Even tho it was light weight/flexible metal, cutting off the long part was not easy. However, with a lot of persistence, and bending it back and forth "umpteen dozen +1" times with a pair of pliers - wa-la! It was a shiny chrome, so wrapped the part that would be seen on the outside of the door with black electrical tape.
Pretty - No!
Functional - Yes!
Linking up with "Share Your Cup Thursday"
In my rounds yesterday, stopped at the produce market to buy some in season veggies and fruit. When got home, put everything away - or so I thought. Fast forward - today needed to go to post office, and see if there were any empty boxes outside a liquor store (great for packing glass items that are being passed on to their new home). Got in the car to leave - Good grief! The smell of ripe cantaloupe closed up in a warm trunk for at least 24 hrs. is not very pleasant. Quick trip to post office, went to closest liq. store - no boxes. Decided I did not have to have them today and not worth driving around looking for boxes with a stinky cantaloupe in the car.
Looks like I will be spending some time outside the next few days - No heat wave this week.....
Oh - Where is the stinky cantaloupe now? In my kitchen smelling up the place.
Time to get off the computer, cut the cantaloupe up, put in container with a tight lid, in fridge, and take the stinky rinds to the garbage.
Just another Dab of This and That ramble.
Have a great week!
