  7. Liesl - This is an Atlas brand antique canning jar. A tiny little half pint jar that was too cute to pass up in the antique store.

  9. I collect old jars. My best find ever was an old 50's brown glass beer bottle on the bottom of the lake when it was so low it exposed parts of the lake that had never seen sun.

  16. Hi there! Love the jar photo.. did you see our old jar on my blog with the raspberry jam that my husband made? Have you seen the tiny little Ball jars that are salt and pepper shakers? I have 2 sets, one is so old it has the old galvanized lids.. one set is newer. And recently I found a DARLING Ball Jar that is about 3 1/2 inches tall that has a slit in the lid.. it's a Piggy Bank!! I'll photograph them and put them on my blog soo so you can see them. Love old jars!!
