For the Love of Cottage Flowers in Mason Jars


I'm completely and totally in love with Cottage Flowers displayed in Mason Jars.  I know, I know...everyone else seems to be too.  I guess I've gotten sucked into the popularity of them and I just can't help it - feminine, charming, beautiful -- have I missed anything?

It's so easy to add instant beauty to any of your beach cottage rooms with a few flowers placed into a jar. A simple grocery store bouquet or some snips off your favorite flower or shrub can create a showpiece for everyday living.  

If these photos don't inspire you to dig out some old jars or look for them at yard sales this Spring, then I don't know what will.

Flowers and seashells and colored Mason jars....all of our favorite things!

  12. I think I've got the bug. They are gorgeous. Would you believe I was asking my fellow diners at lunch the other day, if I could take their little coke bottles after they had finished. Not mason jars I know, but in a similar vein. I have also just picked up a few little jars from my mum. I think you have inspired a future post for me with jars and flowers.

    Have a lovely weekend gals and thanks for your continuing visits to the Beach House. I really appreciate your support. Have a great weekend
    Best Carolyn

  16. Oh...how happy I am that invited me to visit your blog! I'll be your newest follower. ;-) I have really old clear jars with the glass tops....but a couple of months ago, an elderly friend gave me one of the aqua ones! I was so excited!

  24. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your photo is so beautiful. I agree! There is something that says it all, when pairing flowers in mason jars. I own several and use them to store buttons etc. I'll be stopping by again.

  25. I think why we all love these beautiful olde jars is because they have a simple elegance about them. I remember one of my grandmothers using one for flowers. It sat on her window sil....once I had a home, one of the first things I did was to find one for me, too!
    This is such a lovely post!
    HPS!

  35. Hi
    Visiting via Pink Saturday.
    I wonder if mason jars were only popular in America and possibly Canada as in Scotland they are not something I was brought up with. I've only got to know about them through America artwork/magazines, etc.
    They are the simplest of vases but possibly the most beautiful.
    Have a Happy Pink Saturday.
    Wishes

  47. I love mason jars - I currently have several blue ones that are empty, bet you can guess what I will be putting in them and if they are half as pretty as yours I will be happy - yours are amazing!!

  48. I just had to come back on here and tell you about my great find! I was at a yard sale this morning and found 6 blue jars for 50 cents each! At the next yard sale I found another one for a quarter! I was so taken by this post when I read it yesterday and was so wishing that I had some...and now I do!! Yay! :)

    Have a great night!
