VTT - I LIKE JARS


I like jars. New ones, old ones, inbetween ones. Just something about the shape/style of them, I guess. Here are some oldies.




Don't forget to view all the thingies at Suzanne's!

Oh, I am right there with you! I love jars too!

And I know you won't believe this, but lately when I find the old coffee jars, I buy them...some of them I have paid more than I should have I am sure.

Nothing beats the look of vintage jars storing things like buttons, old lace, spools of thread....love it!!

Have a great week and by the way, my favorite is the one with the tulips and little animals! So cute!

You have a neat collection of jars. They have a way of catching your eye and not want to part with them. Sorry, I did not keep some of mine.

Hey Sue! WHat a collection of jars! I'll bet that you have even more than you showed huh? I love a container of almost any form. My current fave is a vintage metal screw top lid on what appears to be a pickle jar? It has a metal handle too. It's currently my change catch all.

Your green "candy" jar is one luscious piece of eye candy!

Thanks so much for always visiting me at my papercrafty blog. Your comments make my day!

These look like a good excuse to buy a lot of candy to fill them up.

I'm with you I am very drawn to all kinds of jars & the nice thing is we always need storage, right? Great collection.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Your jars are great! I have a hard time putting nicely shaped used jars in the recycling so I have a cupboard full (my excuse is that I will use them for jams & pickles in the summer)

What a lovely little collection. My favorite is the green depression glass with the lid. Reminds me of candy stores when I was little.

You have just given me the shove I've needed to clean out the "storage" room upstairs. I know there is a box in there with my old jars.

I love your green candy jar.

Wow! I love it! I might need a new obsession, hmmm.

Happy VTT!

I like jars too! They can hold so much - or so little - and they are still charming!

Donna said...

I love jars too and this is fun collection!

A great collection! Old glass is so pretty - has so much more character than today's plastic!!

I adore jars too! I have that one with the bunnies and tulips, but no lid. Hopefully one day I'll find one!

I like your green glass jar, I can
imagine them all filled with stuff
I collect or maybe some old fashioned
candy. Great jars!

mub said...

Oh gosh, I would LOVE to find a big jar like that green one to store my buttons in. What a fun collection =)

I'm not coveting, just intensely admiring. It's a very comforting feeling to have old jars filled with things. When the sunlight hits them, they are radiant!

Hi Love your blog I found you through Beach Vintage, I loved your comment about being the only family member who likes old cheap stuff. I admit I love old cheap stuff too, there is nothing like a good bargin. Your jars look fab!
