I noticed today that my neighbor had three boxes at the end of his driveway with a note saying “Help Yourself.” I couldn’t get over there fast enough to see what treasures might be in the boxes. Each box was full of old bottles, many of them old liquor bottles. I don’t need any bottles. In fact, I have quite a few empty bottles in my basement but I had to save at least a few of them from ending up in the recycle bin or worse yet, the dump.
These two are my favorites. The whiskey bottle has such a neat graphic on the label. I’m sure that I’ll eventually end of decorating something using it. The bottle on the right is a gallon sized Clorox bottle. My mom used to make lamps out of these. Perhaps I’ll do the same with this bottle.
Two weeks in a row my treasures have been free. I’m loving that!
