New Ball Mason Jars in Blue

Have you discovered them yet?  Ball is celebrating their 100th anniversary with brand new blue Perfect Mason jars.  My first glimpse was in Target a few months ago.  I fell head over heels.  I resisted the urge of an impulse purchase but knew they had my name on them.

And then along came Richella.  Bless her sweet soul.  She posted about the beautiful new jars and the makers of the Ball Perfect Mason contacted her.  The sweet people in the Ball office allowed her to do a drawing/giveaway for a set of jars.

 I didn't win just any ole set.  I won the 64th of the first 100 produced!  It even came with a certificate of authenticity.

Richella had asked her readers how they would use the jars if they won and I replied:
They would be perfect drinking glasses for our new house on the farm.

Yes, they are.  Perfect. In. Every. Way.

Low and behold, the next week, I received a second set of jars from the wonderful people at Ball.  I nearly fell over.  We now have enough jars to serve guests and allow them to truly experience farm life!  

I love the details.  The 100 year anniversary date and precise measuring lines carved into the glass are truly... well, perfect!

 Next time you stop by the farm, I'll serve some tea or lemonade in a gorgeous glass.

 Thank you Richella and Ball for the amazing giveaway.  We are having a ball enjoying them!

what a great win! I picked up a set for our house a few months ago and we have been using them as drinking glasses ever since.

After Richella's post, I had to go get some for my daughter who loves that color! They are pretty!

So glad you won her drawing...and then also glad that they sent you another set! How fun! They look so pretty on your table!

Oh, Gretchen! Your photographs do the jars justice as none others I've ever seen! I'm so glad you won that giveaway. It was incredibly generous of them, wasn't it? It was a privilege for me to be a conduit for giving away those jars. I am so glad it was YOUR comment number that came up in that random drawing--you're the perfect winner for this particular giveaway!

(By the way, how cool that they sent you one of the first 100 sets and sent you a second set as well! When I contacted them and told them that you were the winner, I also told them that you'd recently built a farmhouse and that you'd be a wonderful recipient of their product. I don't know if my letter had anything to do with your prize, but I surely hope it did. Again, you're the perfect winner!)
