Mocha Chocolata, Ya Ya...

I only have two so far, but I adore these Keiller & Sons marmalade jars.
They're just the right size to hold crochet hooks (without the lid on), paint brushes, or pencils, and the graphics are so wonderful.Something about the smell of citrus - especially lemons and oranges - that makes me happy. They just smell like sunshine and summer to me.
The marmalade doesn't have a lot of "extra" ingredients. Just all the good stuff that people can actually pronounce.
Heck, even the lid has beautiful artwork on it. Can you see why I adore them? Does having only two of them constitute a collection, or do I need to own about ten more for that distinction? Tell me that I need more and I'll get right after it! What do you like to collect?

PS. In case you don't know, my title is part of the lyrics to a 1970's Patty LaBelle song called "Lady Marmalade". If you do know it, you'll be singing it all day now, won't you?

Gitcy Gitcy la la la whatever ARE the words? Great tune and I'll be glad to try to remember the words all day, thanks!!

More jars! They are great! I like to keep unusual jars too. Where are you lucky to find the marmalade?

Have a Gitcy Guma Day!!

Technically, you need three to be a collection, but why stop there! My son collects the antique Dundee jars. They are very charming,but none of his has lids. I feel cheated now that we've never gotten to try the contents! Have a nice day, soul sista! Twyla

Yes, my dear the number is three or more to be a true collection. So off to the store you go. I have never seen these and they are truly works of art. I would be saving and using these also. Thanks for the song of the day...Lady Marmalade...

Hey pretty lady,

Those are lovely, but then I'm prejudiced as I think everything from England is lovely.

Stop by my post on my summer giveaway for a chance to win.

Hugs,
Meri

Carol R said...

I think anything over three constitutes a collection so you are 2/3rds of the way there! Nice jars!

Sarah said...

Definitely more of these is better! Where are you fortunate enough to find these in the states? Orange Marmalade is a staple around here. ~ Sarah

Those jars are awesome, Donna! I love mason jars and other interesting glass vessels to hold all sorts of goodies. And now I will probably be singing Lady Marmalade in my head all night long! LOL
