I am in love with old canning jar.
The kind that are blue and have character. With maybe some dings... an old lid and loads of personality! My family did not can anything. I'm not sure I even knew WHAT a canning jar was until I went to college. I am not sure what happened but I heard about canning and fell in love with the jars. I even bought "Balls Book of Canning" and dreamed of canning for years.
I collected the cars
Read about the process
and that was as far as it went. I'm not sure I really WANT to can things, but the romance is there. I think I'll always be in love with the thought of canning.
My canning jar was the inspiration for Block 2 of Red Apple Lane. Just think of having a garden of goodies and creating a sparkling array of jars for your panty. The panty you can cook from all winter long (that would be about NOW if you live the norhern Hemisphere!)
"Jellie and Jams All Winter Long"
Block 2 of "Red Apple Lane"
I was so excited to draw this block and fit my jars on the window ... adding a bowl of cheeries and peaches for jam. Don't you envision a cozy kitchen with a red polka dot curtain? I know I do!
