    I would use them to store items like sugar, baking soda, salt, etc. in the kitchen. They would look so pretty on the counter top. I hope they come with lids!

    If I win, I’ll mix us some super dooper lemonade and fill each jar and then put in a bucket of ice so it will be dreamy cold.

    Oh, my goodness! I think I would be using these gorgeous jars for EVERYTHING! ♥♥♥

  12. February 26, 2014 at 6:06 am

    I would use four of them for refrigerator pickles to give as gifts, and the other two for flowers for me!

  13. February 26, 2014 at 6:18 am

    Good morning! Great idea for ball jars . My husband and I do canning but never thought of using them for flowers. I use my ball jars to serve dessert and of course canning. Now I have another use for them, my garden flowers!💐

  14. February 26, 2014 at 6:26 am

    I follow you through e-mail! I would use the green jars for flowers!They would be perfect for an up coming bridal shower hosted by my son’s girlfriend for her cousin. (that was a mouth full)

    Thank you for this beautiful entry. I live in the northeast……….the farmer’s almanac said we would have a very cold winter. Who can doubt the old ways? We experienced one of the fiercest. When the wind didn’t blow, it was really quite beautiful. Fresh snow gives a clean, pristine look to the world. While we have several more weeks of it, I would use those beautiful jars to usher in Spring a bit early. I would force tulip, hyacinth, daffodil, jonquil bulbs and sit them in my sunny kitchen window. We would watch them everyday as they unfolded into their beautiful self’s. It would remind us of the promise of Spring and what lies under the cold, dark earth waiting to come forth. Thank you for your kind offer and thank you for bringing beauty to our homes with each of your entry’s…you have a gift and sharing it is a gift. … sally jo

    A few posies in a Ball jar with a ribbon around the neck of the jar is one of my favorite ways to brighten someone’s day!

  19. February 26, 2014 at 6:50 am

    Hi Mary. Such cute jars, I would use them for flowers and maybe for sweet tea in the summer.

  20. Denise

    I would try and copy you exactly with the flowers, on my patio, blending with my large collection of vintage watering cans. Love your creativity. I am an email subscriber.

  21. February 26, 2014 at 6:53 am

    I would use them with candles. I light them every night. I also can my own food from our vege garden. These would be pretty to use. Love your blog.

  22. February 26, 2014 at 7:01 am

    I love the color green. I’d use them for flowers … can never have too many flowers! Lovely post.

    Love this new anniversary color. I would share the set, 1 for a friend who has a collection of blue, 1 to each of my daughters-in-law, 1 to my sister and 1 to my niece. I think they would compliment most any flower we put in them. I love seeing your posts pop up in my email box, and following your blogs.

    WOW–that green really pops and does put me in the mood for Spring! I have lots of ideas how to use them–for flowers like you did, for food gifts, for fabric strips rolled up–also a gift for sewing/quilting friends. SO pretty! Thanks for the chance to win.

    I would add pastel candies to the jars and glue a chick or bunny to top. I would then give them to my nieces at Easter. (Next year, I would use them for St. Patricks Day!)

  30. Tardevil
    February 26, 2014 at 7:07 am

    They look so pretty filled with flowers. I’ve looked at Walmart and Target, locally (in Mvl), but couldn’t find them. Would you mind posting your source? I follow on Facebook. Thanks.

    • February 26, 2014 at 7:15 am

      Hi Tardevil :) These are the best price I found, but I’m sure they will be flooding the stores (Target, Michaels & Walmart) soon like the blue jars did.

  31. February 26, 2014 at 7:07 am

    I love your beautiful Potting Shed and thank you for sharing such beautiful pictures. I look forward to your post via e-mail and Facebook. I would love to have some green Mason jars…love them!

  38. February 26, 2014 at 7:28 am

    Oh so many ways to use Mason jars that I don’t know where to start, so I will list a couple of favorites!! I love to use Mason jars when entertaining. I tie a pretty ribbon around the neck of the jar and display my flatware in the jars at the buffet. This always gets nice comments from my guests. In the summer I have been known to serve cobbler in small Mason jars. Mason jars speak to my childhood memories of watching my parents can green beans, tomatoes, and various other vegetables from their garden. And, I LOVE the anniversary color. Great blog entry! I am so in love with your potting shed!!

    I would use them at a spring bridal shower I am hosting for a friend. In fact, I might just go out and buy some today! Thanks for sharing another beautiful post!

  44. Susie Bostick
    February 26, 2014 at 7:48 am

    I would use them also for flower, canning, in the kitchen for nuts doggie treats, bird food and tea lights. They are beautiful…..thanks for sharing.

  45. Carolyn
    February 26, 2014 at 7:49 am

    I would use them for drink jars for my grandchildren complete with a colorful straw!

  46. February 26, 2014 at 7:50 am

    I am an email subscriber! I would use them as a vase as in your lovely post and to hold silverware when we have a dinner or lunch gathering at our summer place!

  47. February 26, 2014 at 7:51 am

    Of course I will pick-up a couple sets of each size…looking forward to the Quart size since the Blue ones were only Pint sized. One set…I would tie burlap and ribbon around for fresh flowers…maybe pack some salads for a summer picnic…lots of possibilities. My main objective would be to gift these beautiful jars filled with flowers, baked goods, perhaps a plant to pot later. I luv to bless those around me…especially in any type of mason jar. Oh! Fill with Homemade Vanilla Extract…perfect!

  50. February 26, 2014 at 8:05 am

    Good Morning, Mary! I am longing for Spring too! Love those green jars, i have seen blue, but never green. I would fill them with flowers, or mini Irish Soda Bread Muffins to give as gifts.
    I am a subscriber, and will go find you on FB.
    Thanks for the chance!

    I echo all that’s been said!!! I use many of your darling ideas and love that you set the stage for me. I am constantly looking for new and fun themes for our lake house. I follow you every day and love every minute!!
    I think food and flowers are the way I would use them most…..but would be cute with sand and candles in them too!!
    Thanks, Mary!!

    I would use them for flowers as you have. Love the color.

  58. February 26, 2014 at 8:19 am

    What beautiful jars these are. I already have the blue, and they’re so pretty used as vases for my garden flowers. I would probably do the same with these green jars. I am a follower by email and on Facebook. Love your styling!

  59. Kay - North Central Texas
    February 26, 2014 at 8:19 am

    I would use the new green jars in a variety of ways; to hold sweet spring flowers, drinking glasses, as a votive. I’ve been watching for the green Ball jars but haven’t spotted them yet in stores. I also shared your post on Face Book.

    February 26, 2014 at 8:22 am

    I am an email subscriber and read your posts every morning with my coffee. My first thought was using these for St. Paddy’s Day – you wouldn’t need green beer!!! Definately would use them through spring and summer for flowers from the garden with pretty polka dot ribbons and jute! Thanks!

  61. February 26, 2014 at 8:30 am

    Hi Mary,
    Isn’t the green color so pretty and Springy? I’d use them for flowers and for packing a picnic salad and also for serving drinks. I’m an email subscriber of yours already.
    The flowers from Trader Joe’s are beautiful. xo

  62. Joy
    February 26, 2014 at 8:32 am

    I’m making paper flower topiaries from florist foam balls, pins and scrap paper cut flowers. Your green ball jars would be the perfect holder for one of these! OHHHH! I can send pictures if I win! Thanks!

  63. Denise
    February 26, 2014 at 8:33 am

    I would use some of the jars with flowers to brighten up my living room and i would give a couple to my special friends with flowers in them to brighten their day! Then I would us them in some of the great ideas I read here!

    February 26, 2014 at 8:33 am

    Your jars are so pretty with the flowers, and that is how I would use a few by filling with flowers for dear friends, April showers bring May flowers!!

    Hi! Every fall 6 of my closest college friends from wa-a-a-ay back get together for a long weekend. I would fill these precious jars with goodies as a remembrance gift of our forever friendships and fun together.

    Your blog is always a visual treat!!
    Thank you.

    Mary, I have been an email subscriber for awhile now and I look forward to your posts everyday. It’s actually Spring here already in Florida so I have lots of flowers to show off in these beautiful jars. I have many jars entwined in my decor already and these would surely be a lovely addition. Thanks so much for all the love that you put into your blog and also for this beautiful give away!

    I love all your posts and awesome pictures!
    My daughter is hosting a country wedding shower for her friend and would love to use the jars for center pieces and decorations. Then they can be shared with the bride to be or as favors for others in the bridal party.
    Thanks for your daily posts!

    Especially crazy about that green — and “Perfection” ~ I would use them for all the things you mentioned — plus in ways you haven’t even shown us yet! :) (AND I live in Charlotte, so the postage wouldn’t be too much ;)

  70. Bonbongirl
    February 26, 2014 at 8:40 am

    Of course I wouldn’t use them for what they’re intended for! The jars remind me of a soap dispenser I received from B&BW a few months ago, and I think I’d like to copy the idea and make soap dispensers as gifts (Easter, Mother’s Day, Birthdays,Thank-you, etc.). After all, planting season is just around the corner! yay!

  71. tracy holland
    February 26, 2014 at 8:45 am

    I would use them for flowers and greenery and set them at each place setting and then allow guest to take them home!

    February 26, 2014 at 8:47 am

    I love the green color. It would be a good match for my ‘lodge style’ home. I want to try the antipasto skewers and the salad in the jar that I’ve seen you make. I would also use it to sprout a sweet potato because the vines are so pretty.

  73. franki
    February 26, 2014 at 8:51 am

    Well…since I love in a log cabin…on a lake…I use “jars” for…everything. I store my oatmeal, rice, apricots, prunes, raisins, etc. I would use “these” on my washstand/bathroom sink to hold brushes or…..franki fmparde@gmail.com

  74. Judy in OKC
    February 26, 2014 at 8:53 am

    Lovely green color! I would have to use a few for flowers. They would be great to use in my scrapbook studio. Filled with buttons, charms, etc.

  75. February 26, 2014 at 8:54 am

    I follow by email! I would like to use them on my new fence in my back yard. I would wire them to the slats, fill with life giving earth, and plant herbs and flowers in them. I think it would be a sweet touch to my backyard! Thank you for the opportunity to win some!

  76. Rebecca Dexter
    February 26, 2014 at 8:56 am

    My grandson is getting married and June and the bride to be is crazy about mason jars and is using them in the wedding. Her colors are pink and green and these would be lovely at the head table (with burlap runners) filled with Queen Ann’s lace and pink peonies. She would love them and they would be a wonderful keepsake of her wedding.

  77. katwell321
    February 26, 2014 at 8:57 am

    These are the perfect addition to a St Patrick’s Day birthday celebration I am planning. I would use them for drinking glasses and for holding flowers for the centerpieces. I just love the color!!

  78. February 26, 2014 at 9:00 am

    Would love to use them for an Easter brunch and then all summer for iced tea. Love your blog.

  79. BamaCarol
    February 26, 2014 at 9:00 am

    First I would probably just pet them and look at them. :-) Then I would put flowers in some and use others to display my vintage cutlery on the sideboard in the sunroom. Then they might end up holding buttons or trim in the sewing room later on. I love Bell jars and use them all over the house.

  80. February 26, 2014 at 9:06 am

    OMG just love the green!! I’m going to use them for my St. Patrick’s Day Party and fill them with Homemade Irish Cream for your Home Made Winter post for my guest!! Thanks for all your inspiration!!! It has truly helped me make it through this cold wintery winter :)

  81. February 26, 2014 at 9:08 am

    I love mason jars and collect them and green is my favorite color so these are perfect. Flowers would look beautiful in them which is what I put in a lot of mine. I also would use them to hold some of my sewing items such as buttons.

  82. Pat
    February 26, 2014 at 9:10 am

    I host an annual St. Patricks day party.. Pints of green beer.
    Quart jar candle lumineras lining the walkway, oh give me green jars and the ideas are endless.

  83. Robyn
    February 26, 2014 at 9:12 am

    Love the green….I would use them for flowers, especially now while dreaming of an early Spring!!! Some pretty yellow bell(forsythia) branches will be just gorgeous in my little sunroom!! I shared this on my FB page and I am an email subscriber…..Just read about your big move! Can’t wait to see the new landscaping around your beautiful potting shed!!

  84. February 26, 2014 at 9:17 am

    Good morning Mary….I would use these jars to decorate my table for St. Patrick’s Day…a special day in this household!…I love the dreamy pics of these jars in your garden cottage/shed…pinning, pinning!

  85. February 26, 2014 at 9:17 am

  87. February 26, 2014 at 9:24 am

    You used stock!!!! It is one of my favorite flowers, SOOOO fragrant! I would use them several ways; for flowers of course but also for salald in a jar or ANY picnic food and also for storage!!!

    Hi Mary, I’m saying Yes Please to an early Spring although much more snow is forecast for us soon. The green of these jars is beautiful! I use these for mixing salad dressing, keeping leftovers in the fridge, holding little temporary collections like marbles, pebbles and shells, and of course fresh flowers! Everything except canning! Your shed is looking so pretty all dressed up in green, pink and purple. I’m on my way to Trader Joe’s to see if I can get some flowers too! Linda

  91. Wynema B.
    February 26, 2014 at 9:31 am

    February 26, 2014 at 9:49 am

    Hello Mary,
    This was a lovely way to begin my day! The Stock is just beautiful! I believe these jars are much too special to use for canning. They deserve to be honored with beautiful flowers or delicious treats. I would also use them to hold wonderful drinks to share with friends and iniate good converstion about good times past.

    Well, with St. Patrick’s Day around the corner I would tie some cording or twine around the neck and tie on some festive shamrocks to the ends. Then use them for green beer, green layered dessert or green arrangement for a few ideas.

    I would use them to decoration around my home and possibly for canning something I have always wanted to get into.

  108. February 26, 2014 at 9:59 am

    Love these! We are looking for them to use to hold flowers to line the path on the way to the gazebo for my daughter’s upcoming wedding…her colors are green & white and these would be perfect…..hung on short shepherd’s hooks….maybe some baby’s breath and some white flower’s tied with some jute twine or green/white curly ribbons…..what do you think??

    I start African Violet plants in clay pots to which I attach “wicks” and place on top a water-filled glass water vase. This way the plants can drink what they need. Your jars would look terrific sitting on my window sills filled with the promise of coming blooms.

My favorite color is green, so these jars would definitely be used as vases on my mantle once spring and summer get here, and a couple would be saved for flatware holders during summer BBQ’s; not to mention happy tablescapes!! Thanks for the give-a-way opportunity! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

    I would love to win these beautiful green canning jars. How would I use them? Generations of my family have used canning jars for all sorts of things..some uses…hold nails & items that need a home…hold paint thinner to wash brushes with..live in the South so using a canning jar is not new or a fad for us! It is a way of life! Drink tea, water, vase as you have for flowers, collect bugs punch holes in lids for kids….It not only is a pretty item but an item well used in this household…These beauties would be treated special no paint or thinner in them..lol…Please enter me in your giveaway! Thanks!

    I would fill them with the daffodils that my mom planted and remind me of her every spring when they bloom. They would look beautiful lined up down the center of my farm table in the classic green ball jars!

  145. Laurie
    February 26, 2014 at 11:07 am

    I would use them in several different ways, I love to drink out of ball jars, I have a country kitchen, and they are adorable, I’ve used them to put candy in, on my kitchen counters and cupboards. Also to put flowers in, I love the recipes for pasta salad, and it looks great in mason jars. Hoping to win this time.

  146. Sharon
    February 26, 2014 at 11:07 am

    These jars are just too pretty to use them for canning! I would use them more for decorative purposes than to can. One or two would be used for flowers, while another couple would be used for growing some herbs. I may just save “collect” one of them and the final one, well. I guess I’d use it as a drinking glass. :-P

  147. February 26, 2014 at 11:11 am

    What a fabulous giveaway!! Everything is so beautiful!! I would use them around the house and porch with pretty flowers!! :) Thanks for a chance to win!

    More snow is on the way for the Kansas City area but your ball jars sure could hold some beautiful spring flowers. Thanks for the giveaway.

  161. February 26, 2014 at 11:41 am

    If I won, I’d use mine for everyday drinking glasses at my dining room table AND for the coordinating containers for a centerpiece of flowers, on my table that changes with the season. Spring would find them filled with forsythia braches and daffodils (and a wild Lupine or two from my garden bed); in the summer they would be graced with herbs and daylilies and fall they would be filled with Red Oshier Dogwood branches and poufy flowering stems of my ornamental grasses; winter would find them filled with evergreen boughs and our wild Michigan holly I collect from the wetlands. The Small House Under a Big Sky colors are terra cotta, cream, rust and forest green and these green glasses would be perfect in my home! Thank you.

  162. February 26, 2014 at 11:52 am

    I hadn’t seen the green ones, Mary. They are perfect for the potting shed. I need to stop by Trader Joe’s and pick up some blooms. ‘-) We were in Container Store last week, and they now carry the Ball jars with the cute bee design. I picked up a graduated set of three for flowers. Will look for these new green ones. Your potting shed photos make me want to putter in the garden, but it’s cold and raining today.

    I love the Spring Green color! I would use the jars in various ways. Flowers & I’d put rolled up wash cloths in a jar and set on my purple bathroom counter-top. I’d put an array of plain and peanut m n m’s candies in another jar. I’d use one to hang in the garden (with a candle in it) I’d also think about what I’d can in the remaining jars…hmm sweet cherries!

  190. February 26, 2014 at 2:04 pm

    Gorgeous stock. I bet it smells great too. Wow, I love the green Ball jars. That was a clever thing to do as an anniversary edition to make them green. They will be a hit and already are as your giveaway. Very timely also for spring and St. Patrick’s Day!
    I was here first thing this morning and something took me away from the computer so I didn’t get to comment. I would have said, ” What a pleasant and delightful post to start my day reading.”

  191. Ellen
    February 26, 2014 at 2:30 pm

    Well, green IS my all time favorite color… And stock, oh my! one of the best smells in the world. (Maybe only topped by scuffing through a piney wood on a summer day.) But I think when ever my jars were’t holding any blossoms or fern fronds, I would likely show case them with my antique blue jars I discovered in a stone/dirt basement of an abandoned house in the Bay Area. I would be waaay too stingy to fill them with summer bounty. For that, plain clear ones! (I wonder is my California TJ’s has and stock today.. now I am craving that elusive smell.) PS, my lovely daughter lived on Lake Norman for awhile. (She is back home now.) It gives me fond thoughts of your dock, especially the recent snow laden pic’s! MY! (California is facing a record drought.) Cheerio, E

  192. Yolanda W.

  193. Robin

    I would set a spring table with various colors and heights of spring flowers in the jars. I would intermix them with my collection of McCoy flower-shaped vases, all set at different heights on cake pedestals on a green leafy tablecover. Love mixing different shades of green! For dishes? Adams Ironstone “Ming Jade” pattern, celadon green with pastel flowers and butterflies. For flatwear: Whiting’s Lily of the Valley.

    Thanks for your tablescapes. They give me such inspiration!

    Oh picture me jumping up and down, I love these green jars!!! I love love love the blue ones, but boy do I need these babies asap! Flowers most definitely, all colors and kinds, and candy for St. Patricks Day, and summer cocktails in the garden, and catching fireflies, and candlelight picnics and Christmas of course!!! I can’t believe how a couple of these flower filled jars transformed your potting shed to a spring stage! :)

    I would use them one thousand different ways! I would use them as centerpieces on small round tables for a spring party with candles, flowers and raffia. I’d use them with flowers along with my vintage blue jars on the mantle filled with flowers. I would use them on my desk with pens and pencils. Oh, the posibilities. And I can pick them up! Love to come to Charlotte!

  210. February 26, 2014 at 4:16 pm

    green is my favorite color and I would like to use them for storage in my RV. we sometimes have trouble with critters and these jars would help with that. I also like to pack my salads for picnics in jars. that way they stay fresh! and occasionally they would be used for flowers on our table

  211. Martha
    February 26, 2014 at 4:17 pm

    I think I would fill them with jellybeans for Easter, and put daffodils in some, too!

  212. February 26, 2014 at 4:36 pm

    They would look great filled with spring flowers (it’s coming) sitting next to my antique blue ball jars. You’re such an inspiration!

    When my lilies of the valley come up – hopefully soon! – I think they would be especially pretty in these jars.

    Love the green jars! Last year I bought the blue jars & used them for indoor candle jars with glass marbles on the bottom & jute string bows around the neck. I also use them for candies on the counter; so pretty & so easy to access! I like using some older zinc lids for those jars. And blue-n-white checked ribbon around the neck & tied in a bow. I would use the green ones as vases for the wildflowers found around our OK lake house that my little granddaughter & I gather. Green jars, green stems!

  216. February 26, 2014 at 5:57 pm

    I think I would put them in the window and let the sun shine through them. They are gorgeous.

    We would use them for drinking glasses! and for bouquets! We drink out of canning jars all the time and I love using them with striped or polka-dotted paper straws. I follow you by email. I love stock — it smells so good.

    Hi— I have the new blue ones and old blue ones– green ones would be beautiful just sitting in the window sill with the sun shining through them!

    I love this new green jar. I would definitely use for flowers all year long, iced sweet tea, lemonade, freezer strawberry jam, fresh grated parmesan, and when I open a can of jalapenos, I can use a jar to keep the leftover peppers in.

    I would love to fill these jars with white flowers and arrange them on the table for St. Patrick’s Day. I also will decorate with them and the blue anniversary ball jars (a Christmas gift from my mother). And of course they will get the chance to store some food too!

    These jars are beautiful! And my husband’s favorite color, too! I’d love to decorate with them….flowers and whatever else looks pretty in them (with ideas from your website). And also as drinking glasses (a la Pioneer Woman) and other attractive storage…like a pretty holder for dried pasta, spices, etc.
    Love your web page!

    Mary, So happy to see your potting shed back together and looking like its beautiful self again. Hope the move is settling in with you. I just love stock (one of my favorites), it’s fragrance is wonderful and the flowers so delicate. Also wonderful to see your lovely seed box again. That piece is truly a treasure. Thanks for the giveaway. They are always so much fun. If I won I would use the jars for picnics. I just love all your ideas for using jars that way.

  255. February 27, 2014 at 4:42 pm

    I would use them in my kitchen decor since my kitchen is green and white and I already have some green depression glass. I would probably use them as a vase as you have or maybe even as drinking glasses, but either way, they would definitely be on display.

  256. Ann

    Hi Mary, As always, everything is beautiful and full of inspiration! I love the pink and purple flowers, pretty tole tray, the bird’s nest, and especially the green Ball jars. I would love to considered for your giveaway. I would use the jars for flower arrangements, or for a candle holder. That color is just so springy and cheerful!! Thanks for sharing. :)

    Visiting from Home Sweet Home party; hope you have a great weekend!

    In my dream world I would have a potting shed like yours! I am in love!!!! What can I say – it is amazing and looks straight out of Veranda Magazine. I would have to make a dessert in those lovely green jars that would set off the green color. I just bought 18 of the blue ones to use for family get togethers. These are stunning!

  262. February 27, 2014 at 6:03 pm

    I love the Ball jars, especially when they are filled with colorful stems. You may have noticed I love using jars and bottles for flowers.

  266. February 27, 2014 at 8:03 pm

    Beautiful, I would probably use 3 for soups and such and use the other 3 for decorating, possibly with flowers or something similar. Would Love them!!

    I looked for a box of these at Walmart today, but didn’t find any. I love them and would use them for flowers as well as for entertaining. I love the sweet smell of Stocks. They look so pretty in your jars. I am a follower and now like you on fb. Thanks for this sweet give away!

  274. Marcy M
    February 28, 2014 at 11:35 am

    Love the green jars! First I would use them for flowers and candles. Then when canning season rolls around and a good sterilization of the jars, they would be used for canning tomatoes, pickles, green peppers, whatever we have a bounty crop of. It is hard to imagine warm weather right now, when we are buried here with snow in MN. Thanks for the gorgeous pictures and posts!

  275. Paula DeTemple
    February 28, 2014 at 4:12 pm

    I just posted you on my facebook page! :) Absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE your pics! So pretty! I have been looking all over for these same green Ball mason jars. I can’t find them anywhere. I wanted to use one as a soap dispenser in my half bathroom accompanied by another one in the same bathroom to hold flowers. Then, I wanted to use one or two in the kitchen for flowers. Then, another one in my little girl’s bathroom (Anastasia, she’s 5) as a toothbrush holder accompanied by a matching soap dispenser. I had it all planned out if I could just get my hands on some green ones. Unfortunately only clear and blue in the stores around here. Thanks for the inspirational pics! Hugs, Paula

  276. February 28, 2014 at 4:26 pm

    These are beautiful! We can only get the blue special edition ones and I’ve wanted these for my green sunroom. I’d fill them with flowers and desert branches. I’d also use them for ‘salad in a jar’….a great make-ahead lunch!

    I would use them for many different things! I love to use them as vases as you did, would probably fill one with white buttons because I have a collection of old mason jars with sewing/art supplies and have wanted one of these to use too! I also love to use them for picnics..we often pack a picnic lunch in the summer and go explore for the day. Thanks for the opportunity! karen….

    Flowers ~absolutely flowers!!

  291. March 1, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    I think I would use them for flowers, cutting roses from the garden to enjoy inside. They would also be just right for a batch of homemade applesauce.

  292. Nancy Bailey
    March 1, 2014 at 7:26 pm

  300. March 2, 2014 at 3:53 pm

    I have never seen these! They are a beautiful color. I would use them to hold informal flowers arrangements, mainly. Although I might use them to store dry food which I want to be seen, on a counter, like another commenter mentioned. I would not, however, use them for canning except under extreme circumstances because I have dozens and dozens of plain, colorless jars for canning!

  301. March 2, 2014 at 4:03 pm

    Well, I’ll be honest here…I am NOT a canning kind of girl! Not a canning bone in my body! When I look at these, I see nothing but vases!!! :-) So that’s what I’d use them for: vases on a wonderful summertime tablescape under our old oak tree in back. Or maybe for sipping that wonderful raspberry lemonade recipe I saw on Pinterest this morning. That would really make for a stylish yet old-fashioned treat! Either way, the homespun “Mayberry R.F.D.-esque” quality of these canning jars is wonderful! I would just love to knock a few of my snobbier only-crystal-will-do friends down a couple of notches by serving cocktails in these!!! :-)

    The green Ball jars are beautiful! A few would go well with a green piece of stained glass in my kitchen window, with vintage pottery I collect. As for how I would use them, endless ideas are swimming around my brain. From being the perfect size to make fresh infused waters for our long hot summer, las my morning smoothie, to use as vases, displaying seashells, pretty kitchen, bath, craft and sewing storage, candle holders…They are so lovely as gifts too, packed with the ingredients of a favorite recipie or treat!
    I’m really looking forward to your posts in my email!

  308. March 3, 2014 at 10:58 am

    Love those green jars! My daughter is graduating from college and we are having an outdoor grad party for her. These would be perfect for table centerpieces and for holding vortices. Thanks for the chance.

    March 4, 2014 at 11:01 am

    I would either fill with blue, white, aqua & green sea glass collected from beach vacations and display in kitchen window where the light will make the colors twinkle OR top each with one giant white hydrangea bloom from the garden to use as centerpieces down the center of a rectangle table! Just thinking about it makes me smile!

  319. Cathy Miller
    March 4, 2014 at 11:38 am

    I love these! I would use them now for daffodils and other springy flowers on my Easter brunch table, in the summer with fresh herbs from my garden, in the fall with sunflowers in them, and pack them with homemade salsa made from tomatoes and peppers from the garden for Christmas gifting!

  320. mackenzy09
    March 4, 2014 at 12:57 pm

    You always have such a flair for everything. I would use these jars for all the things you mentioned. And, I love green!!!

  331. March 6, 2014 at 2:18 pm

    I’m a big fan of the blue ball jars, now I’m big fan of the green! I would use for flowers and serving! Thank you for the giveaway!

    On an Easter buffet with my Grandma’s green glasses, beautiful plates and Easter baskets… how charming they would look with snipped coral-colored azalea flowers. If I could part with any, I would fill them with my spiced apple jam to give as a fall surprise …um, I might even put one in my office for keepsakes and trinkets. Green is my color! Love these jars!

  334. March 6, 2014 at 5:24 pm

    After reading all the above comments I can’t really think of many “New” ways to utilize these pretty jars. Vases, picnic lunch packing, garden shed decor, Christmas Decor, sewing and craft supply storage… on and on. Just using them for canning seems drab by comparison. I would love these jars and they would make a lovely addition to my home!! Thank you for all the wonderful ideas and beautiful posts. The picnic ideas are my favorite!!!

    Hi Mary,
    Well, first I would have to ask my Sister Beth if she would like one or two for her personal bath …she is a complete nutcake for anything green and her bath is so green every plant/flower she puts in there grows like crazy…..green bath/green thumb go together.
    The remainder would be mine or I might gift one other jar to someone special. I would use them for St Pat’s day =put a string of tiny lights in them to use as lantern on table, for Easter =as a vase with fresh flowers tulips/daffodils, I would use them thruout the summer but especially in August when I decorate with Sunflowers. In fall, Of course, Green is a staple Decor Color…. I like your idea in past posts of using beautiful moss in vases and pots to decorate….so imagine on of these filled with mosses, twigs, lovely spring leaves and tiny lights =I would put is somewhere in the family room and use it as a Spring Mood Light in the evening. My Mother (God rest her lovely soul) was a canner. She an my father had a LONG LONG history of putting up everything they grew in their garden in Ball Jars. She would always insist on genuine Ball Jars and lids/rings ONLY. She is smiling from Heaven now watching me post this, I am sure. She was also an artist and used her chipped Balls jars to hold her Paint brushes or to store Paint tubes or other painting supplies. Thank you for this post, brought back so many lovely memories for me. God Bless. Carole M.

    These green jars would look awesome with Forsythia! I can’t wait to cut some – it’s always the first sign of Spring for me! Great drinking glasses for a St Patty’s table. I loved your collection of St Pat ideas :). How about for a casual holiday brunch? Year ’round goodness from Ball!

    Living in a Chicago we seem far from spring! I feel like I can’t wait any longer to open windows hear the birds and see all the flowers bloom in my yard. I can not wait to put Lilly of the Valley’s, tulips and daffodils in them. I have beautiful hydrangea’s, white daisies and salvia that I love to put in ball jars and they also are beautiful with a candle and burlap ribbon. Thanks for all your wonderful pics it keeps me day dreaming!

    Can we enter more than once? I just read your posting with all the St. Patrick’s Day recipes and would love to try them all. I wish I weren’t single so all the calories could be shared! Would love to win these green Ball jars. The blue variety just don’t go with my decor!

  347. Janice F

    Would probably use the jars in many different ways. In my jewelry studio to store vintage buttons, ribbons or other findings; in my home for flowers and in my kitchen to store candy for the grands!

    I just saw the cutest idea for green ball jars on Mason Jar Love. She actually painted her jars, but the project would be even easier if the jars were already green. She glittered them with gold shamrocks! So cute. I am a subscriber and a follower on facebook and pinterest. Love your blog.

  355. March 7, 2014 at 2:20 pm

    Everyone should have a set of those green ball jars -if for no other reason than Saint Patty’s Day. It also should be said they are great for canning too…..Love your ideas! And wish I had every set of dishes you show off on your tablescapes. (I am working on it – LOL)

    How’d I miss this? I’m telling you Mary, work is interfering with EVERYTHING and that ain’t no blarney! The green jars are pretty (they make automatic green beer don’t they:@) and all of your ideas are great! Please toss my name into the hat-thanks.

    I am thrilled to find your exquisite site! Being a mountain girl I would look forward to using these 100th anniversary jars for gatherings of wildflowers & fern, as drinking vessels for lavender lemonade& berry iced tea, or canning utensils for our tomatoes, bread & butter pickles, apple butter, apple sauce, etc. These beauties are also perfect for burning candles indoors or on the patio. I love giving food gifts, layering ingredients for brownies, cake, or soup, the emerald packaging would be delightful. The thought of one filled with river rocks, & cedar branches, allium, fruit branch blossoms, or forcythia (now blooming) makes me smile. Part of my wine cork collection from special events would suit in green.The prospects are exciting! C.H. Grants Pass, OR

    Those are amazing jars. I love the color..I’ve seen the blue ones but not green. I love your site, so beautiful and fresh. Going to try some of the Irish recipes for St Patrick’s celebration

  359. March 8, 2014 at 4:21 am

    Love the color! Flowers of course, but I decorate and use with candles. Started with Jingle Jars at Christmas; Hearts of Fire for Valentines Day; Pot’s of Gold for Saint Patrick’s Day. I collect antique mason jars which are light shades of blue.

  361. March 8, 2014 at 12:59 pm

    I have discovered a soulful garden of inspiration in your blog, subscribed to your email, and shared it with my sister!
    The garden gazebo with a six armed chandelier is awaiting these mason jars to adorn them with multi colored tulips for my best friend’s birthday luncheon in April and cream and green hydrangeas and coral roses for Mother’s Day in May,…. all from my garden…… and twinkling candles for starry night dinners with friends during the summer.
    My mother and I planted 80 tulips on her 80th birthday and she just passed away at 91, so I am awaiting this special rebirthing of our tulips this Spring.

    I would use them for drinking glasses and also for flowers.

  363. March 9, 2014 at 6:19 am

    I would fill them with homemade granola, and give them out to friends and family,

  364. March 9, 2014 at 3:52 pm

    I would use the beautiful jars in many ways. Some days I may use them to store nuts, or yummies. Some days I may make mini cheesecakes with them. Other days I may use it to drink detox water or lemonade out of. During christmas I may place lights in them for decoration. They may someday be used to hold doggie treats. In a couple of years once we start having children I may use them to store crayons, marker, and other various crafty things.

    I would definitely make a lamp out of one jar. That way I could put the green ball jar lamp on my mantle with my blue ball jar lamp. The rest of the jars I would put on my open shelving in the kitchen to store tea bags, sugar, etc. I might try to squirrel away one or two to use for homemade Christmas gifts down the road.

  386. Sue Peterson
