Vintage Thingie Thursday

My second Vintage Thingies Thursday entry…

I love the old blue/green Ball jars. I love the color, the shape, and the versatility. You can pick them up cheap at garage sales and thrift stores (I have gotten most of them for under $1 each).

I use them to store stuff...


I use them to decorate both at home...

and at our lake cottage…

I even like to use them outside as tea light holders...

You have your old jars displayed so well. Great ideas. I love them too. They are really cute and bring a little coziness to the room. Love the idea of using them as a tea light holder. Very cute.
