BALL BRAND VINTAGE GREEN JAR GIVEAWAY

Yay, it's time for another giveaway!


I was recently contacted by Jarden Home Brands to host a giveaway of a new set of their Ball brand jars and in exchange for hosting it, we were given a set as well.  There certainly isn't much I can say about Ball brand jars that hasn't already been said (and always good!).  They have been made in the USA for over 100 years and the name is virtually synonymous with home canning.

Last year, they introduced something new to their ubiquitous line of canning jars and supplies.  A new limited edition heritage collection of jars in different colors.

For 2013, they were "Heritage Blue" Ball brand jars, as seen in the photo below.


They were only available for 2013.

For this year, 2014, they have introduced a new color, "Spring Green".


These will of course only be available this year.  They would be so great for canning and of course, as all Ball brand jars, for decorative or storage purposes.


Pickles would be so pretty... 
Drinks and even as a vase of flowers, beautiful...


Yellow peppers look nice behind the green glass...

We got our case of them and oh my gosh, they are SO pretty.  We can't wait to can something with them.  I think tomatoes would be gorgeous in this color glass.  They have such a vintage feel to them.  As much as I like the blue, I love these even more.  Another home run from Jarden Home Brands!  Hmm...it was blue last year, green this year, I wonder what next year's color will be?  Purple?  Amber?  Red?  I hope they keep coming with colors, they are certainly pretty.

So, all that being said, Jarden Home Brands has very generously agreed to give a set of these "Spring Green" vintage style Ball brand jars to one of our lucky readers.  See details below:

As always, and for those new to the blog, the rules are as follows:

You need to be a "friend of the farm" (a follower) and then leave a comment here on this thread letting us know that you want to be entered.

The contest will run for one week, until July 5th, next Saturday night, at midnight.  The following day, we'll randomly pick one winner and then they will need to email me their shipping address at that time.  I will relay the winner's information to Ball brand jars and they will ship your item directly to you.

Unfortunately, since this is being shipped by and from the manufacturer, entries have to be limited to the United States only.

One entry per person.

Thanks and good luck!

GIVEAWAY NOW ENDED, DRAWING AS SOON AS I GET IN TOUCH
WITH BALL BRAND JARS.

Please include me! I enjoy your blog very much, btw, and will admit to being a tad jealous of your farm.

i love these jars. i had no idea they released these in green! i need jars because i can things and give it away and no one returns the jars. if i win these, i am keeping them for myself!

Daphne Gould said...

I didn't like the blue color all that much as I thought it would look bad with food in it. But the green color is so pretty.

Peg said...

I'd love to have these jars. The only thing I ever can is apple butter. My mother-in-law gave me her recipe close to 40 years ago and I'll need to make some this fall; we're almost out of it. I found your blog recently and read the whole thing so I'd better understand what's happening. I'm loving it!

Peggi said...

Pretty jars. They would look nice on my table full of flowers.

Oh, I would love a set of these jars! Besides using jars for canning, I put soup in them in the winter time for giveaways to my family and friends, and I also use them as glasses. They would look gorgeous in my house! Thank you!

I'd love to win a case of Ball canning jars! I think the green ones will be more useful for canning than the blue, although the blue ones were pretty for other uses.

Quinn said...

Dani. I will be lying awake tonight trying to figure out the name of your pepper seeds!

I don't have to click "follow" because I'm already there. All my green beans blew up and I figured out it was the cheap jars I used. (At least I didn't kill anyone in case it was my beans.) Please enter me, and thank you.

Please enter my name. In Walmart in my town, there are blue ones this year plus the green ones. Last year and this year, there are only blue pints. But, the green comes in pints and quarts. So, look for the blue pints this year at WM, at least. I hope next year is lavender instead of amber...bleh.

I am thinking hard.
