Guess what? Glass cutting and bottle recycling is groovy again!

If I may (indulge myself a bit)...

Growing up, my mom used to make wine (albeit very very sweet) out of blackberries every year and when got old enough we drank it out of jelly glasses. She canned vegetables we grew in our garden and our family rarely ate a meal outside of the house. The preacher and his wife had a standing invite to our house for Sunday lunch. We weren't cool enough for candles, but I did paint my nails blue once. I thought we were freaks and my mom was a nerd.

Now, as I try to grow my own vegetables, avoid fast food and make my own wine out of sea grapes and pineapple, I appreciate those influences. Not sure I could pull off the blue polish, but my feelings remain the same regarding the preacher....

The moral of the story is that, sometimes if you wait long enough, things may eventually come back into style LOL

I cannot wait to give it a go smile

Our old roommate in Canada used to make really nice drinking glasses from bottles. He did it all by hand and just sanded the edges.

I had always thought that would be a good way to reduce beach litter by turning watched up bottles in decent condition into glass art. Have seen cheese trays trays and all kinds of cool things made from old bottles.

My daughter wants to build our ourdoor kitchen (fogon)out of booze bottles used like cement blocks placing them in cement neck down.

I saw a lot staked head high in plastic bottles. Since they never deteriorate it made me wonder about filling them with water and using them like cobbles and laying them out then cover with sand and another layer of bottles, etc to fill low areas.

Hi Snoopysmom, Kindly let me know if you are still receiving wine bottles and where I can drop them off. Is it only wine bottles you want. As I have a rental home on the north side of the island, I find that my guests leave me with wine bottles and want to be able to recycle them. Thanks much. grin
