My favorites are the old blue ones - Mason and Ball jars - but I have a few clear, newer ones as well. And, after A and I stopped canning our own preserves, we decided to use all the little jelly jars as drinking glasses. My father-in-law always makes fun of them, but I love them. They're durable and inexpensive and casual, and they fit in well with our style.
We definitely have a canning jar theme going on in our house.
This one is filled with sand and shells from our beach excursions
(The little jar holds my sea glass collection)
This one houses a small portion of R's extensive rock collection
I keep this one on the mantel where I can easily drop in stray rocks that R leaves everywhere
This one is in the kitchen window, holding more beach shells and stones and sea glass
(The rectangular vase holds magnetic letters and numbers that R no longer uses - I love how colorful they are)
So, when the Nester listed these Mason jar soap dispensers by Midwest Finds as one of her favorite summer Etsy finds, I had to have one!
Here's my new soap dispenser for the bathroom sink:
I'm in love.
As soon as they're back in stock, I'll have to get another one for my dishwashing soap!
