I’ll be the first to admit that the mason jar trend is getting to be a bit played out. After all, Pinterest is filled with clever and adorable uses for these humble jars. But I had to share one of my favorite mason jar hacks, this simple idea from the Six in the Suburbs blog.

Mason Jar Cocktails

For my next summer soiree, I won’t be a a slave to the bar cart, mixing drinks for my guests all night. Nope, I’ll be making drinks ahead of time, sealing them in mason jars, and putting them on ice. Self serve never looked so good.

Here at HGTV, we spend a lot, I mean a lot, of time thinking, talking, and reading about design. Because of this, it takes something pretty special to capture our attention. So when I happened across the website for O’verlays and gasped at my desk, I knew I had stumbled upon something that I had to show you.

O'verlays

O’verlays are thin, lightweight pieces of fretwork that can be used to dress up plain Jane dressers, cabinets, even headboards. They are made to be painted and customized and come in a wide variety of patterns and sizes. The project gallery on the O’verlays website is chock full of ideas and inspiration and left me thinking of half a dozen different ways I could use this product in my own home. What do you think? Would you jazz up a piece of furniture with an O’verlay?

If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then  these brassy, gorgeous knobs from Nest Studio are your buffet’s BFF. All kidding aside, I love the facets and brushed exterior on these fancy drawer pulls. I’m picturing them as a modern update to a vintage bedside table.

I love to knit, but I’ve never gotten the hang of crocheting. So I’m extra impressed by this swoon-worthy pendant light hand-crocheted by Naomi Paul Textiles.

I can just picture how gorgeous it is when lit from within, and I love that it comes in a dozen color options. Would you hang a crocheted light, or do you prefer to keep knitted goods around your neck?

I have to warn you, this brilliant product is only a prototype, but I can’t help but admire the idea behind the Rambler Socket from Yanko Design.

As someone who is always hunting down an extension cord, the idea of having one built right into the wall is so intriguing. I would start by putting one in the corner where our Christmas tree goes up every year. Where would you install an outlet like this?

This unique set of spoons is a project from design student Niels Datema. They aren’t currently in production, but I think they are kind of amazing. Why? Because each spoon is the exact measurement for an ingredient to make a classic loaf of bread.

Fill the water spoon up to the top with water, the flour with flour, and so on…mix together and knead, and presto! Perfect bread dough.

Think of the possibilities! Cookie spoons, cake spoons, brownie spoons…my stomach is growling but my mind is inspired.
