Mason Jars have been around a very long time…..1858 to be exact.
I think it's safe to say that they are here to stay.
Since I started blogging in 2012, they've been big in the home decor arena.
I've used them for years in our home. Today's blog hop is all about…
Decorating with Vintage Jars and Bottles
My sweet friend, Cindy from County Road 407, organized our blog hop. We do this vintage hop every other month. It's so inspiring. Be sure to check out Cindy's post in that she is first on today's hop!
If you are stopping by from Debra's blog then welcome! Common Ground is one of the first blogs that I started following. I love her French Country style!

Fabulous Uses for Mason Jars
- vase for flowers
- drinking glass
- house hummingbird food in the fridge
- homemade salad dressings
- hold silverware for a party
- hold baking items such as flower
- office supplies
- makeup brushes
Using mason jars for vases is one of my favorite uses.
I have a small collection of vintage ones that my mother has given me through the years.
Here I grouped 3 vintage Mason jars in varying heights. I love grouping floral arrangements like this.
You don't have to have a vintage jar to create a fabulous vignette. I'm honestly not sure how old this lidded Mason jar is. I created this vignette on the back deck of our beach cottage this summer with a thrift store tray that received a simple facelift. You can read all about it HERE.
Here is that gorgeous shaped jar being used on the patio this summer. You can see more of our patio HERE.
Here, I grouped 3 small newer jars to create this look for the screened porch. You can see the Patriotic Screened Porch HERE.
That one jar gets used a lot! It's perfect for a small bouquet of hydrangeas. It was paired with this horse that got a new look for a thrift store post. You can see it HERE.
You can see this look from my summer tour.
Colored jars are fun for a vintage look that is easily faked. Tall neck jars are perfect for just a few tall stems. That's all it takes to make a statement. You can see our Master Bedroom HERE.
Here is a simple tall jar. I've been known to save food jars that are large and have a nice wide-mouth. You can see more of this Fall Porch Tablescape HERE.
Smaller Mason jars are fabulous for drinking glasses. I have a set of blue and green in this size. We use them a lot, especially when dining outside. You can get my Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe HERE. It's sooooo good!
Small jars can also be used to hold water in containers that you may not trust! Here a small jar is nestled in this old white pitcher. I'd hate to have a leak on my coffee table.
Here is a newer jar set that has a wonderful vintage feel. I haven't used this in a while. I just may need to use it soon!
I hope you've been inspired to bring out any jars that you have hiding in your cupboards!
