thinking again about canning jars

A year ago I was telling Debra that if she wanted any canning jars she could have some, because I had so many and knew I'd never have any use for them.  Now suddenly I'm using them - not for canning, but for my refrigerator pickles and my iced tea, which I don't have a nice pitcher for. (Actually, there was a pretty one at Salvation Army the other day, but two quarts of tea in a glass pitcher?  It would be so heavy - I didn't buy it.)

I'm not so inclined to be rid of them anymore.


  1. I use canning jars for lots of things, too. I have an old fashioned Ball jar with a wire handle that I use as a vase for wildflowers.

    1. Now that's something I don't have, but I love them.

  2. I have seen people make them into goblets! They crack me up every time I see them and I always think that I should splurge and get me a few!
