... to decorate our home.
(Who remembers that song?)
So I've been collecting wine bottles.
I have several in storage.
These, ten, are from, ahem, Thanksgiving ... yes,
my family had a lot to be thankful for.
My initial inspiration was to use the dark green glass
to hold, and preserve, my homemade
colloidal silver someday.
I need to get a colloidal silver generator, first,
and then that'll be another fascinating topic ...
but for now I'm thinking I will use the dark brown glass
of beer bottles for that endeavor instead.
Anyway, I remembered something I saw a couple of years ago.
Drinking glasses, aka tumblers, made out of wine bottles!
I remember trying to research how to cut the glass ...
but I seem to remember it's arduous.
I also remember something about blow-torches
and some kind of special cutter thingy
and files and vices and water
and all sorts of intimidating things.
And it all seemed so very complicated.
But now my interest has been revived, and I think
I will look back into it.
Some fancy-smancy magazine was selling a set of four
for, like, $200 or some crazy price like that.
I'm thinking they'd make great gifts ...
after my shelf is full of various sizes
for my own pleasure and use :)
My little brother is a bartender at Copper Creek
and I can get access to all kinds of bottles
of all different colors ... woo-hoo!
