mason & me
i use mason jars for storin just about everything and ever since jo and mini's daddy's party, find em my favorite vessel for the blooms from my garden. they are cheap and work well for someone like me....a pig who needs to see everything or else i forget i have it but at the same time i want everything to be neat and in it's proper place all the time. i like the wide mouthed ones best as the other ones are really too small to cram my hand into. i screw on the brass lid but leave the tops off cause i'd never take the whole thing off to get stuff out and certainly not to put things back.
they are great in case of last minute gift givin emergencies too cause i can just load one up with anything that looks nice and tie a ribbon around the top and i end up with a pretty lil present! one year mini and i filled batches of wm up with hot chocolate mix ans gave em as presents from old saint nick and we always use em for valentine's day - filled with conversation hearts. we use em often filled with sand and candles, all up the driveway or with wire wrapped around the mouths and hung from the trees. and of course they get worked really hard in the kitchen and pantry! in the doo dad den, where i have over a hundred stocked with doo dads of all sorts - visitors find studyin the contents quite entertainin...i must admit i like sittin and lookin at em from across the room myself! if you don't have any of these lil jewels be sure to pick some up next time you are passin by the hardware store - you can get a case of for nearly nothin and i am pretty sure you'll find more uses for em than you can imagine. i do believe they are just about the most versatile item i can think of!
