Well, I guess it wasn't such a challenge after all, as Karin knew exactly what it before hardly anyone had a chance to guess! (If you don't know what I'm talking about, quickly scroll down or click this post and guess what this vintage utensil is!)
Great job, Karin! It is a jar opener! The question I have for you (or anyone else with knowledge of these things), is how does it really work? When I tried it, it wouldn't stay tight enough around the lid to actually unscrew it. And it doesn't have any way to grip the lid, it just spins around. Would you put a towel or one of those rubber grippy things between the utensil and the jar? It doesn't seem like they would have been very popular if they didn't work. What am I missing here?
On an unrelated note... is anyone else having trouble leaving comments in Blogger? When I try to leave a comment on someone's blog and choose "Google Account", it makes me re-login, and then it still lists me as anonymous, and then when I click "send comment" it keeps making me re-login over and over. Just an endless circle and I can never actually get anywhere. SO ANNOYING! Anyway, this was happening to me a month or so ago, then it got fixed and now it's happening again. So that's why I haven't been able to comment on anyone's blogs. Sorry! And if you have any tips to make this stop, please do share!
Have a lovely evening, everyone! :)
