Mason Jars

Last summer I bought a set of mason jars with hopes of filling them all with garden goodness.

I spent an entire afternoon blanching, scoring, peeling, chopping, boiling.....all in the name of canning. And I got two and a half jars of the most delicious tomato goodness that has ever crossed my lips. 

Two and a half jars.

Which left me almost a full set of mason jars that have been sitting on our garage shelf. 

I finally got inspired to put them to good use and love storing my dry bulk goods in them.

So pretty.

I love how they are functional and beautiful.

I know I'm not unique in using mason jars in this way, but I still wanted to share. In case some of you have mason jars sitting around that you just don't know what to do with.

Put them to good use.


  1. I love mason jars!!! I use them for all kinds of things and there is something just so pretty in their simple functionality!

  2. I also bought mason jars to start canning...and haven't gotten there yet! I think maybe I should start repurposing my jars too - thanks for sharing your pretty pictures!
