this weekend’s theme

~ mason jars ~

Mason jars are all about vintage simplicity. When I see a mason jar project, I always think of repurposed to the highest degree with style. Mason jars are flat out fun!

So, on these jar lights… those with experience, don’t the jars get awfully hot with the bulb encased in the glass if not cut? Do tell. Any other tricks to share?

Let’s see your own mason jar creations in this weekend’s 3rd themed linkup!

  1. I have a few mason jars I haven’t done anything with. I can’t wait to see all the ideas from those who link up. You showed some pretty clever ideas that have me thinking…hmmm. Best party in Blogtown. Thanks for doing it each week.

  2. This is quite possibly the BEST blog entry that I have ever seen! And your last picture is to die for; completely adorable!! Love it!

  3. Hi Donna! I love seeing all the mason jars. I think of my mom’s canning the fruits and veggies in them when I was a little girl.
    Oh, I think I messed up and posted in the wrong category! I’m sorry!
    Be a sweetie,

  4. Great Fun!!! I LOVE blue mason jars, and use hundreds of the clear ones when I can in the summer and fall. I didn’t know anything about it when I married my husband, but he made me into a country girl. 🙂 Well, actually, his mom did the teaching-me-to-can part for him. 🙂
    LOVE your blog!! Your decorating is soooo GREAT!!
    Thank you!!

  5. Thanks for hosting, Donna! I actually had something for the special party!! I’ve been told they are mason jars but I’m still not totally convinced!!

  6. A-MAZING ideas to add to a home with Mason Jar Love!! I shared this & link party over on my FB blog page!! Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Thank you Funky Junk! You just solved my decorating dilemma!! I just renovated my kitchen(on a $1,200.00 budget to boot…) and most everything is now white on white, except for the furniture I haven’t yet painted or replaced, so I conveniently cropped those items out of the photos for the post! However, they are all aqua/blue-green….so if I add some blue ball jars to the all white part of the room, and put some more white accessories on the other side of the room everything will flow and still read as a white on white room with a few pops of color! Yay! I hope you’ll stop by and check it out!

  8. I love all of the entries with the jars. I love those jars…vintage, Ball, just regular canning jars…I think they’re an awesome way to store things. I decorate with them in the fall too.
    I just recently listed 2 vintage Ball jars in my Etsy shop and secrectly hoping I can keep them. Especially now after seeing all of these ideas. I have a turquoise McDonald one as well…that baby is mine 4ever!


  9. This weekend I made a pendant light out of an aqua Ball jar, and after doing some research, I went with an LED bulb. Most of what I read recommended low wattage (CFL) or LED. They’re spendy, but the GE one I bought is supposed to last about 8 years (based on 4 hours of use a day) and is guaranteed for 4 years.
