  1. I love all the projects you found for Mason Jars. I'm especially fond of the painted jar on Etsy by LIT and the pincushion/button jar. Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. LOVE the second half with the useful or decorative purposes (too busy to cook ;) Again, thank you for gathering so many beautiful ideas. You are definitely my number one "go/to" place for fresh ideas! mary/wb

    1. Thanks for visiting Mary, glad you like the blog!

  3. I have to chuckle at the bird feeder becaue it really IS a bird feeder! It's original useis for chickens. :D

    1. Yes I know, they've been around a long time.

    2. Just came across your blog on Pinterest and fell in love with it! Very creative ideas. Hanging candles on the tree look fantastic! Will now follow all new posts. Thank you!

  4. Great!
    I think I'll find lot of inspiration in here!

  5. bravo...gets those creative juices flowing in me!

  6. How do I get the instructions to make the Mason Jar hanging electricl lights ?

  7. The generic name for these jars is “Canning Jars” they were made by three companies: Kerr, Mason and Ball. Some have wide necks and some were just regular sized. The wide necked jars were easier to use when adding large fruit or vegetables (peaches or skinned tomatoes).

    1. There were more than the three. I have some Atlas jars and have recently discovered Weck and Kilner. They are awesome! Bad news is that Kerr and Ball are both owned by Jardin which also owns the FoodSaver brand.

  8. First Blog I will follow, you are a sister of my heart. Mason Jars are a love I have have fixated on my whole life, I can't get enough of them. currently making a chandelier with my old Jars. Where do you find your electrical wire covers? I might make mine from burlab.
