If you’re in a pickle, you need a pickle.
A whole jar of ’em, that is. OR a jar of jam. Or jelly. These are my go-to charms after I get done batting my eyelashes when fix-it people come over. No matter what is wrong, who you have to call, what they have to do–when they get done? Go get a jar of something.
It makes them not want to charge you so much! Seriously! I have this phenomenon under investigation and I’m making pie charts. Or pies. Whatever. If you have to call someone, just go get a jar of pickles. Or jam. Or jelly. Trust me.

I’ve been on hiatus from BBB giveaways lately due to The Great Upheaval, otherwise known as moving. I’m BACK! Having been away from my regular BBBs, I’m going to play catchup on a few and do extras. I’ve got three BBBs up for grabs today!
It’s a Ball Blue Book Project day! Today’s Ball Blue Book is sponsored by:
Alton Wright in honor of his mother and grandmother, the canning queens–visit Alton at Life at Shadow Woods
Vanessa Zumwalt in honor of Evelyn Lamont and Evelyn Lot
