I would like to pass this award to all or anyone listed on my blog roll ~
I LOVE JARS...........................
...even this old-timey, vintage canning jar that belonged to my momma. I just don't know what to DO with it...or PUT in it ????
What in the world would YOU put in it? Use it for? Remembering now that the mouth on this jar is not even large enuf to put your hand into it...
I can think of ALL kinds of neat things to put in this jar....it looks great with candy in it, too. 'Course ANYTHING looks good with CANDY in it !
These 2 thrift shop jars look pretty cute with pasta of all kinds in them....big mouths on both jars so they are "easy in and easy out".......
This one, minus it's top, works great for pecans or anything that doesn't HAVE to have a lid.....I love it's shape, too. Unusual and it, too, has a hugh mouth.
And, I just know this one was MADE to hold homemade chocolate chip, pecan cookies...which by the way, from the looks of things here, I need to take a
COOKIE MAKING DAY soon!!!!!!!!!!! Sweet Hubby is ALWAYS glad to hear about THAT day. There was never a doubt from day one what I would use this great jar for!!
Now, talented TINA at CHERRY HILL COTTAGE uses some of these old jars to hold flowers on her kitchen table but she has a darling, metal holder that holds her jars and THAT is what makes them SO, SO cute.
See, I have NO imagination....she or ya'll can come up with something really neat but I, on the other hand, am ready to take the whole kit and caboodle to GOODWILL, where, in turn, some vintage-loving lady will see them, nearly wet her pants, grab and run to the counter to check out, wondering all the time what kind of IDIOT would get rid of these "PRECIOUS, OLD, CHARACTER-BUILDING JARS THAT CAN BE USED FOR A MILLION THINGS.....WHY, JUST LOOK HERE...SOME OF THEM MUST BE HAND BLOWN. YOU CAN SEE THE BUBBLES IN THE GLASS" !!??!!??!!
I KNOW...I've been there....done that!!! :)
If you can think of something that would look great in these jars to make them usable, let me know, if you would.
ON THE OTHER HAND,......... If you........like me....see them as fairly useless, take a look around the store next time you are at a GOODWILL........
...............you will probably see 'em on a shelf there!
Have fun today!
