Doesn’t it seem like home canning jars have been around to preserve things (anything!) since the beginning of time? Well they have really only been around since the mid 1800′s, but with every passing century we are still finding ways to reinvent the jar with new styles, forms and designs. Below are some really beautiful jars we found that should compliment any possible style of home decor!

So take a look at some sweet stylish ways people are packing jars in their kitchens…
this is an interesting design and goes with country rustic decor for sure!
A classic retro approach to jarring ingredients, and gray goes with anything!
Back to the old school with these beautifully scripted vintage style jars.
The original old fashioned glass jars with hinged lids and boldly contemporary labels.

These cool techie designs are modern alright, and so fun with their color coordinated lids.
