A Long Time Ago Project

It's getting too hot to go out picture taking so thought I would show one of my projects from a long time ago. You can see the gold paint coming off the blue Miracle Whip lids. There are eighteen of them to fit on the shelves of my hutch. I put a different mushroom decal on each one. I still use them for rice, pasta, brown sugar, and such. I don't even know if they still make these decals that you dip in water and slide off onto your project. Didn't take too long to save this many Miracle Whip jars as my girls  liked tuna salad made with it or potato salad. I would cry if I ever broke one since they are an important part of my kitchen.

Cute, yes, think they still make decals. BUT, now it seems all the Miracle Whip lids are plastic. I do not like the plastic lids. I wonder if the sealing lids still fit on the jars ... I made some jars similar to those years ago, they were the best organizers, weren't they?

I like this. How sweet and conservative. Something I would not have thought about, but a great idea. Iffn I had thought of that before we started rolling we would have had some! LOL Amazing how well the decals have held up!

I have not seen those decals in years, but then I have not been looking for them. What a great way to use the jars.

Now-a-days the jars are lousy plastic, there'd be no replacing 'em Be careful not to break any.
