mason jar memories

 i have this mason jar, right on my bookcase, where i keep all the little things i have collected over the past couple of years.  i was looking at them the other night and they just made me so happy! so many moments and good times have been captured this way. all inside this little jar. i have a hard time throwing things away.  because i like to remember everything. 

{like when i was little... and every year when the summer was over and we were leaving our beach house, I'd make sure to go down to the beach and fill a bag of our sand.  and the time my sweet little innocent, mad at me,  sister decided to dump it out?  we had my uncle go riiiight  back to our beach and fill a new bag for me! poor guy}

like old Alabama baseball tickets, the #36 button my roommates & i wore for Austin, tickets to peter pan, world of coke, movies, festivals, hotel room keys, flight stubs, notes from mom and dad, sorority name tags & game day stickers, v-day dinner candles, etc. 

it all makes me smile
mason jar memories. i big time recommend!

first off, I'm currently obsessing over mason jars. love them!

and I keep everything like that too! Movie passes, tickets to games, a bunch of little knick knacky things....except I must be a bit of a hoarder cause all my stuff wouldn't fit in a mason jar! haha but I love that you do this too!!

i love the sentimental stuff and i love that you have it all! MEMORIES!!

I love mason jars as decorations, and I love that you use them to keep special mementos! Fab idea :)

I'm doing that as well! I have a different mason jar for each year (so that i can stuff things larger than a ticket stub in each). So far Im loving it and i cannot wait to look back in a few years to see all the small things that ive saved!

This is a really cute idea! I save everything (too much) and usually just end up storing it in a box but I love the mason jar idea. Thanks :)
