Anniversary Ball Jars

Thanks to my local Ace Hardware store I have some of the new anniversary jars from Ball. I am just tickled with them--they are so pretty!

The color is a little brighter than the ones that are 100 years old..but very similar.


When my husband came home from work and saw them he told me he was glad that I got some. He said he had seen that someone had special ordered them at Ace Hardware and he thought to himself, "Sandy would love these!". Well, he was right...and that person that special ordered them was me!

The blue just glows--looks gorgeous with candles in it too.



The jar reads....


1913-1915 100 years of American heritage Made in USA

I won't be painting these!


I have been continuing to enjoy having flowers in the house and cannot wait for my roses to bloom!



The weather is suppose to be nice this weekend and I am hoping to get some yardwork done. There is so much to do! I have been busy planting my containers and window boxes. I need to give a fresh coat of paint to the outside furniture and get everything all cleaned up from the winter. I'll be busy!

Thanks for visiting!

I just love these jars. My mother-in-law is giving me some that are really old. They belonged to her mom and she is glad they are staying in the family. I love love old jars. Can't wait to put flowers in them. I also use jars for bulk food.

I'm going to have to stop by Ace and see if they have any of these jars. I love them and didn't know there was an Anniversary jar.

Love how you put the flowers in them and use ribbon and lace to pretty them up even more.

Love your new jars and the one you painted. We had a little more snow this weekend so it will be a while before I can plant. Thanks for stopping by, Laura
