Brilliant Glass Jar Ideas


I call them Ball Jars.  My friends call them Mason Jars.  What do you call them?

Glass jars are one of the most versatile household items ever created.  They have also been around forever and are still very affordable.

  2. I’m so inspired to make a soap dispenser because of you, and I really like how you have the product ads at the bottom for your readers’ convenience!

    Love that darling chandy and I agree glass storage is better than plastic any day. I always think food tastes like plastic when it’s used.

    Hi Julie. I, too, am a Julie, a redhead, and originally from Muncie, Indiana. Muncie is the home of Ball Brothers and the original Ball jar. I have had the privilege of knowing some of the Ball family through the years and have collected awesome Ball jars for many, many years. I am proud to say I have one of the original prototypes from back in the very early years. It sits on a shelf, in the kitchen, as the centerpiece of many “old” Ball jars. I am also a DIY gal and LOVE to decorate. So happy to have found your sight.
