If These Walls Could Talk....

....maybe they would tell me how to get this Mason jar out of this hole!  We moved into our home 12 years ago.  My mom and I picked up three Mason jars to use in the new kitchen decor.  We were placing them in a little vignette on top of the cabinets, when one fell over into a weird triangular hole where the wall angles, leaving space at the back of the cabinets.  It did not break....and this dusty Mason jar has made its home here for all these years.  You can see some "fishing gear" down there on top of it where my silly girls cooked up a plan about 5 years ago to help me get the jar out.  It involved a pair of striped Halloween tights tied to a crab net....and yeah, it didn't work! LOL!

So here is how we use the remaining two Mason jars in the kitchen nowadays...
...and this little girl knows exactly where they are and exactly what they are for!  :o}

So, anyone have any ideas for how to get that Mason jar out of the hole???  Any and all ideas are welcome!

Sharing my dilemma with the fine folks who visit Funky Junk Donna's Saturday night special on Mason Jars  :o}

Oh no! Twelve years! How about chewing gum am and a fishing pole? Or your neighbors five year old? [just kidding about he five year old, don't call D.S.S. on me ;)]

Have you seen one of those things used to change lightbulbs in buildings with tall ceilings? Our church has one. It's a very long pole with a grabber on one end & the control on the other - I have no idea what they're called though.

I've also seen grabbers they make for the elderly that's similar but not as strong. I don't know if they could life the weight of a glass jar. HTH

A snake catching pole. You can make one out of a hollow pole or long cardboard tube. Put rope through it and try to wrap the looped rope around the lip and pull tight from the other end. Hope that makes sense to you.
