My Old Ball Jar

People are using Mason jars for all kinds of crafts these days.
In years past, we had a huge garden, and I canned lots of vegetables.
I remember my Mom canning all during the summer months in our old farmhouse kitchen.
For many years she used a wood stove,until electricity came to our part of the mountains...and made life a bit easier.
This old jar was one of hers.
It is old..according to the signature.
 It was made between 1923 and 1933.
The glass is very thick and has a pinkish hue.
You can see"bubbles" in the glass.
I have a few old things from home that I will keep forever.
This old jar will stay with me.

This one came from the thrift store.
It is unusual, I just liked it.
I will use it for something.
Have a blessed day.
Love,
Shirley
