Mason Jar Memories

Capturing memories in mason jars... how fun is this? Thinking my idea for photos in mason jars was just genius, I decided to Google to see if this genius idea was already thought up by someone else. It was! Okay so I may not be as original as I thought! Too funny! But as my sweet husband told me, "it was still your idea... until you found out it was someone elses." Thanks for not re-bursting my bubble honey!
I found these turquoise mason jars at an antique store and I just fell in love! I have been wanting to redo my downstairs bathroom with a mason jar theme for quite awhile now. Though the bathroom is not yet started my inspiration has my imagination soaring. I decided to go with a beachy theme to my photos, being that I am a California girl living in the mountains. Needless to say... missing the ocean. So with out much further ado enjoy!
 All prints are 4x6.
I just can't wait until I begin working on the bathroom!

I am linking up to these parties
and here

Pin It Now!


  1. Great pics! What a nice idea.

    I've never seen it before so to me you are the original:)


  2. Fabulous idea!! I just love it!! You have a beautiful family!

  3. That idea is awesome! I love the way you added a "pop" of color in the black and white photos in the jars. I saw your post over at V.I.P. party.

  4. This comment has been removed by the author.

  5. You are adding a whole new meaning to "saving time in a bottle".

  6. beautiful. I will definitely implement this idea in the future!

  7. I love this idea - and even if I saw it elsewhere, I still enjoyed looking at your photo jars! I also have some blue ball jars and put one photo in a clear larger jar - but I like the black and white in the blue jars! Thanks for sharing

  8. Thank you all! I just feel terrible... accidentally a post was removed. So sorry to it's author! It was an accident. :(

    xoxo, tracie

  36. Is there anything in the jar other than the picture and air? I have seen some people who fill the jar with vegetable or olive oil and then put the pic in, giving it a nice sepia look.

  37. No there is nothing extra added into the Mason jar.

  38. Love! Love! Love! I can't wait to try it!! :)

  39. These are SO lovely!! I'm including this in a Gimme Five for Friday roundup of beachy decor ideas. I adore these!

  40. I have made these with Baby-food jars, holding miniatures & lights. Have you ever tried cutting around the child's shape,then reinforcing it with poster board or a thin cardboard, for a 3-D effect? Then placing it inside. This would, also be cool with snow scenes, sledding, skating, etc. with snow in the jar.Great idea, Lovely job very creative.Makes a very memorable keepsake from a vacation!

    1. Thank you for all your great comments! I love the ideas! Love, love, love the snow scene idea! Thank you so much!

    I meаn "Mason Jar Memories" is а little νаnіlla.
    You might look at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create article headlines to grab people to click. You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab readers interested about everything'νе got
    to say. In my opіnіon, it could makе yοur pοѕts a little liνеlier.
