Ball Jar Beauties

S.N.O.W.?  Seriously???  On Holy Week???

 

Sorry, just had to vent first.

 

Last week I received a box of beauty on my front porch.

A sample case of the Ball Heritage Collection Pint jars.  In my 2nd favorite that is threatening to take over my first favorite color.

Aren’t they adorable?  These jars are a limited edition collection to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Ball Brothers Perfect Mason Jar, created in 1913 in Muncie, Indiana.  I have such great nightmares memories of gardening,  canning and freezing summer fruits and vegetables when I was a kid.  My mom canned stuff like chili sauce (yuck), and pickles (yum). 

 

I don’t think I’ll be using these beauties to preserve my summer bounty (I’m pretty sure summer is never coming, see line #1), but…

 

I found some great DIY/craft ideas, though, on my friend Donna’s blog, Funky Junk Interiors.

 

There is nothing prettier than aqua ball jars on a window sill filled with summer flowers.

Or filled with flatware for a picnic.

If summer never does show up, I can plant my herb garden on a wall.

Have any Ball jar projects to share?  I’d love to hear about them, leave a link in the comments and have a great day!

One thought on “Ball Jar Beauties

  1. I’m addicted to mason jars, new and vintage. Those Ball jars are beauties. Let’s see, I use them for craft supplies, all my spices, pencil holders, office supplies, soap pumps, display of vintage, pretty on their own, for flowers, dry and frozen food storage, canning, taking soup to work…told you I am a bit addicted to them.
