Ball/Mason Jars

Yum

Do these jars hold a special place in your heart? I remember my Grandma Holt spending hours in front of the stove making homemade grape jelly. We were warned not to touch the jars, but who could resist touching those sparkly purple glasses??

I have a green Ball jar that was given to me by a teacher friend who said it was one of the last ones to come off the line when they stopped making them. I have mine in my office at school, filled with buttons my dad collected for me once and gave to me at Christmas.

I love seeing these jars filled with salsa and homemade spaghetti sauce. Nothing is prettier on a kitchen window sill!

  1. I adore jars of all kinds and sizes! I like to use the Ball and Mason jars for a vase and tie a ribbon around the top. So simple, yet so pretty! I love you green jar!! Mine are all clear:(
