Mason Jar Creations to be Treasured Again
I create Original Designs using Mason Jars and recycled items. My Journey on Etsy started as a necessity, to sell some of the treasures I had salvaged over the years. It turned into something much more then I expected. I have always created and used salvaged pieces. My Etsy shop gives me a chance to combine both of them.
Upcycling/recycling has been a way of life for me, since my parents and grandparents taught me not to be wasteful. I learned from my sister to look at what others might think as “junk” as a treasure, and as a challenge to figure out another use for it. Years ago we helped an elderly neighbor and salvaged antique jars from his century old farm basement. Most jars still had food in that his mother had canned. It wasn’t a pleasant job cleaning out that old food and washing out the jars, but I couldn’t stand to see them get dumped. I stored the jars for years, but then decided I needed to find a way to use them, other then storing them. (We have done tons of canning of veggies from our organic garden, but we found we didn’t use the older blue jars as much since they didn’t always have as good of a seal anymore.) I loved the blue glass so wanted to find another way to use them. So, I created HANDMADE FLOWER FROG LIDS and used them for arranging flowers from my garden. I thought they were such a neat idea, that I decide to share them on Etsy. Others liked them also, and it started from there. The Original Handmade Mason Jar Flower Frog Lids are here: http://etsy.me/10diqL0
My idea for the Mason Jar Solar Lights started as a result of finding some spare solar light pieces after my nephew hit them while lawn mowing. I worked with the design for quite some time and created the first Twist-on-lid Mason Jar Solar Light design. This way the solar light lids can be easily moved from jar to jar, they are secure on the jars outside, and the repel water. It seems like a simple concept, yet one that I am proud of since it’s my design.

I started selling my jars with the solar light lids. Then customers wanted to know if they could purchase just the lids for jars that they already owned. Others wanted to use jars that were special to them also, such as jars from their grandmother, mom, etc…So, the term “Mason Jar Solar Light LIDS” was born. It has been a popular item. I smile when I think of others using their jars that previously were sitting on the shelf or in storage, and now enjoying them in their garden. The jars are pretty during the day and then so beautiful when they light up at night.
I’ve been known to haul many things home from dump sites also. My idea for my popular Mason Jar Party Lights/ string lights design came as a result of my digging up some clear jars from a dump. I left them sit outside in washtubs most of the summer, to let them get washed. When I finally hosed them down and gave them a good cleaning, I found most had etching or very wavy glass, partly as a result of being under ground and partly from being used for canning many years with well water. I found those marks even prettier when I put lights in them. So, I created an idea of Mason Jar Strand lights. I use my garden a lot for inspiration, & most photos are taken there:
I used a similar concept to create my Mason Jar Chandelier:
My main work areas are my basement & garden area. My favorite places to photograph are in my garden. I have seen many beautiful sunsets while photographing my items!
