Back in the spring I began keeping my eyes open for a trio of blue Ball Mason jars. I was enamored with them after researching ideas for two baby showers I was helping to host. I didn’t want to just buy the first ones I saw come through on ebay, I wanted to find them in person, organically you might say. I also saw tons of tutorials on making your own blue jars, but I’m not trying to save a lot of money on bulk decorating for a wedding or anything, I just wanted a set of three. And I wanted them to be authentic.
Just north of work, I have stumbled upon a wonderful antique market in an old house. It doesn’t look big from the outside, but once you step inside it is huge and filled with fun old treasures to pour over. This is where I found my blue Bell jars. It took two trips to find all three, but now they are sitting pretty on the bookcase in our dining room.
