I have a long standing Jones for old apothecary jars and a new one for old maps. See how pretty they are together?
In March I found another jar. It was all grungy inside, so I filled it with my favorite grunge fighter (distilled vinegar) and set it to soak.
It was sitting sink side on St. Patrick’s Day. Of course our supper was corned beef and cabbage. You KNOW how that smells post meal, right? I’m not sure why, but after cleaning up after supper I set the lid on the jar ajar. In a few hours there was zero, zip, nada trace of funky smell in our kitchen. Could it have been my friend the vinegar? I’ve been experimenting and YES it was! Am I the only woman who did not know this wonderful destink trick?
Alas, my map / bottle / wooden lamp vignette will need to attract a different jar. This one is my new kitchen BFF. For real.
I'm a hunter and re-homer of treasures. I operate an very cute but not cutesy vintage shop in Echo, Oregon and love living with my husband on the dry and windy side of the state. My shop opens at 11 on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and some other days when I'm there. We are proud retailers of FUSION Mineral Paint, Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint, and Junk Gypsy Clay & Chalk Paint (Talk to me about workshops!)

I sure hope the link is clickable. I'm lots better at creating and gathering than I am at linking and clicking.
Come visit us on Main Street in Echo. (Sno Road Winery is right across the street.)When we're not open, I'll be hunting treasures. Contact me if you have requests.
