The Simple Beauty of Glass Jars

There are so many different sizes, shapes and colors of glass jars. My inclination is to be the opposite of a pack rat when it comes to most things. But I find excuses to get more glass jars and  keep them around for a while.

Especially Bonne Maman jars. When I first saw them, I fell in love with the design. I buy the preserves and jellies, because they are delicious, but there is always another goal too. Reuse!

People have remarked and asked where I got the jars and I tell them to just look in the jelly aisle in their favorite grocery store!

The only work you have to do to get the jar is to eat the contents. It takes as long or as little time as you want and is very tasty work. Then just wash the jar and scrape off the label. It's pretty easy to do and you're being green!

I know 3 women who collect beautiful glasses. One, now deceased, lived in a very modest apt in a public housing project. Her apt and glasses were gleaming. Another is a wealthy woman who has her glasses displayd on glass shelves in her dining room windows. The final has collected beautiful glases from thrift shops. She displays them in a built-in china cabinet grouped by colors. All beautiful.
Thanks for sharing.
