Weighing in on Ball Jar Love: Purple Heritage Jar Giveaway!


I’m weighing in on Ball Jar Love and the introduction of Purple Heritage Collection Ball Jars!


 I find myself craving color and flowers and in need of a little pick-me-up when it’s cold and gray this time of year.


 Purple Heritage Collection Ball Jars provide a little bliss and are just what the doctor ordered for the Punxsutawney Blues and 6 more weeks of winter!


These purple jars are the last in the 3 year series of Heritage Collection Jars. 2013 marked the 100th anniversary of the development of a series of jars, designed by the Ball brothers, each intended to be better than the one before.


1913 saw the launch of the first true “Perfect Mason” jar, followed in 1914 by the “PERFECTION”, then the “IMPROVED” introduction in 1915.


 These limited edition Purple Heritage Collection Jars feature period-inspired purple color and embossed logos on front and back.


I filled my jars with flowers for an early spring bloom in my Potting Shed.


And found bundles of white and purple Stock at Trader Joe’s for $2.99.


In case you’re in need of color and a little bliss too, I’m sharing some Ball Jar Love and giving away 2 sets of 6 Purple Ball Heritage Collection Regular Mouth Pint Jars.


Made in USA, (hooray!) these vintage-inspired purple jars maintain the same quality, performance and structure as current Regular Mouth pint jars.


Ideal for your home canning needs or as a collectible item or flower fix :)

    A perfect pick me up for my morning of freezing rain in Nyc. I would use for flowers like you!

  3. February 9, 2015 at 5:36 am

    Such a romantic color! Love your scattering of bulbs too Mary! I’d probably split them up and use them for a little bit of everything… The purple would have perked up my light colored banana jam, they make gorgeous vases and I can see them holding all kinds of crafting supplies in the studio! Thanks for the fun give-away and pretty pick-me-up on a wet, wintery mix morning:@)

    This post made MY day! Stock is one of my favorite flowers – such a delightful fragrance – and these are really beautiful. And I love the purple and white plate, the little embossed metal pitcher and the vintage spoon with the “garden on” inscription. The entire post is lovely and a real day-brightener! The purple jars are beautiful, too. I would use them for my homemade blackberry jam. (I am down to the last jar of the 2014 batch and plan to give it to my son for Valentine’s Day.) I follow you via email and will post this on facebook. Have a blessed day!

    Mary, I already have my purple jars filled with forced spring flowers–yellow daffs and white tulips, hoping to chase away the winter blues here too! They look nice with the last two years of jars and I’m planning to use them all for an Easter table. I was sad to hear there will only be the three years of special colors! I hoped they would continue. Love your purple transferware :) Linda

  12. February 9, 2015 at 6:33 am

    Yes please enter me. I love these and have they other colors from last year. Would really love to have the purple to add to my collection! I also follow you on facebook.

  14. Jennifer
    February 9, 2015 at 6:37 am

    I follow your blog and love it! I would use one of the jars in my craft room, I think white buttons would look great in the purple. I could see some Easter eggs in another. The rest I would use for the original purpose and put homemade pear preserves in them. I do this project each year with my Dad using pears from a tree that has been on the family farm for more than 100 years! Thanks for the give away.

  15. February 9, 2015 at 6:41 am

    P.S. I was so excited I didn’t read it right. I would use them for flowers or make candle jar as I did for Christmas gifts this past year. They were so cute with wires and berries around the top and a candle inside.

    Since I don’t have a potting shed, I decorate my corner China cabinet for the seasons. I would use them for that. They would make a wonderful addition for Lent, Easter, & Advent, Fall which is right before Christmas. Flowers, shells, river rocks, candles (I use a lot of battery operated candles), small terrarium are fun too. I follow you on Facebook also and have shared this page as well. Thanks again for another give away. Something to look forward to during the last week’s of winter.

    I bought some hurricane lamp tops and metal wick that can be used for light. I actually love to light them for dinner on my kitchen setting. I just love decorating and changing the jars for my kitchen table. This color would look lovely in my Tuscan, grape themed kitchen! Would love to win,

  36. February 9, 2015 at 8:04 am

    The purple jars are so pretty, Mary, especially near the purple transferware plate. I love them filled with flowers, as you have done. You’re so generous with your lovely giveaways. You make us long for Spring time.

  38. Joy
    February 9, 2015 at 8:09 am

    I enjoy purple three seasons of the year but especially during springtime when my tall beautiful purple iris are in full bloom. Bringing the color indoors compliments the yellow, soft green and lilac accents throughout my living areas. The lovely jars filled with fragrant blossoms would add the perfect finishing touch.

    February 9, 2015 at 8:09 am

    Love mason jars for their versatility, and purple just makes them more fun to use!!

  42. February 9, 2015 at 8:14 am

    I saw how to use jars for an Herb Garden, jar garden. This is how I would use some of them. They would be so lovely mounted on a whitewashed board hanging in the sunroom. Wow I so look forward to Spring and gardening.
    Mary, I follow you on facebook & pinterest.. Your Blog is so inspiring. Thank You..

    February 9, 2015 at 8:16 am

    Oooh, these jars are fun! I’d run right out and buy some stock to put in them. I cut pussy willows yesterday and put them in blue and green jars. The purple would be a wonderful addition.!! They will be gorgeous with zinnias this summer and great for gifting paperwhites next Christmas. I so enjoy receiving your emails.

  45. February 9, 2015 at 8:17 am

  46. February 9, 2015 at 8:19 am

    What is it about Ball jars that is just so appealing? I just LOVE them and have them in clear, great for painting :) and blue, so pretty and green, fun for spring and summer flowers~ I like to use the wide mouth pint size for cookies and crackers, they stay fresh for weeks. I will have to have some purple ones now, wouldn’t they be great for an outdoor Easter tablescape or picnic! I love them styled in your potting shed with flowers, bulbs, china and all your pretties! What a lovely giveaway Mary!

  47. February 9, 2015 at 8:23 am

    As this cold and gray day envelopes me your beautiful jars are a breath of the spring to come! I love how the light shines through them so I would love to create beaded wire hangers so I can suspend them over my kitchen window and fill them with beautiful fragrant blossoms!

    I love your designs as always and especially now with seeing your Spring creations as the winter blues are setting in. Are your flower bulbs real or faux? I’ve been looking for some realistic bulbs to decorate with but haven’t had much luck. Anyone have a source of where to buy?

    • February 9, 2015 at 1:02 pm

      Hi Kathryn, The bulbs are real, I don’t know of a source for realistic faux ones unfortunately.

    I love this color! I’ve been a collector of the vintage turquoise jars for decades. We use ball jars for drinking glasses in our home and this color would work great with my green tablecloth. I would also use them in the bath of our lakehouse in which I am using lavender and white to store qtips and cotton puffs.

  69. February 9, 2015 at 8:50 am

    I would love to win the giveaway! The purple ball jars are gorgeous! I wouldn’t use them for canning or storage, they are to beautiful to be hidden away. I would use them just for flowers so everyone could see and admire them!

    Ball jars are iconic of country living. There are so many ways to use them. Spring flowers, summer utensil holders for bbq, red maple leaves in fall, and fairy light lanterns in winter. And most importantly, they provide year round smiles.

  80. Cherryl
    February 9, 2015 at 9:10 am

    February 9, 2015 at 9:23 am

    Your post was the first one I checked this morning. Another cold, gray winter day in snowy northern Illinois. I love the beautiful purple Ball jars. I think I would use them as Margarita glasses to help my friends and me get through the rest of winter! After that possibly they could be scattered around wedding reception tables at my daughter’s wedding, just randomly with fresh flowers. Thank you for your posts, such inspiration!!!

    Every 3 months or so I have a special dinner party for a group of prior co-workers. These ladies are so special that I make every effort to make each party memorable. I think about my spring celebration last year and these jars would have been the perfect addition to my tablescape. ( I would love to share a picture). My dining room is a regal purple and I can envision using these for flowers from my garden such as lilacs, lavender, purple balloon flowers, hydrangeas and the list goes on. They would be a beautiful vessel to showcase and share.

    What joy to open my email on this cold, cloudy day in Michigan. The marriage of these rare purple canning jars and fresh flowers is so refreshing. I would love to see these in my home with fresh, sweet smelling roses. If I was one of the fortunate winners, I would share these lovely jars with my daughter and my friend Nancy……filled with some sweet treat of course.

    Definitely flowers but also special prizes (filled with candy, inspirational notes, and flowers) for Relay For Life contests. Purple is the color for survivors and as the Event Chair, I’m always looking for ways to motivate my teams. Also, purple is the color for our local high school…oh the possibilities are endless. Thanks for the contest.

    These canning jars are gorgeous, if canning jars can be?! I love canning and making my special hot pepper relish so I guess I would fill the jars with my homemade delight and share with family, neighbors and friends…but hide one away just for me :)
    By the way, I made your beautiful cardamom and pear loaf yesterday and it was wonderful! the whole pears surprised everyone and they loved every bite. It’s a great recipe and I will definitely be using more cardamom in the future.
    Thanks for all you do, your website is a joy to visit.

    Love your blog! You are so talented, so many great ideas! Think I would use these beautiful jars mostly as a vase for flowers and candles. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win!

  104. February 9, 2015 at 10:20 am

    These are SOOOO beautiful! Love purple! I would use them for flowers & storage! Thanks for the opportunity!

    I would use these to hold home made raisins, dehydrated from our Red Reliance grapes, & I would put one of the ceramic coated “grape” rings from the collection of fancy lids Ball put out 10-15 years ago on top. They look beautiful together, & pretty enough to leave the jar on the counter as a decorative accent, filled with yummy goodness.

    I just made purple fascinators for my friends and me to wear to the Downton Abbey exhibit at Wintethur and a purple ball jar would be perfect to use for displaying them. So I would give each of my friends one of the jars and use one of them myself to display my fascinator.

    I love the new Ball jar color! I would use these in many different ways…….A vase…….to hold tea on kitchen counter……to hold silverware and napkin with my lilac floral table setting……As a section of a tree made out of all colors of Ball jars…… :)

    February 9, 2015 at 10:41 am

    The jars are a beautiful color of purple. I would use them for flowers and adorn my Easter Table this year–they would compliment my Easter tablecloth. I need to get myself to Trader Joe’s to see if they have stock–I love the fragrance!! Thank you for your inspiration and talents.

    First time to your blog and I think that I will subscribe since our taste are very similar. I have been on the hunt for these jars because I want to make some soap dispensers for my bath and kitchen and then have on hand for birthday gifts for friends and family. I have been using Ball jars for display for years.

  114. Kathy Waterhouse
    February 9, 2015 at 10:41 am

    I will run to Trader Joe’s to get some stock…they always have lovely flowers…and I keep my canary seed in a large blue mason jar…but flowers are perfect for showing off the beautiful glass! Your site is so lovely…thank you.

With wire around the bottle neck hanging the candlelight would be lovely. I would also use them for my homemade raspberry jam from our raspberry bushes. Where can I find them???

    I have a beautiful set of dishes – service for eight of Pastoral Davenport-Amethyst by Arthur J Wilkinson – Transferware. These were purchased three years ago at the Brimfield Antique Show in Massachusetts. The dishes were displayed in a wooden hutch in a very dark shop but I was blessed enough to have found them. They have a farming pattern. The dinner dishes are different from the soup bowls, dessert bowls have their own pattern, etc. I believe they date back to 1840. Truly a find! I just found amethyst candlesticks to go with the set in the Verona Virginia Antique Mall and I have Amethyst goblets from William Sonoma which I have had for a while. Your lovely jars would go at each place setting – with some raffia around them, supporting a miniature rake to compliment the pattern – and inside each jar I would place the lavender napkins and silver eating utensils. PLEASE – PICK ME! PICK ME!

    I can see those 6 jars filled with white daisies in a row down the center of my Easter table!

  126. February 9, 2015 at 11:40 am

    PICK ME! PICK ME! PICK ME! Can you see me stretching my neck, arm & hand held as high as I can (hand wiggling for attention)? Purple was my Mother’s favorite color. Anything that reminds me of my Mother in any way is dear to me. These limited edition purple Mason jars could have multiple uses (as I read the posts above, got even more ideas) and every time they caught my eye, my Mother would most certainly come to mind & heart. Thank you for your blog with its great ideas & inspiration; I read it daily. Happy Monday!

  127. February 9, 2015 at 11:43 am

    The potting shed is such an inspiration! I will use the purple ball jars in my bathroom for storage, in my kitchen for flowers, and in my sewing room for buttons….And will bring a couple to my daughter, since purple is my grandson’s favorite color.

  128. February 9, 2015 at 11:46 am

    We have a small lavender farm and I have already been dreaming of these beautiful jars! I would use them to store our dried lavender bud now and as lovely vases this summer to hold bouquets of fresh cut lavender! Perfect for dried bouquets too…I love your posts and they always start my day with a warm smile, no matter the stormy weather. I follow you via email and am happy to share this post on Facebook. Thank you so much for offering such a delightful gift!!

    Purple is my favorite color and I had no idea they made these!! I’m not a fan of blue at all and I know they came back out with those. I would use them for lots of things. It would make using my food savor canning jar storage so much fun!!

  130. February 9, 2015 at 12:01 pm

    These purple jars are just delightful! I would definitely use them to display flowers from my garden. I can picture them with my sweet David Austen roses burgeoning from the top!

    Hi – I just love the purple Ball jars as purple is my favorite color :) I would use them in various ways, of course for flowers as you did. I could also see them in my spring decor along with the blue and green Ball jars filled with small eggs or jelly beans. I have been an email follower of yours for quite a while now, and love your blog :) Happy to share the giveaway on Facebook with my friends as well :) Today’s blog is especially inspiring towards spring as it is pouring snow outside – thanks — I can almost smell the green grass and flowers Hugs, Dorinda

  136. February 9, 2015 at 12:27 pm

    Mary, the purple jars are perfect for spring, and their early arrival in the potting shed offers the hope of spring. ‘-)
    I wish for a real visit some day. Your potting shed is full of interest. My eyes study every detail. Crushing on that vintage silver pitcher among other delights. You amaze me with your creative styling……the sprouting bulbs, vintage pieces, and fresh flowers. This post is most certainly a breath of spring!
    I would use those darling jars to hold flowers…..Texas wildflowers or wisteria blooms.

    They are beautiful. I would use them for flowers and to decorate at Easter time. The color just shouts Easter. But I also think I would share them with my older sister. Purple has been her favorite color as long as I can remember and she would be so excited to use them in her beautiful lavender bedroom. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to try for some. Have a wonderful day. I am new to your blog and I am enjoying it so much.

    I would use them for flowers and decorating. I wouldn’t want to use them for canning. They are too pretty.

I have lids that make a ball jar into a dringking glass with straw so the would be used for sure. My freezer strawbery jam would have a home in these also.

    Purple Bell jars remind me of amethyst colored glass, which my cousin MaryJane collects. She is 80 this year, and has more energy and vitality than most 40yr olds, and looks no older than 50 or 55. She would enjoy these so I would gift them to her.

  159. February 9, 2015 at 4:54 pm

    I didn’t know their were more colors. I would absolutely love purple jars. I would use them for decorating.

    P.S. Can’t you use your powers of persuasion to get a Trader Joes in the LKN area?😉

    • February 9, 2015 at 8:18 pm

      Hi Tardevil, If only I had powers of persuasion :) My SIL and I were talking yesterday about how Trader Joe’s needs to open up in LKN. There’s talk they’re looking at a Cornelius location and I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

  175. February 9, 2015 at 6:15 pm

    Oh my goodness…your pictures are beautiful…and the Ball purpose jars are lovely. I would love to use them to help decorate our new home which is freshly painted. The jars would look delightful in our two rooms painted “Sea Salt” green and I would fill them with flowers. Thanks for sharing. Now I want to make a run for Trader Joes and get some stock. Going over to Facebook to share with folks there too.

  177. February 9, 2015 at 7:44 pm

    If I had 6 lavender jars, I would use them with wire bales to hold candle lights sitting in an inch of sand and small shells and hang them from the brackets on my porch. Streaming ribbons will blow in the evening breezes and doubly secure the wires at the brackets.

  198. February 10, 2015 at 4:39 am

    Hi Mary
    I live in Victoria Australia and today was about 105’F as we are still in summer. We are in a friut growing region of the Goulburn Valley with andhave a famous preserving company in town called Shepparton Preserving Company or SPC.
    I know I am not eligible for the prize but however we would preserve some local peaches for when our winter arrives and a peach crumble would warm us up.

    I came across your site just the other day and love your dog’s.

    Wanted to send you some Aussie sunshine to warm up your day.

    All the best spring won’t be long now.

    P. S my website is still under construction

    What a pretty color, Purple!!! I would, of course, display those beautiful herbs and flowers from the home garden. What a perfect color for Spring and Summer. I have a spice rack, large cabinet with my dried herbs. I use the old blue, green jars for storing those herbs. A purple one or two would be great in that cabinet. :) And flowers (yellow daffodils) in the bay window at Easter, can just see them sparkling in the sun light!!! Hope I win!!!

    OMG Mary, these are gorgeous. I gasped when I opened my email and saw these purple jars. I didn’t think Ball could out-do the Blue Jars, which I have a few of, but now I see they did out-do themselves. I love this color it so pretty, unusual and classey! If I were one of the lucky winners, I would definately display them with flowers. I would also share a couple with my daughter who has been trying to collect all things purple in her kitchen. I follow you on facebook also and I usually read your posts more than once so that I don’t miss any detail in any of your pictures! You are such an inspiration and I look forward to every post. Hugs to you and thank you for such a great give away!

    Good Morning! I just found your blog and will follow you on F.B. and add your blog to my favorites! It is absolutely beautiful! If I win the giveaway, I would use the purple jars in my bedroom for flowers. I love purple. I may even spread them around the house to add in my décor. They would absolutely be added to my Easter décor. Love and thanks for the giveaway.

    One jar would join the rest of my collection which is proudly displayed on the thorp of my kitchen cupboards. There are vintage bail jars with glass tops, vintage jars of different sizes and colors with zinc lids lined with ceramic, quilted jars and the newer blue and green heritage jars. Everything from teeny jars right up to gallon size. A lot of these were given to me by an aunt who canned her farm veggies and fruits back in the 40s then passed them on to me to can my garden with them in the 70s & 80s.

    I would use for a bridal shower for my soon-to-be daughter-in-law! Her wedding colors are eggplant – I love Ball jars, but these would look especially pretty at either her shower or used at the rehearsal dinner! I adore your potting shed & am working to create one of my own! xoxo! Cindy

    I love mason jars. Didn’t know about the Heritage collection until now; I must live under a rock! I would do the flowers; yours are perfect as I love stock-so old fashioned & fragrant. I might have to stop at TJ’s on my way home from work tomorrow to see if they have any at my location. Thanks for sharing; I love your pooches and your blog !!!

    First I love what you do. I find that I can revisit your site and see something that I missed the first, second, or third look. I would love these jars. First, one would become a “tea” jar, as I need hot tea all the time in this icy, snowy weather.
    Imagine having that bit of cheerfulness along on my school bus as we make our way thru snow covered roads. Would share with my daughter who is a Ball jar maniac…..ending up with fairy lights, or bath salts, or flowers. 30 years ago mother gave me a bunch of transfer ware plates…mostly blue and white….but, one plum one as tucked in the group and I have rarely used it, Now I see your idea of displaying with the purple ball jar perhaps with white lilacs.. Would so love to win……just like everyone else! :)

  230. February 11, 2015 at 11:29 am

    i would fill them with flowers for i mid winter boost…i would line them up and look at them…i would put them with my little white stoneware pitchers…i would drink out of them in the summer while sitting by the pond…i would fill them with cookies at christmas…fill them with easter eggs…fill them with white buttons in my quilting room…where would one stop as they are soooooo beautiful

  231. Lori Ryan

    I would use them to give away my special homebrew libation. They would make beautiful gifts. Of course one would stay in my tight little paws for beauties like you pictured. Many of my garden flowers would look great against this color.

  234. Ruth

    Thank you so much for the wonderful give away. As a gardener (flowers, veggies and fruit trees) I use canning jars for both flower arrangements and canning. I have several vintage jars, including a purple one with a zinc lid. I love purple and they would be beautiful to display my many pink roses.

    I love your blog. You are truly a gifted woman.

    I have loved the previous colored mason jars, but this purple color is amazing! I would use it to display fresh flowers among a beautiful tea set my friend gave me for my birthday, that just happens to have various purple flowers for the china pattern.
