Ball Jar Lovely

I'm just so lucky that my mother AND father are hopeless hoarders...well my mom will admit it, but dad, well not so much. Either way, whenever I need something, between the two of them, they can usually produce. Like two Christmases ago, I decided to take an adventure in 'domestication,' as my grandmother put it, and made three different types of jam, jelly, and chutneys as gifts. Needless to say that I was in need of jars, Ball mason jars specifically. I followed Dad up to the storage area, otherwise known as the barn, and after a minute or two of digging, he pulled out a trunk, full of vintage mason jars. Ever since, I've been in love. I want a whole wall covered in them, full of odds and ends, trinkets and chachkas. So when I had been searching for a summertime drink dispenser and stumbled upon one of these, I knew it had to go on my list.
