Thrifty Tuesday ~hooch jar

Linda at Costal Charm has a Nifty Thrify party. I'd better catch her now, since Bill says thrifty is not my thing.
I was lucky on my trip to the Thrift Store last week. I went in hopes of finding a jar for my 'hoochin'... and found just the right one. The perfect gallon jar for making limoncello, with a little flair. I covered the top with some chalk paint, so I can keep track of the 'process'.
I also made a trip to 'Whole Funds' ( known as Whole Foods) to pick up some organic pestacide lemons. I found what I was looking for... I always do. That isn't exactly thrifty shopping, but life is all about appreciating the contradictions.

I am on day 8 and counting.
Y'all enjoy~

Love the idea of using chalk paint to great a reusable label lid! Very cool.
