Does THIS make me a "redneck woman"?


Nah!
(Tho if the truth be told, I probably AM one!)

So what if I drink my tea from a mason jar!
A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
And when I am working in the gardens, I don't want to have to go running in and out of the kitchen for a drink.
So I make me up a quart of instant decaffeinated tea, throw in some ice and a chunk of lemon, and out the door we go!

How do you like my Goodwill find?
The pot was $1.00, and the rosemary was one sprig for $1.39.
$1.39 x 3.
Three TINY sprigs.
Why, I'd need all three sprigs for a pan of rosemary roasted potatoes!

Geez....I'm gonna need a whole lot more rosemary, aren't I?
Pin It!

The mason jar makes you "FarmGirlCyn" :)

I have mugs with broken off handles that are still my favorites :)

About Rosemary, wow... most herbs, are sooo expensive! I wanted to buy some too... but went home with just the fragrance on my hands~it was so nice though ...
The rosemary is calling me to come back. so I'm going with my $7.99 for a 4" pot.
Have a great evening ~Maria

Ummm...if that makes you a redneck than I'm in BIG trouble! I love mason jars they are stronger than regular glasses and to make matters worse I reuse the glass milk bottles for water when I'm outside! So don't feel bad :)

I love your goodwill find! I am planning on planting a bunch of rosemary next year because I just read that they will help deter deer. we'll see... lol.

Now, you've got me craving iced tea. See ya!

Girl, I'm with ya on all but the "instant"...sorry but it must be brewed. BUT...I love the mason jars and we have the mason jar glasses and use them for everything...they don't tip over, they're nice and heavy and don't crack easily in the dishpan, and they don't have weird crevices to try to keep clean! LOVE THEM and hey, if it works, why change it! AND...I LOVE your little blue pot. I'm goin' to a few garage sales in the mornin'...can't wait, maybe I'll find me a blue pot! *Ü*
XOXO

I use canning jars for EVERYTHING--even canning! :)
The big 2 qt jars are great for brewing a whole batch of sun tea. I love that they sell one-piece plastic screw on lids for canning jars now. Not crazy about plastic, but they make using the jars for storage and drinking a lot easier.

Mmm...that tea looks mighty yummy! And I love it in a mason jar =) Yeah, "fresh" herbs are so very costly, I really need to start growing my own!

Tea in a mason jar isn't redneck, it's farm girl chic :). Anybody can drink from a regular glass!

bettyl said...

Definitely my kind of woman! I've been known to do that!

There used to be a restaurant chain in the Southern US called "Po folks" who had mismatched cutlery and served drinks in mason jars!

Drinking out of mason jars is completely normal. But maybe we're both rednecks? Love rosemary because, it smells so good and really pretty.

Stephanie said...

Love drinking out of jars! They make the best glasses!

Don't worry your Rosemary should grow into nice little bushes, but it is a slow grower!

Laurie and Chris said...

Nope! I wouldn't call you a redneck!

Texas Ghostrider said...

I have several rosemary plants I love their smell....

Faith said...

I've wondered the same thing. LOL

But honestly, when you are outside working away from the house and it's hot and a long walk, AND there are bugs just wanting to climb in and swim all day long, a mason jar with a lid makes a lot of sense.
