I have been trying to collect old mason jars for a while now – i can think of a ton of things to do with them – too many in fact! So why i am just barely getting around to using them now? Who knows! But i have had this idea in the back of my little head for a while now and now that i refinished my coffee table (will be posting that soon) i thought it is as good as time as any to put them to use :) And i love when an idea turns out just as i had imagined.
These are three of the blue mason jars that i have been able to find. Two of them came from goodwill for .50 each and the middle one i just got a couple of days ago from a house that my dad and brother were cleaning out – they clean/gut out houses that have been foreclosed on, i get so much good junk, don’t be jealous :)

Here is a larger collection of normal old mason jars. I cant get enough of these – they are my new love :) A few of them have the original old zinc lids – very cool.
I bought three blue trays from Home Again (a consignment shop here in Utah) a couple of years ago and use them at different spots in my house. This is the perfect little resting place for my bottles along with a $10 bunch of flowers from Costco. I am seriously loving it and am loving the little bit of color that it brings in to my otherwise very neutral house. And for $10 worth of flowers of every couple of weeks it will be easy to keep up – i would pick flowers from my VERY LUSH, flower filled back yard but that’s another story/project for another day :)
I didn’t dye the water just so you know, the flower must have done that…
I will be linking up to these fun parties
**And i know that i promised to show you a couple of updates to the laundry room, but i kind of forgot! I will get to that in just a couple of days**
