Another reason to love vintage Ball Jars

I'm obsessed with vintage Ball jars. Whether they're used to hold wild flowers, vintage buttons, or sugar and spice, they always look nice. I just love this look. With just a few strands of wheat you can turn your Ball jar into a gorgeous, inexpensive eco-friendly fall centerpiece.

I agree...they originated in Muncie IN, where I went to school (Ball State University, founded obviously by the Ball family) about an hour south of us in Fort Wayne. My uncle was actually the President and CEO of Ball for about 10 years...so I have a very soft spot for them besides their luscious aqua color and homey shape. :o)

I love vintage bell jars. I was once at a rental beach cottage that was decorated with 100's of them in a bunch of ways...and it was the only time in my life that I thought of actually stealing something (shame)!

Thanks for sharing!
