So why oh why did I decide to just "browse" at my favourite thrift store?
Of course, I ended leaving up with not 1 but 10 mason jars.
But I couldn't pass them up. Especially not for 69 cents each. New. I immediately pictured them filled with dried goods lining my kitchen cupboard (when I get back from India of course!). I just love the look of Mason Jars used for storage.
They are chic but unpretentious...if that makes sense. And they can be used for more than storage - they come in handy for a multitude of purposes.
And I mean seriously...how cute is this invitation? If I were planning a backyard, laid-back, nature style wedding I would totally consider using mason jars as my theme!
I also love the thought of them in an office on a desk holding a bunch of colured pencils. Seriously. Just google "mason jars" and you'll be surprised at the multitude of uses people have come up with for them.
Any of you have any mason jars? What do you use them for?
