Blue Heritage Collection jars by Ball GIVEAWAY


Last week I wrote about the new blue Heritage collection jars from Ball brand canning products.  After I published the post, a representative from Ball contacted me and asked if I'd like to give a case of these jars to one of my readers.



Would I ever!  I knew y'all would love a chance to win a case of these jars.

These new blue jars are a little different color from the vintage jars, but they're just beautiful.  The Ball Canning Company, manufacturers of the "Perfect Mason" jars for decades, used vintage jars as the inspiration for this lovely new product.  Vintage jars are becoming hard to find, but now anyone can have these vintage-inspired jars in perfect condition!

Here's how one of the new jars compares to a vintage jar:



I'm really enjoying using these jars as casual vases for my cut flowers.



See how pretty the clear blue glass is?


You can check out Ball Canning on Pinterest for lots of great ideas using these gorgeous Heritage Collection jars.

And thanks to Ball Canning, one of you can now win a case of six jars for yourself!


To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post telling me how you'd like to use the jars.  That's all there is to it!  If you'd like an extra chance to win, like Imparting Grace on Facebook, then come back here and leave a second comment to let me know about it.  The giveaway will end at 9:00 A.M. Eastern on Monday, July 1.  I'll use a random number generator to pick a winner, and the Ball Company will send a case of jars directly to the winner!

 **Disclosure:  Ball Canning Products provided me with a case of these Heritage Collection jars for my own enjoyment as well as a case to give away.**

I have some of the vintage blue jars. I use them for canisters. I put beans, macaroni, etc in them. They look pretty in my cabinets especially when I open my cabinet doors when I have guests in my kitchen. I would love to have more because I don't have enough!

New Every Morning said...

We would use them as drinking glasses! I think they would be right at home here at the new farmhouse! They match my pantry door perfectly!

Krystle @ Color Transformed Family said...

I don't know if I could narrow down a use for them... vase, organizer, kitchen accent piece. It's so hard to decide how I would use them.

joanne said...

first of all I already like you on FB but wish there was a love button!

joanne said...

Ive slowly been adding some colour into my decor and I've chosen the beautiful blues that we are seeing now. I could really do so much with these..love the vase idea. Oh pick me please!!!

Valerie said...

Lovely, Richella. I have one blue vintage one left from my Grandmother. I use them to store liquids in and would probably do the same with new ones! I love Ball canning jars and I believe they are made here in Boulder. AT least they used to be. A guy at our church was head of that division several years ago. Love your lovely blog. :-)

Patty said...

Love these blue jars! Perfect for a handful of wild flowers!

kristinwithani said...

I have a set right now so it seems selfish to want another BUT I am using them like crazy. Right now there are two filled with fresh flowers and the others are drinking glasses around the house.

Because there are only 6 in a set, I'd love another to use for dry goods in my pantry. So pretty!

kristinwithani said...

And of course I follow you on Facebook. :-)

These would be great for a vintage touch anywhere----daisies in the kitchen, for a child's rock collection, with seashells in the middle of a modern room, with straws and silver wear on the screen porch for a meal---- love them!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Beautiful; I love the blue, Richella! They look so good with hydrangeas, too. I'd actually love to make some homemade iced tea and use these to drink it out of.

Paula@SweetPea said...

I would use them for flowers and possibly for canning tomatoes. Wouldn't home grown tomatoes look great in these jars?

I would use these jars for really fabulous pantry storage.

jenjen said...

I would use these jars for fun drinking glasses!

Patti @ Pandoras Box said...

I would use some of these jars for gifts, filling with packets of dried herbs and seasonings, flowers or homemade pickles - - with the ones I keep for me, I would fill with flowers, teabags and cotton balls :-)

Barbara said...

I know my plan isn't original but I would probably use half of the jars for flowers (my hydrangeas are blooming!!) and the other half for lanterns for hanging in the tree. But then again, I'm going to have a lot of tomatoes this summer so maybe I'd use them to can.....

Thanks for this opportunity, Richella!!

Darla P. said...

I'd use them for holding silverware when serving a crowd. They'd be gorgeous and fun on the serving table. Thanks for what you do!

These jars remind me of my best friend who passed away last summer. She had some of the old ones and used them for flowers and I would do the same and think of her!

I just love the vintage ones, but the new ones are gorgeous too! I would love to put flowers in them like you did and maybe turn one into a soap dispenser for my bathroom. It's the perfect blue for the room.

I have a very old blue jar (with glass lid & wire) my mother gave me years ago with the very last jar of chokecherry jelly she ever made, and I display it proudly on my piano. If I win, I will use the jars to make jelly for my siblings (and me!). Thanks for the opportunity!

I liked you on facebook!! Love your blog and facebook too!! Thanks, Linda

Ann said...

I am with most who have posted - it is hard to narrow down how I would use them. Vases - sure, canisters - yep! Maybe I would put one of the new solar light tops on one and see what happens. But they would be great with small American flags in them for the 4th of July.

His Doorkeeper said...

Since I collect blue and white china,etc. I would use these jars in many ways. I think sand in the bottom and a tea candle on top would make a cute outdoor centerpiece for the Fourth of July! Also drinking out of them with a cute red-stripe straw in them would be another Fourth of July idea.

His Doorkeeper said...

I "liked" you on FaceBook but I really liked you long ago!!! :)
Thanks for the chance at the cute jars Richella!

Hi Richella, That is neat that the company is giving you some to give away! I love these pretty jars...and after seeing your post, I went out and bought some for my daughter Lynnette who we were visiting this weekend. She LOVED receiving them. I want some now. They would be fun to use for a ton of things! I especially like the look of them with flowers in them as a casual vase...but I would also store things in them and display things in them too. Thanks for the heads up on these vintage jars! Love ya, Linda @ Truthful Tidbits

Who wouldn't love these jars!!! Do you think the vintage jars were at one time as bright as the current jars and have just "aged gracefully" and gotten lighter with time?

Lauren said...

I would use the jars to organize my new desk.

Kara said...

I love these blue jars!! We would use them for pretty much everything. I put cut flowers in them...I have mason jars in the bathroom for tooth brushes, cotton balls- I use them for holding loose tea, coffee, I even planted some bean seeds in one for the boys to see growing.

Heathahlee said...

Hello sweet girl! The first thing I thought of was using them as vases, but most likely they'd become drinking glasses at my house, as my hubs prefers mason jars over tea goblets. At least they'd be pretty! ;)

I would love to use them to fill with flowers and to give to friends or family to brighten their day. I will keep one for myself - blue is my favorite color - because when I would see my jar it would remind me of God's goodness to me and how much fun it was to bring some joy to someone else.

I've been trying to find a dozen of the old blue jars for my daughter's wedding coming up in Sept. She is having a burlap/vintage themed wedding. When I heard Ball was making repro's I was thrilled, as the old ones are very expensive (even at flea markets!)
