The UPS guy got this yummy package to me just in the nick of time. Now I’ll have something to keep me occupied (other than shoveling) during the record breaking snow storm that is beginning to dump on us!
I BUILT that shelving ALL BY MYSELF
Oh yes I did!
I shopped for the lumber and did all of the measuring, sawing, screwing, and nailing ALL.BY.MY.SELF!!!
I got all of those lovely clear plastic containers and lovingly filled them with pretty pieces of tiles, glass and glass gems.
I also dug through the potting shed until I found this old thing…
I can remember when we got this up at our cottage. I was little… lets see, probably 9 or 10 years old. We made all kinds of glasses and vases out of old bottles. I thought it was just the coolest thing! It was stuck in our old boathouse for years… I’m not exactly sure how it made it down here to Virginia but I’m glad it did! I was about to put a wine bottle into the recycling bin when I started to admire the lovely color of green that it was, and it struck me… FREE glass for mosaics! I have plenty of lovely cobalt blue wine bottles saved up too!
The directions are priceless…
After each paragraph of direction it states ” DO THIS OR FAIL!”
I failed on my first bottle, but did OK on my second.
I plan on using the glass cutter to cut strips out of the bottles. Hopefully it works!
If I start earning a living with mosaics does this mean my wine will be tax – deductible?
