’t wait to share!!!

 

 

Hearing from you makes my day!
