I'd had my eye on this antique perfume bottle at a local antique shop since November. It was on sale this weekend, so on Sunday I picked it up at 55% off. It's etched on the bottom "Raphael, Paris, Made in France", and even has the original "R" wax seal and cord around the neck. This will look great in my bathroom with some of my other perfume bottles and clear glass containers!

Rhubarb freezer jam:
2 bunches rhubarb, chopped into small pieces (approx. 6 cups)
4 cups sugar
1 small box raspberry Jell-o
I washed and chopped up all the rhubarb, and tossed it with the sugar in a large pot. I let it sit for about an hour to let the rhubarb release some juice. I simmered it on low for about half an hour, then turned it up to a rolling boil for 5-6 minutes. I lowered the heat again, and added the Jell-o, then let it simmer for another 10 minutes.
It was a total experiment, so although I am sure the flavor is super the consistency may be a little off. Either way though it will be great. Oh- and rhubarb jam/sauce/compote is one of the best things ever on vanilla ice cream!!!
