Mason Jar Love





Mason jars are not new-
Growing up, we weren't canner's but when I was first married, 
we moved next door to a canner.
I didn't really get the point-
Make your own sauce?
What's wrong with Ragu? , I asked.

Can corn and Lima beans?
Check out the frozen food section at Stop and Shop, I said boldly.

Little did I know, this gal had smarts!

During the cold winter nights, when I was heating up frozen meatballs 
with a big jar of garden style Ragu,
My neighbor was busy serving her family 
homemade sauce with their homemade meatball.

I never been a cook.
I do cook,
but begrudgingly.

Over the years, I have been known to make some sauce 
but there's always a jar of store bought in the pantry.

But, I do love Mason Jars.  I store pasta in them.
 Only because it looks cute.  They have chalkboard labels on them too!

I would much rather use mason jars for crafting.

Recently, I shared bridal shower decorations we made using these jars-


Pinterest has amazing mason jar ideas and thought I'd share a few-

Painted and used as centerpieces-


Patriotic!


Filled with yummy desserts and served that way-


Mason Jars are the go to for wedding decor,
showers, holidays, gifts, coastal decor and
so much more!
Maybe even some canning!!


You can find over 200+ ideas for mason jars here

Hope this inspires you to get on
the mason jar train too!

Take care, gotta fly-
