Vintage Blue Mason Jar Candles

I just finished making a batch of soy candles with my new Ball Vintage Blue Heritage Canning Jars.. They turned out so pretty!! I just added them to my Karens Kandles website for $15 each (plus shipping and handling).. I'll be adding them to my Etsy store, too... 
 These jars are just so pretty!! They're very similar to the original vintage blue jars...maybe just a little bluer, but very pretty. 
The back of them say:
100 years of American Heritage
Made in the U.S.A.

Ok...this is confusing to me... Why is there a 2 year spread there? lol.. I don't know the answer, but think these jars, which are a limited edition jar, will absolutely be a collectors jar in the future. 
I made a batch of Buttered Popcorn, Tahitian Vanilla and Honey Flower Soy Candles and boy do they smell good! Wish you could smell them.. 
The only problem is, the Buttered Popcorn Scent makes me really hungry. lol..

I think the really great thing about these candles is that once the candle has been used, you'll have a collectors jar to keep. 
Just wiggle the base of the candle wick loose and fill the far with hot soapy water. Soy cleans up great with hot water, unlike traditional wax that just makes a mess. You can even stick it in your dishwasher once all the soy is used.
They'll make a great addition to your vintage jar collection, or use them to store craft items like buttons, bobbins, bows, or so much more.. Or use them to store your qtips in the bathroom, cotton balls, even put powder in them...(drill holes in the caps for easy sprinkling..). Use them as a flower vase, make a hanging lamp out of them, a pencil jar, on and on.. I love the look of mason jar, but especially love these vintage blue ones!!
