I  should be the National Spokeswoman for BALL JARS!!!  It's true... I have such a big crush on them!

It all started when I was a small girl and my Nani would pull a new jar of delicious jam from the cellar pantry and spread it's sweet fruity goodness on my toast! Ball jars hold some very dear memories for me!!!

This year I'm teaming up with Ball Jar Home Canning projects to celebrate the third...

NATIONAL CAN-IT FORWARD DAY
