I have been thinking about Mason Jars lately… mostly because so many of my friends on facebook seem to be canning right now. I don’t know how to can. Do I want to learn? Not sure yet! I have fond memories of my mom canning all sorts of fruits and vegetables, and loved running to the garage to grab some canned peaches to pile on top of our icecream for dessert. But I do take after my mom, in that I can’t stand having anyone in the kitchen with me, so, no, I never learned how to can. I’m sure I could learn now, but like I said, not sure if I want to! Do I??
I do know, however, that there are a ton of other uses for Mason Jars, and many people seem to adore Mason Jars. I just thought of an idea myself that I’d like to use them for. But for now, here are some other uses to inspire you!
1. Antique Mason Jar Lights
This one is actually hooked up with electrical. Very cool. You could also turn it upside down, and just put in a tealight. Grab a bunch, and you’ve got romance!
2. Mason Jar Storage
How adorable. I love this idea!
