Strange Habits



Luke and my best friend Kate are just perplexed why I love drinking out of glass jars rather than a traditional glass. I always say with the glass jar and the straw make the water taste much better. They both think i'm a bit mad because of it! I spotted this wedding and thought, this event has the same passion of jars as a drinking glass as me, and, the styling is just so mighty pretty!

  1. If you were raised in Australia in the 1970's & 80's you would have grown up drinking from a vegemite glass which you reused after all the black spreadable stuff was cleaned out!! As someone who doesn't drink alcohol, at parties i like to drink mineral water from a stemmed glass, but i do love a solid double old fashioned tumbler at home. Not too far from a jar really, love Posie

  2. Drinking out of the jam jars is a very old American move to do. And, not usually filled with water, but rather some homemade Moonshine.

    Cheers!

    My sister drinks out of large mason jars, she says it makes her drink more, the larger the vessel. I love straws... it makes everything better!!

  14. Thank god I'm not the only one! I think a glass jar with a stripey straw does good things for your soul.

  21. What a great idea. Like Posie, I'm sure I drank out of an old vegemite jar back in the day. Haven't done so for a while but I think you may have just inspired me to give it a crack again. Gorgeous shots.

  27. I finally asked a friend where she got her cute glasses and she told me they were jam jars! I couldn't believe it. I loved them. I'm also a straw girl myself.

  28. Kellie, it is so good to be back here again today. Your site has changed as well! ;) I love your style and this idea of the glass jars. I have always liked them also but not sure why, though I cannot say that I drink from them. I do like the big rootbeer mugs and have a thing for uniquely styled goblets and fancy wine glasses. I am still rebuilding my collection but particularly one that comes to mind is a gold broken glass look on the bottom -it feels like Renaissance. Have a beautiful day! hugs, Jenn

  29. The first time I saw someone drinking from a jar was when I lived and worked in Paris. One of my co-workers , a Dutch guy, would do this frequently. At the time I thought it was strange but also very cool!

  31. Well, deary, that means that we'll be "mad" together! I save all my honey jars, wash them out and use them for water classes too!
