Beautiful blue jars

Since my computer was acting up I decided to use my Kindle.  I had to have a picture so I took it with my Kindle.  It's a bit difficult because you can't see what you are taking the picture of.  Doesn't everything look good in these blue jars.  This jar has a frog built in the top made by my friend Penny. 
 Did you know that ball jars have a limited edition of the blue jars for their 100th anniversary.  6 pint jars for $12.99 plus shipping.  The web site is Ball Fresh Preserving Store. After I took this picture and started to read blogs, The Country Chic Cottage blog came up.  The post was about teacher gifts using ball jars.  There was a link for the jars.  I had seen them before but they were sold out and it seemed they weren't going to be offering them again.  
So this is how post came together.  Well not that easy.  I had to switch back to the computer to add the words.  Geez, all kinds of problems today.

I am feeling better.  Still really low on energy.  I am going to go out and run a couple errands while the sun is shining and the temps are nice.  It's pretty bad that I have to push myself to leave the house.
We did have breakfast with my son and his girls on Saturday and then later went to Goose's soccer game.  It was freeing but we had a good time.  First graders are so funny.  She's pretty good I must add.  It was also her big sister Hope's birthday.  I will post pictures of the game and the birthday breakfast soon. 

OH, remember the pants hangers from my last post.  I was sure that my husband had some but he didn't. On our way to the game on Saturday we stopped at a garage sale.  We found 6 there for $.25 each.  The guy that owned them was in his 90's.  I was excited.

So before something else goes wrong.......I will publish this.  Happy Monday Friends.

Debby to make this clear the reason I paid 19.99 instead of 12.99 is the shipping makes them over 21. dollars on the Bell store website and at Amazon I get free shipping with my Prime.

Good Morning Debby, I am happy that you are feeling better. I love to watch the grandkids whether it is baseball or showing horses. I just enjoy it. I know what you mean about the enjoyment you get from seeing them play. I can remember seeing them run off the field because they needed to go to the bathroom. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Hugs and prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Everything looks better in a blue jar. That's a lot of messing around with your kindle to get a picture for your blog. That's some kind of blogging dedication (smile). I'm glad you are perking more. I'm sure your grandkids appreciated you being at the game.

I'm glad you're feeling better but sorry the computer is acting up. I will be at a total loss if that ever happens to me. The important thing is that you've been taking time to enjoy your wonderful family. That's what it's all about!

Your daffies look so pretty in the blue jar.

I am glad you are feeling better but sorry to hear about problems with your computer..seems like it is one thing or another. Thankfully your Kindle came to the rescue! xo

Your grandkids will remember that you went to watch them play and it will make great memories for them.

I didn't know about the blue Bell jars. I've never seen then before today.

I'm happy that you are feeling better. Maybe if the weather improves, you'll feel even better. Tke good care of yourself. There's only one of you for all those grandkids.

I am sorry you aren't feeling well. The cold weather doesn't help.

I know there are lots of pants hangers at my parents' old house in the garage. My sister is spending 2 weeks of every month working in London, but when I am retired and she is on a 2 week home, I am going for a visit and I am going in search of pants hangers, wooden shoe inserts and some old film reels. Who knows what else I might find.

Awesome pants hangers Debby! Of course those blue jars are beautiful and perfect for summer flowers to come. I am glad you are feeling better. My hubs got the respiratory thing really bad and is just now recovering. No fun. I am back to work after surgery and gearing up for 6 weeks of treatment and then hopefully home free. We need to do a lunch and junk meet up soon. Hugs, Pam

Amazing bargain on the hangers! I gotta get me some more. Maybe I'll get lucky at some ol' guy's yard sale soon! LOL
Saw your jars on Ace's site. $10.99 and no shipping when sent to your local store. Not bad! :-)
