Jarred

By Carol Clark

During Thanksgiving I discovered I didn't have enough matching glasses for everyone at the table. Then I remembered seeing canning jars as drinking glasses in a magazine, so I tried it.

My unappreciative daughter visiting from Denver said,
"Grand Junction, where we drink out of canning jars and talk about how to kill chickens at Thanksgiving dinner."  The poor thing has been away at college too long.

But, I loved the glasses and they are now the only glass I drink out of. And what better way to use all those empty jars in the winter months.
Searching the internet I found many other fun uses for jars and thought I would share them with you.

How do you use your empty jars?

I use empty jars to gather dust bunnies in the garage! Actually, most of my jars are still full of canned food and are gradually becoming empty as I find yet another way to use green tomato chutney.

I use mine for flower vases all the time. I’m loving the lampshades idea, though. I have some very old jars that I fear will crack someday after their who-knows-how-many decades of use. This would be a great way to utilize them.
