my love for mason jars


If you’ve been on Shutterbean before, you might notice that I like to drink out of mason jars.

My best friend got me hooked when I lived up in Oregon!! There’s just something about the weight & thickness of a jar that makes me like it. I also know that out of a room full of cups, I can easily spot mine. A few of my jars have the ounces labeled on the side! It’s pretty handy when I need to measure out a drink, or account for how many oz. of water I drank! A huge plus when I can put a lid on one and take it on the go!

I think its funny that people find it weird to drink out of jars.ย  I often get “you’re drinking out of a jar!”ย  As if I didn’t know….

This little delicate little jar/votive ceramic piece has found it’s home in our living room.

It’s a little birthday gift from a good friend. Isn’t it pretty? I can’t wait to see it lit up with a candle inside!

happy birthday to me!

She knows how much I love mason jars! I wish I could have a dozen of these!

You see what it’s sitting on? The first issue of 3191 quarterly.ย  It arrived two days ago!

I absolutely adore the work of Stephanie & Mav!

Happy Birthday to me!

    i share your love of mason jars.. my mom used to get them wet and fill them with a half an inch of water and put them in the freezer. making our juice or soda nice and cold in a frosty mug ๐Ÿ™‚ the ice would eventually float to the top. i LOVE that ceramic mason jar!

    I love, love, love mason jars too!

    And so does the Pioneer Woman – she was waxing poetic about them this week. Too lazy to find the post, but it’s a good one, you’d love it ๐Ÿ™‚

    p.s. is this peninsula weather hot enough for you???

    Happy belated birthday! I like your list and noticed you mentioned capers. This week I threw some in when I made turkey burgers. I liked it! ; )

    • Tracy

      Thank you! Ooh…that would probably be a really good match for me. Will make a mental note of that!

    I read your blog every day I love love love it
    This is the first time I have felt like I can’t actually just close it and carry on with my day
    as long as I can remember my parents have always had mason jars in the freezer (for a cold beer)
    and I too now drink EVERYTHING out of them!

    I make a smoothie or Iced coffee in the morning and off to work i head with my jar in tow lid sealed for non spillage!

    This post just MADE MY LIFE today


    • Tracy

  • Michelle

    I totally agree – I love drinking out of mason jars too. : ) Maybe we should form some sort of support group?

  • Christine

    Wow. I’m stopping by for the first time, and what I see, mason jars! I LOOOOOOVE to drink out of it, even if my boyfriend finds it a bit crazy. Happy to see I’m not alone! Beautiful and interesting blog, by the way.
