I heart New York Magazine, but I think they got it wrong on this one:
Trends We’re Tired Of
Mason Pickling Jars As Ornamentation
I know we’re all locavores now, but here’s the problem: Pickle jars are ugly.
Though I definitely LOL’d at this, I beg to differ! Do you think this is ugly?
I think small candles inside larger glass jars always looks stunning, and the flickering candles in low light create the kind of ambiance that keeps a home warm and inviting. Maybe that’s just me, but from the looks of it…others don’t think these jars are ugly.
The folks over at Design*Sponge took Mason jar home decor a step further and made this impressive fixture: Whitney’s Mason Jar Lights
Whitney reveals that she is also a Southern girl, so maybe it’s just a Southern thing for me to be drawn to Mason jars. My Mason jars came directly from my mother, who, every summer, cans her own veggies, makes delicious salsa and preserves pretty much anything else she’s growing in her garden. My jars used to have salsa and homemade pesto in them. Mmm.
The always-chic re-nest bloggers found another beautiful take on the pickling jar trend: lanterns! I imagine sitting outside at the picnic table, sipping lemonade and enjoying light citronella candles inside these porcelain jars.
I think the only ugly pickle jars are the ones that still have the labels on them. What do you think? Is New York Magazine right…is this trend over?
