Goodness, Gracious!

Between sales reps, I was flipping through some of our books that we received in June. Soon, I picked up Southern Lady Gracious Spaces. This one is one of my favorites - lots of recipes and pretty interiors are abundant!

I came across this great idea for the pantry ~ mason jars!

I love that you can view the content to see what it is that you want. You could even write on the lid's top to tell you whether it's baking powder or baking soda!
Clever - guess I never thought of pantry items - screws, nails, nuts & bolts....buttons, snaps, pins & notions, but I never thought of using canning jars for rice, spices, pasta & marshmallows (duh!)
Makes me want to delve into a midnight pantry cleaning spree...how about you?

Hi Girls!

I love the idea of mason jars to store in! Keeps everything looking so tidy and neat looking. AND old fashioned in a new way!

Love the post on the headboards. Very creative and unique!!

Big hugs, sherry

Hi girls,
I really like the mason jar idea. I have so many different containers it looks like a jungle in my pantry.
