Tattler

by Sharon

Worried about losing your tattler canning jar lids that you give away on home preserved gifts?

Have I got a solution for you!

I was thinking about this problem the other day. What can I do about giving my home made jams or pickles away as gifts when they have my tattlers on them?

If the gift recipient is a canner.... I'd just consider the lids part of the gift. They can try them out for themselves!

However..... most people I give these gifts to have absolutely no use for the lids. They don't do any canning themselves. I'm afraid they would just toss the lid! Eeeek. It would break my heart to throw away a perfectly good tattler!

I figured I could add a pretty gift tag asking for the lid back. I wondered if it would be tacky.... then thought about the people I tend to give these to. I know them well enough to know they wouldn't mind at all.

THEN I had a brilliant idea. Talk to mom! She is a poet at heart and has always written poems for her children. I just put in a special order. Tattler lid return requests... in ditty form. And here is what she came up with. She is so cool!


Tattler lids, oh so fine
Don't forget that they are mine!



Tattler Lids can be Purchased here...


These lids you'll love they last forever.
Please send them back when thru
I'll really be grateful when I use them again
And always think of you.


My lids do travel, they're tattlers you know
but at times they never return.
So please send them back, when you are thru
thanks much, for your concern.


I bet I have some creative readers out there. So.... lets start a collection.

Leave a comment on this post with a little ditty. Just a few lines suitable for a gift card tag. Graciously ask for the return of tattler lids.

This must be an original, no copying please!
