An All-Time Favorite of Favorite Things
I love the aqua color of the ball mason jar and the feel of the metal lid. Simple. Watery.
There are so many uses. The obvious being canning, but since I don't have a garden here are some other uses for these pretties.
Drinking glasses, of course. I prefer red wine in mine. ;)
Flower Vase. Nothin' prettier than a bunch of wildflowers on the kitchen table in a Mason jar.
Cotton ball, Q-Tip Holder - Organizer of all Bathroom, Spa needs
Button Jar. I bet your Grandman had one.
Dry Goods Storage. The big ones are nice for tea, coffee, sugar & flour.
Leftovers. Send your guest home with a jar of your homemade soup or pasta sauce!
Votive holder. The aqua give off such a pretty candle-glow.
Pencil holder, office supply organizers. At the office, these can give your desk a nice homey feel.
Food gift. Fill will M&M's, nuts, etc.
And how about this:
A Soap Dispenser! Since I got a raise this week, this is what I'm getting to treat myself!
