Whenever I see my blue Mason jars I think of…
sparkling blue waters of the Big Lake, summertime,
and sea glass from the Mediterranean*.

Decorating Mason jars can be one of the easiest ways
to add a bit of summer to a corner that needs brightening, or even the table.


Decorating Mason Jars :: AnExtraordinaryDay.net


Recently I created an extraordinary tablescape with my vintage Mason jars and book pages.   That got me thinking that most of you didn’t see this post of decorating Mason jars with burlap that I wrote late last summer.  If you’re looking for a splash of coastal color in your decor, you’ll enjoy a few of these ideas.  Be sure to check it out and get started decorating Mason jars for summer.

If you aren’t blessed with a stash of vintage jars, click over to my Amazon link and pick up these super cute Ball “Vintage” Pint Jars.  And yes, I will receive a tiny commission on anything your order through that link, thank you very much! [wink]

Decorating Mason jars for summer.  What could be more simple yet extraordinary?!


*One summer a few years ago, I spent a month doing an archaeological dig on the Mediterranean Sea.  Let’s call it a trip of a lifetime.
