An Ode to Tattlers

I wax poetic about my wished-for lids - and you can all blame dr momi!

I dream of Tattlers with their endless seal
I dream of them with every apple peel.
I long to end the flats I'm tossing
(and the money I am lossing)

So, Santa, hear my request
As a Good Girl, I am the best...
My Stocking (a large one) will be hung by the fire
Please fill it with Tattlers, the lids I desire.

(Blatant, but effective?  Time will tell...)


  1. LOL! May your Christmas wish come true! I received Tattler lids for Christmas last year...I love them. glad I could inspire the poetic in you :-)

  2. SFG - I have heard nothing but good things about them. Glad to have that reinforced!

    dr momi - If Santa doesn't hear me, I will have to gift myself! You are an inspiration!!!

  3. Never hurts to express your wishes! :o] (Dang, where was my head? I should have asked for some this year, too. I don't have any yet and that would have been a good choice for a present under the tree. Or in my stocking. Or, heck, right on the pantry shelf!)

  4. Mama Pea - Yes! The power of positive thought - imagine them on your pantry shelf, and voila! Well, anyway, a little positive thinking never hurt anyone, right?

  5. I must live under ah cabbage...I didn't know tattlers was some sortah canning lid. Ya well ;=/

  6. Hope the "ode" works for you. Sometimes we have to resort to begging, pleading, or just bad poetry! Merry Christmas! And good luck!

  7. I'm thinking that I may have to make the leap this summer to the Tattlers! I hope Santa puts some in your stocking :)

  8. Seems to me a neighbor or two of yours could be talked in to splitting a case or two if they don't materialize in your stocking.

  9. Dear Susan,

    These tattler things of which you dream
    is something I have never seen!

    A google search showed me their use
    and I'm afraid your request I must refuse.

    These tattler lids I do not have
    here at the pole and in my bag.

    Because, "good girl", in the north you see
    we never can... we always freeze!

    Sorry, Love Santa


  10. I love your ode to the Tattlers AND Santa's (Spiderjohn) reply!! LOL!!

  11. Nancy - Yes, the best invention since the cordless driver/driller!

    Sue - And some of us are worse poets than others...

    Erin - I am thinking the same thing. I can a lot and it is such a waste to toss the flats. Although, truth be told, I use my old ones for other things when I can.

    Kayten - Hmmmm. I am a neighbor! That's a thought...

    Spiderjohn - Well, I hope Santa is NOT reading this! Wonderful poem - you are a natural talent.

    Candy - Riot!!!

  12. Tattlers have I? I do not,
    But I have SOMEthing you have sought...
    A wee felt doll will wend its way,
    but my address-list has gone astray!
    Please e-mail it to the place below,
    for a Pay-It-Forward Ho-ho-ho!
