Mason Jar Madness

9.25.2009

Happy Friday! I still haven't figured out what to do with or where to put my new/old blue Ball mason jar that I got a few weeks ago. Thought I'd post some inspiring photos and projects to get me in the mood. These lovely glass jars are so versatile, I think I'm going to have to start collecting more! I love how they are so simple and pretty with such a great history.

  1. I've actually been keeping an eye out for Mason jars! My childhood friend has a son named Mason. The family collects mason jars and they put trinkets from mom, dad, and now Mason's childhood. They live many states away, so I am hoping to make one centered around our home: childhood town, college that we went to, etc!

  2. I have very long windows, meaning my window sills in my sunroom are about 5 inches above the floor. I keep all of my mason jars on the 5 window sills. I usually use my green and blue ones there. The sunroom is the perfect place for them!

  4. I love Mason jars, especially the old blue wavy ones. I have 4 blue Mason jars on a shelf in my beachy masterbath post and the rest I use for office supplies and craft supplies.

  6. Aw! You included my little penny jars in with your beautiful collection of inspiring photos! Thanks! I love mason jars too. I checked my 1 lonely blue one and it has a "C" on the bottom. No lucky #13.

    I'm actually using some mason jars tonight for luminaries!

    Have a fabulous weekend!

  7. So pretty. They have so many uses. I've also seen them used as soap dispensers. I'm not sure how they add to the pump to the lid, but it's probably just opening a small hole.

    Also love them as vases.

    Have a great weekend!

  17. Good morning - I love your post about using old mason jars. I picked up several blue ones this summer in Montana and have used them mainly for holding flowers - but you have given me some great new ideas.

    Have a wonderful day!

  18. Thank you so much for all the wonderful ideas! I have several of these vintage mason jars, including a few of the blue ones, and they are just sitting in a cupboard because the house we moved into a year ago isn't charming like our old one and I didn't know what to do with my jars--I love vintage things and I am not crazy about our new "digs" (hubby loves it, though--ah, the things we do to please our men!) but this helps so much! Smiles, Jann

  19. Love how versatile they are....simply beautiful!
    Thanks for all the ideas; it would be wonderful to have the older ones, but i love the newer ones as well....recycle,reuse and redecorate!

  20. wonderful!! I love to use mine for housing "collections" of stuff that would otherwise clutter my space. I have a set in the living room with my daughter's mineral and rock collection. One jar is nothing but quartz we dug out of the mountains in magnet cove, ar. In others we have wine corks, matchbooks, tiny bottles of tobasco. My favorite jar is one that's about 2 gallons. I saw it in an antique store in Missouri. I have yet to add it to my collection, (more $$ than I can spend) but it has unopened baseball cards, chewing gum from the 50's, buttons, matchbooks, toys, political buttons, and otherwise amazing little things. It's like a time capsule.
