mason jars

i've been lovin' mason jars since WAY before they were as popular as they are now.   i've always (since i moved out of my parents house at the age of 18) used mason jars as drinking glasses.  they're country.  they're inexpensive.  they're cute.  they're country.  they're ME! 

a few years ago some friends were over for dinner & their son (who is suzanne's age) said, "suzanne, why do you have canning jars for glasses?"  suzanne didn't know what to say!  she looked at him in amazement & finally said, "those are canning jars??" !!!!!   to her, she had grown up with them & they were glasses!!!

my mason  jar "collection":

 drinking glasses

 to hold the wooden spoon that pushes junk down the garbage disposal!!!

 waiting to be used for something! (usually holds silverware at parties, etc.)

 red white & blue!   the red one is a solid wax candle!

 another of my favorites - a really old one that i made into a lamp.  that's it's zinc lid...
