If you missed last week’s party, be sure to take a look, because the theme was Ladders, and there were some really creative was to use them.

Some of you linked up your favorite ladder projects as well.  Here are a few I loved.

Laurel @ Chipping with Charm hung a ladder over her bed to make a canopy!

  1. Thank you so much for the feature and book shout out too!!! So super sweet of you!!!

    🙂 Linda

  2. Lots of great ideas here, Angie…I’m inspired by the lighting ideas especially!

  3. This series is a great idea, Angie, and very well done!

  4. Your comment about our grandparents and great grandparents being surprised and amused by our re-purposing of utilitarian items reminds me how amused my Nuni was when I told her that I had hung her laundry scrubbing board in my laundry room. She had broken ice to haul water using a yoke and bucket to begin her chore of washing clothes, so when she got an automatic washing machine, she treated it as though it was a magical, precious machine.She lovingly covered it with a blanket so that there was never a chip or scratch on it, ever. I also have her metal slop bucket, that I use for storage and decoration, and that really gave her a chuckle. We forget how lucky we are to not have to work so hard. I just adore your blog, we are junking kin.

  5. Sue’s comment reminded me of my grandmother. My father bought her a brand new washing machine and dryer because she was still using one of those old ringer washers and he thought he was doing such a wonderful thing to make her life easier. After a while, we went to visit to find that she had been using them to store things in and was still using the old ringer washer to wash clothes. Some habits just die hard. 🙂 I have to say, my favourite use for canning jars are to put lights in them…I’m a sucker for lights, especially at night and your comment about the lights in the jars looking like fireflies really hit home with me. When I was a kid, our neighbourhood had a designated “Firefly Night” where we all went out with big jars to catch as many fireflies as we could. Perhaps that’s why I love the lights in the old canning jars so much? There is something magical about them! Oh, and love that ladder canopy, too! 🙂

  6. Great topic and round-up of mason jars.

  7. J’aime ces réalisations !…Ici, en France, ces bocaux sont introuvables…

  8. Angie,

    Thanks a bunch for sharing my guide on the age of canning jars! All of these make me want to dig out my vast supply of mason jars and whip up something new! This is a wonderful weekly feature!
