Canning jars. They are *so very* versatile!
One of my favorite parts of the Christmas season is all of the lights that come out to brighten our dark evenings. Here in Minnesota it gets dark eeeaaarrrly. Way too early. Or, maybe, perfectly early because it makes the sparkly lights that much easier to see!
Some day I'll share with you the joys that were canning this past fall, but for now, check out what you can do with the leftover jars:
1. Line up some of your favorite glass jars, varying sizes if you can.
2. Add in some "twinkle lights" (or Christmas lights, if you prefer, but calling them "twinkle" means they can stay up much, much longer).
3. Wait for, oh, 5 pm to roll around and plug them in...
4. Instant warmth!
Seriously. We had these on during Thanksgiving and everyone agreed they made the room feel cozier. I love plugging them in every night and basking in their glow...and if there's hot chocolate in my hand, all the better.
