BLUE MONDAY/FOR THE LOVE OF MASON JARS



first I'd like to thank sally over at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ for hosting Blue Monday, be sure to stop by & say hello & meet all the wonderful bloggers who are participating in Blue Monday this week
I"m not sure when or why I started collecting the antique mason jars, perhaps it reminds me of my grandmother , they relate to fond memories of canning & even trying my hand at it , I still love to can, but barely have time to make jelly which I make sure to set time aside for, cause I love it so but not in my antique jars ha!ha! ok ok on with the pictures lol





ha!ha! fooled ya! ok just had to do that LOL! ,come back here, I'll find them LOL, they hang out on the hutch in my kitchen
















they hang out with my buttons in the kitchen beside the hutch

























they hang out on the shelves of my dresser in the bedroom & even across the top of the dresser



they even hang out in the bathroom ~lol~ there's even more waiting for that perfect spot ~lol~ thanks so much for visiting me today & letting me share my love of mason jars, be sure to go by & visit al the wonderful participants over at Smiling Sally's, you wont be disappointed
