Happiness in a jar

(Excuse the weird lighting. I live in a cave.)

I've always been charmed by the simple functionality of Mason jars. In looking to upgrade my hodgepodge of had-'em-since-college plastic cups, I was inspired by this post and this one. I'm now the (very) proud owner of 12 beautiful, half-pint Mason jars. I christened one this morning with some cranberry-pomegranate green tea and, quite honestly, it made me smile.

I love smiling.

And I love my new upgrade.

  4. Sarah, thanks for the inspiration! It's surprising (and maybe a little ridiculous) how happy my new "glasses" make me :)

    Ashley and Elizabeth, it's part of the Fiesta collection. I absolutely love Fiesta and have started collecting it. Inexpensive, functional, and cute!
