The Jars are Ready!

with 1 Comment

Bring on the Jellies. Today I have been picking the last blackcurrants and they are boiling with a couple of apples as we speak (read about the jellies on ‘Roued is…’. But it is not jellies I want to talk about here. It’s jars!
It is such hard work cleaning jars. Often the sticky labels just don’t want to come off. So when it does you don’t want the lid to have an image of a herring on it. Therefore I decided to decorate the lids with some images and a bit of varnish.
