But no Worries ..because you know we can't just stand having One Winner ..so Abbey and I have some more fabulous items for a total of  "4 Winners" ...
 
But first off I want to tell you a little about all these amazing Ball Goods we received in the mail ourselves ..
 
*******************


If you are a home Canner or want to Get started Home Canning .. these products are a great way to get that boost ...
 
 
 
Of course hands down .. these American Heritage Ball jars be they Pint or Quart Size are just charming in their stunning Vintage Green Glass ! And Perfect For Fall and Christmas.. ...Gotta  Love them ..! They are made beautifully and  are just Perfection rather you are a home canner, or you just want to use them to store dry goods , use them as vases or make your kitchen super cute !  Although I would love to say we are home canner's .. we are not .. Owning a full time business just doesn't leave the time for us to do canning at this time in our life .. But Abbey was a home canner when I was a little girl .. And has been a home cook all of her years thus far. So Canning has been part of our home at one time.
 
 
*****
 
 
The Ball 100 year Anniversary Blue Book Guide to Preserving .. is Chock full of great Recipes from your favorite spread or jam to pickled and brined foods or putting up your favorite fruits and more. It walks you through getting started with the canning process .. and provides some vintage illustrations as well as some fabulous picts of canned foods you want to pull out of the pages and eat  ! 
 
 
 
 
******
 
The Ball 5- Blade Herb Scissors .. are well made .. great comfortable grip handles along with stainless steel blades .. superb for cutting herbs ... so much better than trying to chop them with a dull knife like we unfortunately have had the pleasure of doing here at the farmhouse .. LOL ! Especially getting the cilantro ready for our Homemade Chicken Fajitas Marinade .these would have come in and will come in very handy in the future.  These even come  with a blade cover so it keeps them in good condition but hey lets face it the cover really saves the frustration of the blades entangling with other utensils that are stored in the same drawer .
 
 
 
 
 
 
*****
And we can't forget the Dry Herb Jars ... These hold 4 oz of yummy dry herbs ... fresh from your garden .... the bases are a nice thick heavy weight glass .. ( made well) ... and the lids are plastic with a pop/snap top that opens the center of the lid and reveals the shaker .. Nice open holes ..not to small and not to big just right .. (kind of like Goldilocks finding the right bed).. Perfect for shaking those dry herbs while cooking ...
 
 
 
 
*****
The Fresh Herb Keeper and the Frozen Herb Starters .. didn't make it to me yet .. so I can't tell you all a lot about them .. other than to say the quality of the items I have received thus far is awesome so going by that these other 2 items I'm sure they will be just as lovely.. I'll do an update as soon as they arrive. Just know that the other 2 items are also part of the Grand Prize...and they are not pictured.
 
********************
