Hey y'all! I'm Skye and I believe in three things: living a simple life, running a savvy business, and having sound finances! I've been blogging and running my own business for over ten years now and I've gained a lot of knowledge that I am here to share with YOU. Learn how to perfect and balance these three aspects of your life and it will trickle out into every other area of your life, like your marriage, parenting skills, and relationships!
I could fund a small rebellion if I sold my Mason Jars. The problem is, I don't want to!
They have come from all different places. I bought 3 or 4 dozen to make Christmas presents with last year. I have used canned goods that have been given to me by family and friends. I decided that I wanted to be a gardener and grow green beans and jalapenos and can them, so I bought 3 or 4 more dozen. Then I inherited about, oh 20 or 30 dozen, from the husband's Grammie.
And, on top of that, I think they are breeding and taking over the garage. Every time I turn around there is another box labeled "Mason Jars - Skye" or "Canning Jars" or "Please Knock - We are Making Baby Mason's in Here."
It has become quite apparent to me that since I cannot even keep an ivy plant alive (which I have been told are the easiest plants to take care of) that I will not be a gardener. So, I will not be using these Mason jars to can bumper crops of tomatoes, refrigerator pickles, green beans or bread & butter jalapeno peppers. Yes - they are as delicious as they sound!!
So I scoured the internet at work (praying they don't fire me before I can quit) for pictures of Mason jars doing double duty. I was surprised to find that a lot of people out there share my obsession with them!
This is an obvious one, if you ask me. Candles make a really great addition to any decoration and the mason jars just give it a little extra character. I also love that these are in an old rusty milk container. Cute!
Buffet anyone? Put silverware already wrapped in napkins at the end of a buffet line, fill one with wet naps, use it to put the servingware in to save the tablecloth and minimize messes, toothpicks, the list could be endless!
Yes, this will be the first project my husband will complete once we get the wood working shop together. If you come to my house next summer, expect to see one of these hanging from my new porch roof. The end.
