The minute I saw the can with all that glorious rust, I knew just what to do.
So after shaking the dirt out of it
and taking a few photos,
I selected a spool of thread given to me by Joan earlier in the year
and wrapped until the whole spool had been used and only tiny sections of the can were still visible. Then I sprayed the thread with vinegar, put can et al in a bag and gave the vinegar time to work its magic.
Not too bad, huh? With that thread drying and snow falling, well...
I decided it was time to let Mother Nature have a bit of fun too.
