I was gifted vintage blue canning jars with zinc lids. My elderly neighbor called the other morning wanting to know if I would like some canning jars. Her husband passed last year and she is no longer gardening or canning. She had an auction earlier in the year but this box had been missed, hiding in the corner of the basement. I told her I would love to have whatever canning jars she no longer needed. If you are a canner like me you can never have to many jars. She was eager to get rid of them and ran them right over to me. I thanked her for the box of canning jars and chatted a while. I had no idea until the next day what treasures were in that box. I was loading the dishwasher and thought I had better run the jars through a load before they get moved to the basement where all my canning supplies are stored. You can’t imagine how surprised and excited I was to find Blue Jars with Zinc Lids in the box. What an unexpected find. After the dishwasher did it’s thing I grabbed the blue jars and pondered over where to display them. I have several blue ones now and love to use them all around the house for decor. For now I have them on my mantel, but they will get moved around and used as flower vases from time to time. Don’t you just love it when an ordinary box of canning jars turns into a box of Vintage Blue Canning Jars?
