Vintage, Upcycled Chalkboard Jars

The canning jar has special memories for me.
My Grandma was famous for her canned dill pickles,
and my mom's main seller when she was a vendor/crafter in the 90's
incorporated canning jars of different kinds...

Some of my most favorite memories are sitting around my grandma's kitchen table eating pickles,
and venturing off to different craft shows my parents were at.
I remember strolling my first born and new baby girl around while
my mom sometimes left the selling to my dad so we could look around
at all the fun stuff.

So I guess it's no surprise when my dad dusted off a few boxes of these vintage canning jars for me a few weeks ago, I knew something special could come of them.

There are more of these in some Autumn styles at my Etsy Store. You can find the link to them at the bottom of this page.
