The Perfect Jar: The Mason Jar

Mason jars have been my new favorite thing. They remind me of baking soda because their uses are endless! Lately I have been using them to drink out of and I swear they even make my water look fancy. Mason jars add a nice touch to everything with little effort. I was thinking about how many things me and my family have done with mason jars and I had to put them all together into one post. Many of these ideas are referenced on my sister's blog, Melissa's Greetings. She is much better about documenting all of the fabulous crafts that we do in ourspare time.

My brother in law even engineered his very own firefly lights and captured them in mason jars! has an article on more great uses for mason jars. I also loved this tip from about how many, if not most, blenders can be used with a standard or wide-mouthed mason jar.
