We got our M&D order from Bloomingdales, but we got the big work bench and not the smaller boxed sets.

My kid's Godparents are frothing at the mouth for the fig preserves I made...just like my grandmother made(May she RIP). It is such a hit! I also say they must return the jar if the expect a refill of something next year. :)

Getting the jars back is the hardest part... most people don't know about canning etiquette anymore. :-) But getting more of your preserves should be sufficient motivation! Care to share the recipe?

the best is when they tell you they "recycled" the jar and hand you back the lid (with NO ring!! - because the also recycled that!!)

 

I have removed these people from my list-they don't get it and they DO NOT get the TIME I put into it!

That is so frustrating! I give people one shot - I'll ask for the jars back twice, educating them on return policy after the first time. If the jars don't return after that, they're out of the loop!

That is so frustrating! I always ask for the jar and ring back, but most people don't bother. Now if they give it back with their homemade preserves in it, I'm good with that. smile.gif

I got mine in a little under a week and DD will love it. smile.gif

Another deal for the gardeners - Peaceful Valley seed packets are only $0.99 - that's more than half off!
