Old Glass Jars


When I woke up this morning, decease we had snow. What a surprise. Maybe I should pay more attention to the weather forcast. As I sit here with my laptop, remedy looking out the window, case it has started again. I took this picture, looking out of my kitchen window. I love old glass jars. I love the look of it and the feel of the old glass. The three jars on the left, are old jelly jars. The glass is beautifully etched and slightly frosted, and they have tin lids. I don’t know how old they are, but they are beautiful to me. I purchased them from an older Amish woman, who told me they belonged to her grandmother.


Whenever I buy clothes and they have an extra button, I put them in jars. The small one on the right has some bubbles in it, the lid says, Schlorers Delicatesson Company. The large one is an old mustard jar. Maybe you think I’m crazy, but I just like them.
Happy day

    Hi Carole-Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am a newbe at blogging so it is wonderful to hear someone say they like it. I have been following blogs for a few months and thought I would try. I to love primitives. I hope to someday sell on my site. Your glass collection is great. My hubby was working in Pgh one summer and they came across a glass dump while taking down an old building. What a surprise. He hand dug them up and brought them home. I since have loved old jars and bottles too. Hope you stop by again.

    I love old glass jars too. My Dad was always going around digging for antique glass bottles, jars and insulators when I was little. He has quite a collection!

    What a good idea with the extra buttons that come with new clothes. I have them all over in different drawers. Can’t believe I didn’t think of that. After I am done writing here, off to the kitchen I will go in search of one of those old blue mason jars. Thanks for sharing!!!!!
