I love love mason jars! There is just something homey and beautiful about them. I now use them as my drinking glasses and love to decorate with them. I have seen mason jars featured in weddings, parties, and used as centerpieces. You can buy colored ones or even paint them yourself and the ideas for using them are endless. I have put together a nice little collection of different ways they are used and I’m amazed at how creative people can be with mason jars.
