Here are the mason jars that I love to use for everything.  I really do use these for almost everything.  I store my spices and dry goods in them too for my pantry.  They keep everything fresh.  I even use them in the bathroom!  They're the perfect size for makeup brushes, cotton balls, cotton swabs, you name it!

And I just started using mason jars to serve drinks in!  They look really cute on a tray with a pitcher of iced tea when company comes!  

DIY Christmas Ornaments

Not a real Christmas Ornament, but I love this idea from Feathering My Nest.  I really think this would be a great DIY Christmas project for the kids to do.  Kids love snow globes.

And I am already planning on setting my table for Christmas!  I love this idea from Her Tool Belt.  What better way to use all the gorgeous mason jar projects this year than by showcasing them as your centerpiece for your Christmas table.  If you come to our house this year around Christmas, more than likely you'll see something very similar to this!
