About two months ago, Berkeley got its very own 99 Cents Store. On opening day, curiosity got the better of us and we strolled through the aisles (did you know that they often carry Earthbound Farm Organic produce?).
The only thing we saw that inspired any excitement, were these green Ball Mason Jars with super-sealing lids. We bought one of these in a thrift store years ago, and had been looking for a few more ever since.
Now we have three more and they're just sitting on top of the refrigerator. We're trying to come up with an interesting way to use them. Mason jars like these are obviously great for storing dry bulk food items like lentils, rice, or pasta. However, we bought these because we think they're beautiful. So we want them on display. Using them as a vase seems obvious, but we're hoping to get a bit more creative.
What would you use these for in your home?
