Just Plain Pretty!

There's just nothing prettier . . . I'm a little obsessed with them . . . anywhere I run across them, I stop and stare. I imagine what they've been used for over the years and what I can use them for today.




PERFECT Mason indeed!

I love these too, gal! Can't get enough of them. They just make me smile. I have a nice assortment now, and some rarer lighter ones, too.

Have a delightful day!

Oh, I love old blue Mason jars too! I have "seaside" potpourri in 3 different sizes.

Just found your blog over at Fraker Farm. Looking forward to reading more of your posts!

I Love these Old Blue Jars, My cousin is using them as Patio lights this year, tops wrapped with wire, sand inside & then a candle.... Can't wait to see Her Patio after Dark!

They are pretty. We were lucky enough to have found a box of them in my grandmother's garage. I love the color of blue they are.
Love,

I love those blue-tinted ones too, Mandy! They are getting hard to find around here... flea markets and antique stores want a war pension for them!

Oh I so agree. I love that color jar. I have them everywhere!

I love blue canning jars! I have quite a few of them now, and I love each and every one of them! They certainly are "plain pretty!" Hope you had a nice Mother's Day!! ~Karen
