I just love glass jars, and it's so neat to find different uses for them. A soap dispenser and a chandelier are two things I'd like to make for our home someday.
Using mason jars in the kitchen for storage is perfect! My mother-in-law does this and it's so nice to see what you've got in each jar, plus the glass doesn't leech out like plastic storage containers do.
We used a TON of jars for our wedding...I used the big green glass jars for centerpieces and we used pint sized jars for drinking glasses for our guests. We still use jars for all of our drinking glasses at home and I love it. The other day, I dropped an old jam jar we used for a glass and it shattered all over the floor. I just swept it up, threw it away, and found another jar to replace it with. Piece of cake! (This is especially helpful since I am somewhat of a klutz when it comes to glassware.)
I remember the lady at Bed Bath and Beyond trying to get us to register for crystal for our wedding, and I told her that I was more of a mason jar kind of girl. :)
Enjoy your weekend! Landon and I are staying home and enjoying a weekend of nothingness. I can't wait!
