Thank You to The Wall Street Journal

I'd like to thank the Wall Street Journal for featuring my soap dispenser picture in the Dec. 19th, 2012 edition.
The article entailed lots of fun and creative uses for Ball canning jars.


 When Barbara, the photo editor, emailed me I was so very flattered!
Even better...our small town sells the Wall Street Journal.
Whoo Hoo!

This is so cool! How exciting for you. I was pretty excited when my Christmas Advent book was mentioned in Deseret News out of Utah.

Julia,

Congratulations! You must be so proud that the Lord gave you such a creative idea :O) I have been desperately searching every antique store I can get into for an antique quart Atlas with a lid. When I finally get one, I'll be making your little lovely too. Have a blessed new year.

Julia,

Congratulations! You are so creative, and your canning jar idea and picture is just beautiful.

And I'm so glad I saw this post. When we moved into our new home, a lady gave me a beautiful soap dispenser for the kitchen sink. I dropped it while filling and accidentally broke it.:( I decided to make one from a canning jar like yours, but the hole in the lid isn't the right size for the pump I ordered (never thought of using one from a lotion bottle). Anyway, you've solved my problem because now I know that I can use glue instead of the plastic piece which screws to the pump from the underside. Thanks!

God bless you and yours,

Sherry
