The beautiful new GREEN Heritage canning jars and a GIVEAWAY!


You may remember that last year I was taken with the blue Ball Heritage Collection jars.

Well, this spring I was delighted to learn that Jarden Home Brands, makers of Ball brand home canning products, is introducing a new limited edition of Ball Heritage Collection jars in a new color--spring green!  Available in both regular-mouth pint size and wide-mouth quart size, these are "Perfection" jars,  celebrating the 100th anniversary of the the Ball brothers' "Perfect Mason" jar.


Aren't they gorgeous?  These jars pay tribute to the original jars created in 1914 in Muncie, Indiana.  Of course, these jars meet all modern standards for quality and reliability, and after 100 years they are still 100% made in America.

Here are a few ways I'll be using these lovelies in my home this spring.

Of course they make wonderful drinking glasses, and doesn't the green color look great on my front porch?



 For my next party, I think I'll use them to hold cutlery.



And as a simple flower vase, these can't be beat!


I'm in the process of making some changes to my kitchen, including painting my island--you guessed it!--green, so these green jars arrived just in time for me!



Best of all, these green jars look gorgeous mixed with last year's blue jars.  Just look:



Aren't they lovely sparkling in the sunlight?  So pretty that I just had to create a Waterlogue from the photo:


I know you're going to love these as much as I do, and I'm thrilled to be able to give away a case of these jars to one of you!

Here's what you can win:
