besides a few metal goodies, we happened upon several pretty glass bottles and light fixtures that needed a bit of TLC-but they had potential, so i did what i do with most things i have ideas with: put them in the garage until i get sick of them and give them to someone else b/c i am too busy to do that "project" i was supposed to do with them.
not this time though. one of the gems that i found happened to be a case of these adorable soda bottles from The PoP Shoppe, a Canadian soda company that i thought was gone, but as you can see even has a Twitter account.
so i now have a case or so of these adorable bottles and i am trying to kind a way to make them into something functional...i would love some advice, here are some of the things i have been looking into.
-tiki torch: how adorable are these tiki torches, found this idea in a link from ReadyMade Magazine (of course)
Design Sponge also had this super cute plant holder idea-SO INTO IT-but i must say i would rather use "not-as-cute" bottles for this project (attn: Anarchy-i see an idea for a workshop on tiny gardens!!!)
this might be a good option.
-a long time ago, i made a bottle tree in my garden in Irvine, this might be a great thing to have in Santa Ana too.
i would LOVE any other suggestions or links...to be continued...
