Been pickling again, rack is nearly full now!

And of course I cheated...

I took a lemon cane from Angie Scarr and pickled the lemons ( yellow colored scenic water),
and did the same with orange slices (right lower corner)..

Then I started cheating even worse :
I painted ( with glass paint) little jars and bottles which gave me honey and vinegar:

Then I painted the outside of jars with red glass paint, filled the jars with ordinary Scenic water, used some more canes and came up with strawberries in juice;
then did the same with big jars, painted them on the outside with olive-green translucent glasspaint and filled them with more Angie Scarr slice, being gherkins/pickles!

Unfortunately I made a mess of trying to cover the bottles with gingham, as I had planned. It simply would NOT happen, so I have given up .


  1. Maravilloso! Tienes de todo.

  3. Giggle -thank you!
    It is really cheating, though, honest....

  4. I wish my 1:1 larder was looking so good. Wonderful work, as usual!

  5. They look great, you did a wonderful job and now the pantry is well stocked. :)

  6. Love these ideas! Thank you for sharing!

  7. Elly thank you for sharing how you did this - great idea! I have never used scenic water, this might give me the courage to give it a try. Hugs, Sandie
