Apparently, this is the second color of a three color series they are going to do - last year being the blue re-do's that were only available in pint jars.
This time, they made both pint and quart, and I just now noticed the boxes carry the Made in the USA label, so that's always nice.
I got my hopes up dreaming next years color would be pink. That would be sorta the holy trinity of vintage colors right there, but my husband burst my bubble reminding me that it's more likely to be a yellow or amber jar, if they are indeed really modeling these after their original jars.
Way to go, hubs. Way to go bursting a girls dream like that.
Anyways, I like these just for the sheer fact that I really do think I'm going to try my hand at water bath canning this year. Today's new stuff may pale in comparision to my love of the vintage, but I'd never can with vintage jars, so I'm thankful to have something kinda cool of my own for my first year's canning attempts.
On the thrift front I've found nothing...nada...zilch. I've got a birthday coming up in May, so I'm trying to convince myself that all this nothing-to-buy is just saving up for my birthday trip.
Anyways, hope you are finding nifty treats and treasures!
