Well it's been awhile since I joined in the fun so........... today's the day.
I love my blue canning jars.
I have several and I keep them on a shelf in my kitchen. I enjoy the old tin lids with the porcelain on the inside from the older canning methods. The older jars have wire harnesses that keep a glass lid in place. I have one that has a home repair job (a make-do job) with a thin piece of wire substituted for the normal one. It makes me smile to look at it and know someone fixed it themselves and didn't spend any money to do it.
I also use my canning jars. These ones have cinnamon sticks and sunflower seeds in them. I do have one in my cupboard with baking soda in it as well.
I took one of the tin lids and popped out the porcelain lid....poked a hole in the lid....inserted a soap pump and........made my own vintage soap dispenser. 50 cents for the jar $1.00 for 3 pumps and a tin lid 5 cents. I bought a bag of them at the thrift Store for $2.00. So instead of Gooseberry's it's Rhonda's. I did notice (while I was wiping it off to take a picture) that the soap that has collected on the inside rim if the lid in eating through the tin lid. Weird huh!!!!!!!! I'll just have to make sure I have a store of lids.
I prefer the blue jars but heavens knows I have enough clear jars too. I love to use them both in my kitchen for various tasks. They just look and feel so homey,
Enjoy your day. Be sure and check out The Colorado Lady for more links to more Vintage Thingy Thurs participants.
