Blue Ball Jars
Happy Anniversary Ball! I came across these limited edition blue pint jars by Ball and had to share them. Aren't they beautiful! To celebrate Ball's 100th anniversary, they are launching a series of limited edition canning jars. These are the first in the series. It is hard to believe that Ball has been providing preservers jars for 100 years. My first experience with canning was at my grandmother's. I don't remember her jars being this blue, I thought they were more of a bluish-green color. That was 45 years ago, many things have changed including my eyesight. I do remember her canner, it was black enamel. Oh how I wish my family had kept more of grandmother's things to pass on. They kept larger pieces of furniture, but not these type of items.
I don't think the price is too bad for a limited edition collection, $12.99 for 6 jars. I'm thinking about purchasing them for my scrapbook buttons, brads, glue sticks, scissors etc. What do you think about this Ball collection? Do you remember the blue jars from back in the day? Please share your memory.
