If you’re anything like me, then you love a good project… and anything to do with organizing, especially in a visually appealing way that probably involves buying something. That is why I love these jars from Burgon and Ball, available in the U.S. here. For starters, they just look amazing. No more sticky labels with messy handwriting – just smooth glass and a fabulous font.
Not only do they look great, but the jar’s very nature begs for a project. As does the fact that we have now moved into the dwindling days of summer – okay I give in, the early days of fall. So it’s the perfect time to come up with things to do inside, that are warm, like canning. You may still have a lot of tomatoes left on the vine – make tomato jam. Or maybe you have, unlike me, already embraced fall and gone apple picking – make apple chutney. Cleaning up the garden? Homegrown herbs.
