I was talking to my co-worker friend yesterday about how some people could decorate their homes with every day items such as old rustic doors and mason jars and it would look like something out of "Better Homes and Gardens". My comment was that I love those things, but couldn't really pull them off in a decorating scheme.
Evidently this got the wheels in her head turning because this is what she brought me after lunch! She only lives a block away from work so she can go home for lunch every day. She remembered these were in her attic and went up there and got them.
Bail wire or swing top Ball brand "Mason Jars". Perfect for a little country charm in our farmhouse!
There are 2 quart size ones, a pint size one and a 1/2 pint one.
I love the rust on the wire on this one.
My plan is to fill some of them with items that represent whatever season we are in. For Spring and Easter I could fill one with Easter eggs, a birds nest with an egg in it, or other Spring type items. Summer time would be seashells, flowers, etc. In Fall, there could be acorns, candy corn, Fall leaves, etc. At Christmas, the options are endless.

Maybe I can pick up some items from the dollar store to put one of these together later this week and show you here.
