Mason Jars in the Basement

I am cleaning out my basement and pulling out my Christmas decorations at the same time.  Like soup and sandwiches they seem to go together.  This year I am trying....note trying, to be more methodical about it, purging and organizing as I go.

I came across a box of mason jars I brought back from Indiana when my sibs and I were clearing out my family homestead this summer.

Serendipitously, I came across this item on EMMALINE BRIDE outlining 17 CHRISTMAS MASON JAR IDEAS...some of which are really clever...and not too cutesie.  I do so love the attractive practicality of mason jars, don't you?  The image here is from their site....PEPPERMINT HOT COCOA IN A JAR. Guaranteed to elicit a smile.

I think I might need to recruit some of those jars in the basement for just such a purpose.


  1. During the Thanksgiving holiday, my DIL and I made gardener's hand scrub and put it in mason jars. Fill a jar 3/4 full of sugar and add Dawn with Olay liquid dishwashing detergent to the consistency you like. It is a lovely pink color and really works! We made enough to give as gifts to our gardening friends. I love mason jars!
