In recent posts I told you that my van is out of commission. I rely on the kindness of others to take me out thrifting. This means I can not pick up any large items, even if free. Plus it means that I try to take up as little space in their vehicle with my “treasures” as I can, also to make it convenient to carry things into the house myself.
(When I have my own vehicle I can leave things in the van and move them about at my leisure.
Oh, the things we take for granted.)
Well, I think I packed things a touch too tightly.
When I “set” the globe on top of the vase I thought I was keeping it safe, without endangering my 75 cent purchase.
Now the dilemma. Should I have to break one to free the other, of course I want to save the vase. But I am thinking that if it fit in, it has to come back out.
Am I wrong?
My next thought is that I do not want to cut my hand and have an E.R. visit added to the cost of my treasures.
So – expand or contract.
Should I heat it up
or cool the glass?
Fortunately neither extreme was necessary.
He didn’t say exactly how he did it, but he used his “magic touch.”
I am linking up this post to Smiling Sally’s Blue Monday linky and Debbiedoos Yard Salen Party. I appreciate their hosting. Please go visit, after you leave a comment here, of course.
I am also late, but adding this to Frugal Friday over at The Shabby Nest.
