~ Blue Mason Jar.... the utensil holder...

I love this vintage blue Mason jar. I have had it since I was a kid. It was a random thing I brought home from my grandmother's house. I have used it for all kinds of things over the years. It stayed on my dresser with cotton balls stored in it through out my childhood. Then it became utensil holder when I had my first home. 
I have seen a lot of cute crafty things done with these blue Mason jars.

The ones with the candles are my favorite ones... and there are all kinds of ways to use them with candles...
Then I have seen oodles of them turned into hand dispensers for soap...
Pinterest has a never ending library of idea's for these wonderful vintage mason jars... and it is where I boosted the 3 above images from!  

But my lovely blue girl.... lives on my kitchen counter... holding my pink spoons... yes I have more pink utensils! These are not that old. Well maybe a decade old.
I keep intending to buy a couple more of these blue Mason jars. Because I really did like using it for holding cotton balls...
The plastic knife on the end... is made by Maynard. It is my go to knife when icing a cake. It has a little give to it... and it makes it easier for me to do the corners of a cake with it. 
I use the pink spoons all the time. Along with the ladle. So they stay beside the stove in this wonderful blue jar. 

I also have other pictures of the pink Ekco utensils.... here.... 

Be sure to check out all the thrifty finds at....

I have a collection of vintage mason jars and I didn't know what to do with them. Your post has got me thinking! Your blue jar looks lovely with the pink utensils.

I like blue mason jars. I've only ever bought one mason jar. I don't know what to do with mine either. It's just been sitting there for display. I wanted to fill it with something, but got nothing to fill it with.
