Country in the City – Mason Jars

Sep 25, 2013 by

I think it’s so neat to see traditionally country items going mainstream or making their way into the city.

There are many items that just scream ‘country’ to me.  One is definitely the Mason Jar. It signifies so much– growing, harvesting, canning, all done at home. It’s so fun to see country things going mainstream!

My first non jelly encounter was when I went to Idaho to meet my father in law a decade ago. He has a collection of mason jar cups. I thought were just so fun!  I even drink wine out of them!

They are getting really popular for weddings too!  A friend of mine used black lace and candles for her old Hollywood themed wedding.
