 This year Ball  introduced a limited-edition, vintage-inspired jar, the Ball Heritage Collection Jar.

Glass Act Supply on ETSY

The jars are commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Ball brothers’ Perfect Mason Jar, a first-of-its-kind blending of jars, lids and bands.

The Ball Heritage Collection Pint Jars feature a pretty blue tint and embossed logos on the front and back. They are sold just about everywhere, and come individually or in packs of 6 for about $10.

There are a number of ETSY shops that sell “accessories” for the jars..

I stumbled upon these adorable DAISY CUT LIDS HERE AND this site carries a whole slew of party supplies like these ADORABLE STRAWS!!! Which by the way….are also EVERYWHERE!!!!

The Vintage Blue Mason jars will be available through 2013, and then…sadly they will be discontinued…
….but don’t cry just yet,
…….because over the NEXT two years they are bringing back the GREEN and the PURPLE to
commemorate the 100th anniversaries of those colors!!!!!
***********************************************
I am pretty sure I have barely scratched the surface on the many uses for these Wonderfully classic jars…there
are the obvious FOOD related uses, but what other uses have you seen or done???
Share them with me!!!!.

  1. Hi Lesli,
    I recently helped my youngest daughter move and while prepping for the move she discovered some old canning jars so when she offered them to me, I carried them home, not sure what I would be doing with them but brought back good memories of canning with my mom. Great turnaround of events, she will be getting married in October so we decided to use large mason jars for flowers on each table and a pint jar on each side for candles. We glued lace on outside of each pint jar and the candlelight makes lovely shadows on the table. Fun, inexpensive & lovely centerpieces.
