I have always loved Mason jars. There is just something about them. I have really taken to the old antique blue ones. You will find lots of mason jars in thrift stores. You will most likely find them without the tops but those are very cheap to buy at the store in the canning section. Here are a few of the blue ones that are antiques. If you are more partial to the blue ones then the fun of antique shopping begins which is a whole new world. You can generally find these in antique stores for around $5.00. You can buy the regular ones in the thrift store for approx $.25-$.50 cents.
These are very very old blue glass mason jars which makes them that much better BUT depending on the project you want to do the new ones may be better. We all know that traditionally mason jars have been used for canning and making jam (at least that is all I have ever known) and an occasional cute hot chocolate gift at Christmas. I am going to show you some other great ideas that they can be used for.
I really need this for my bathroom. Great idea from www.lizmarieblog.com
The blue really looks great with the yellow. Make sure if you paint them that you don't use the old valuable ones!

So do you see the vision now? Next time you are at the Thrift Store and you walk by the section with Mason Jars you will see them in a whole new light! Pick a few up and create something new or use one of these great ideas.
BABY FOOD JARS!
Luckily, I have access to lots of baby jars now with my grand babies living in my house. My husband wanted me to save some for him to use in the garage for nails, screws, nuts and bolts, etc......A light bulb went off in my head and I wanted to know what other things I could use those little bottles for instead of throwing them away. So, here is what I found.....
Such a great idea if you have little items you need to store.
