Jelly Jars











Knowing my love for all kinds of old glass and jars ...
...Evi saved these old jelly jars for me when she was cleaning out.
Perfect for a summery vignette...

Hope you had a good start to the week...
It has cooled down a bit tonight...
...better sleeping weather...
Good night!

Perfect indeed. Love the lids on these as much as the jars themselves.

Gotta love dear ones that know what we like and keep an eye out for little treasures. Sweet jars. And I also enjoyed a stroll all the way down the page...past little blue bird dishes to dolls and teddy bears. Got a feeling of well being from reading 'My Symphony' yessss, that's what I want.
Tuesday Blessings ;-)

I really love the old glass, it seemed to have such character...or something. Looks great in the photos with all the treasures!

I have some of these, maybe newer, Ball and Kerr lids. Don't know how many people have spotted them and said, "Oh, snuff jars!" ???

Love what you've done with them. Tammy's trip memento is a great idea as well. My mom's got several odds and ends bottles for her trips.

The BLUES of your last post are AMAZING!!!

I need to find some of those at the flea market.
Have a great day my friend!!!

so there they were sitting in my dish closet, hidden away and now look at them! Only you could make them so pretty.
I also love the shield with the LA on it.
What a nice gift - all the way from France.
Lots of love,Evi

Thanks for sharing these ideas. I have all of my mom's canning jars. Can't bear to dispose of them. But I also have to find a reason to bring them out of their boxes in the garage. You are an inspiration.

Have a terrific Tuesday. ~Natalie
