Have I mentioned how much I love Ball jars? I love their simplicity, their usefulness, & the way they have with stood time. In the spring & summer when I use them to hold fresh flowers, I love the way the sun catches them, especially the blue ones. They remind me of growing up and all the canning my grandmother would do. Mason jars are many things to many people, but lets face it, their versatility keeps them coming back again and again. I thought I'd take a minute today and showcase some of the great ideas I've seen across blog land that high lights their simplistic beauty.
This first one is one of my favorites. You really can't go wrong with blue mason jars and silver chain. The fact that it's a light only makes it that much better.

This next one also incorporates lighting and makes use of the clear jars. I could absolutely see that above my dining room table.
Okay, I know another light Stacey? Yes, another one. You just can't go wrong with a jar and a lighting kit. This simple pendant light would work perfectly above a sink.

This next one you can find all over my house. So simple, yet so classy. There's nothing like a little blue jar love to brighten up a dreary sink.
A little something for your sweet tooth maybe?
And did you know......

The top of a salt container can be cut down to fit in the lid of a mason jar. Good to know.
While we're on the 'did you know' here's another one for you.
Yes, that's a mason jar being used on a blender.
The versatility of these little little jars can be astounding. I hope I've inspired you to take another look at a common item. Now I'm off to find some more jars myself.
Until next time!
