I have, for a long time, loved mason jars - especially the blue ones. They have been something of a trend in recent years in weddings and decor, most popularly used as vases and lighting fixtures.
When we visited the in-laws this summer, my love of blue mason jars came up and I was promptly lavished with an assortment of sizes and brands that made this girls' heart go pitter-pat.

Mine right now sit prettily in a location where they are visible through most of our living space. They gently emphasize a vintage blue colour that is a running theme throughout, and until I find a use for them that inspires, I'm content to have them rest as a generous gift that brings me endless amounts of visual pleasure.
