I told you. I love me some mason jars. Maybe it’s because my great-grandma had these all over her home at the farm as a way to can her green beans and vegetables from the garden. Or, as storage jars for cotton balls, pens, you name it. I remember being fascinated with these jars then. And, obviously, I still am.
