DH has a collection of marbles a lot of them he played with as a kid. He was the school champ marble shooter!!!
We're not going to use the fireplace and I hated to see his marbles just stored in the garage so I thought put them in the old canning jars to display them!! Thanks for looking

Oh you silly! I put some in the bottom of my birdbaths in the summer! You can use them in a clear vase for a dry flower arrangement as a centerpiece for a dinner party too! Just a thought if DH shares them with you!

I love the old fashioned marbles. Got some when my dad passed. They are going for a lot of money these days--but not going to sell them. Lovely display of them so others can enjoy also. My grandkids like looking at mine.
