Jars. They are sold in our supermarkets containing all sorts of things. They can be re-purposed for a multitude of uses. My mother-in-law fills her antique jars with sand and places tea light candles in them. A simple combination with such a warm and romantic feel...

In the spirit of living simply, I think the re-purposing of jars is such a neat idea.

  1. I love old canning jars and use them to decorate in my house too! I have one that says 1858 on it - it's not from then but that is when the patent was established on this particular one that I got from my husband's grandma. Best, Lisa

  2. Thank you so much for this lovely blog entry. I LOVE canning jars!

  3. Oh so pretty. I just love the blue ones! Right now I am using a mason jar to fill with change. :o) A cute bow around it.
