Good morning everyone! I just wanted to make a quick post about the vintage labels I used in yesterdays post.
I got mine on Ebay. Just search sellers and put in blue*cupboard*primitives. She has alot of different ones. The one that Rondell and I both used was yankeelaneprimitives. Search them just like I typed them and they will come up easily. Rondell told us on one of her posts that yankee lane primitives also sells on Lemon Poppy Seeds.
Now, I have been getting questions about how to get the candles out of the jars I used in my bathroom. Okay I have heard that putting them in the freezer makes them pop out. I have not tried that. The candles I had were the large Keeper of The Light jars and this is what I did. I put hot water in the candle, as hot as it comes from the tap, and let them sit for about 30 minutes. Then when I went back to check, they are usually soft. Then I score them with a butter knife and they pop right out into pieces. I finish cleaning them up in the hot soapy dish water with my little scrubbie that I use on my dishes.
One thing though, when you are scoring the candle with the knife....DON'T HOLD THE CANDLE IN YOUR HAND!! That is what I did and the knife broke right through the glass and well, I think you can visualize the rest. Set it on a non-slip type of surface while you are scoring.
One more thing. I know that not all of you that read my blog are "prim"....I know shocking to you other gals, but alas, it is true there are other types of decorating styles out there! Anyway, the point being, I also did a search on Ebay using vintage labels and it also came up with retro styles and victorian or cottagey styles.
So, there you have it. I think I covered everything. Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my post yesterday, I really do appreciate them! I have noticed that there are some people I can't reply to your comments. If you have any question please leave your email when you have a question or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. No, I'm not 54 (yet) that is the addy they gave me..LOL!
Big Hugs! ~Beth~
