Aqua Blue Mason Jars

I am on the hunt for these Ball Mason Jars.  The pretty blue ones.  I found my first two at Round Top Flea market in Texas.  Did you know there are different shades of the blue? 
(or did I get ripped off with some fakes).  

Did you also know they have numbers on the bottom, I am thinking for the month you would have "put up" something.  That way you could keep track?  If someone knows the reason let me know.  I have 2, 6, 8 10 and 11. I didn't know about the number thing till cleaning the three new ones I got this weekend at McKinney Trade days.

Also I now have straws all over the floor from turning over the straw holder jar to look for it's number!

Here is my little collection, hmmm should I search for a set of 12? Or I think I am done.

Mamaw and Gram would roll over in their graves if she knew I spent $2.00 for a jar!

I"m linking with The Single Nester, Turquoise Tuesday and Donna at Funky Junk Interiors.


  1. I have seen lots of those jars at the flea markets here. They are nice looking. I picked one up and thought where could I use this and put it back. You have a nice collection started.

  2. I was down at the trade days this weekend too, will work that into a post sometime midweek with other 'misc stuff' I did, and I picked up a jar and almost bought it for five bucks, but then I remembered I asked to be locked away if I buy anymore mason jars....and I was worried there were people willing to do just that, so....maybe you got it? ;o) I love those jars soooooo much, and I'm sure I'll slip one into my shopping cart again someday (soon). :O)

  3. Love these jars and you have a great collection {I think you should go for a set of 12!} Stop by the Sunday Showcase Party if you get a chance! I am always looking for mason jars and you have some lucky finds!

  4. As my stomach is grumbling right now, I have to see these delicious treats first!!~ I love those jars, never ever see them though, must be hard to come by. And yes Lori you do go ahead and decorate with those plates, and I can't wait to see them. The plate hangers you get from Home Depot or Lowes....easy peasy!!~
