Ball Jars- 100 Year Anniversary Blue

If you haven't heard,
Ball has released a 100 year anniversary blue jar.
I bought a set of six for $12.99 at
 They are $13.99 on Amazon for the set of six.

They are sold out all over and limited edition. 
 Sellers are asking $15 for one jar on Ebay and Etsy!
I did order another set from Amazon last night, so they are still available there.

I can't wait to see what is next in the line of limited edition jars.
The blue is referred to as "period correct" and look light blue in the ads.
They aren't quite that color- but a richer blue with a touch of turquoise.

Old jar on the left, new jar on the right.


2013 marks the 100th anniversary of the first series of jars designed by Ball brothers, each jar intended to be better than the one before. 1913 saw the launch of the launch of the first true"Perfect Mason" jar. These limited edition jars are a celebration of the heritage featuring period-correct blue color and embossed logos on the front and back. These vintage-inspired jars maintain all of our modern standards for quality and reliability. Perfect for all of your home canning needs... or as a collectible item!

  10. I didn't realize they were doing that. What a pretty blue!

  11. I didn't know about this! I've always loved those blue jars :)

  12. I ordered mine last week and they have already arrived. Love them! Thanks for linking up to The Scoop!

  13. So how come they say period correct but the blue is different? I don't know much about jars.


  14. How pretty! I just read a tutorial on painting mason jars blue...this would be easier!! (I'm lazy!)

  15. I love the old ones- I didn't realize they were 100 years old!

  16. How interesting...I just love love love the color. When I had my kitchen light made, I went with the clear jars, but was so tempted by the old blue in many varied shades

  17. Thanks for the heads up T. I got mine today!! I found them at Wegmans for $9.99! My husband was like "ten bucks for jars?" I was all "You don't understand" and then I set him straight. There were only two sets left. Maybe I should go back for the second box. I love the color; I have so much turquoise in my kitchen, they're perfect and they look so nice with my Fiesta ware.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me your thoughts. I appreciate each and every one!
