All Tied Up

My mom called me today and said that she found a really
cute idea in one of her country magazines.  It was little glass
bottles tied together with twine and used as vases.  She sent
over the picture with a little note “I like these”  Which translates into
”Can you make this for me?”  I love to try new things and I really, really
like this idea.  I can see more of these in our future…what a great way
to brighten up someone’s day.  Maybe a neighbor, friend, teacher….

I used 3D glue dots to hold the jars together.  The next time I make
them, I will use smaller glue dots.  Then I applied Elmers glue onto
the jars and wrapped the twine around them.  Baby wipes are great
for cleaning up glue smears.

I wanted to take a picture tonight of the vases with flowers in
them (I am slightly impatient and waiting until tomorrow was not
an option…haha!)  So, at 8:25pm I was trying to cut semi decent
roses from our rose garden.  Not to bad considering it was
quite dark outside!

Not sure why I feel the need to share this factoid but I based my blogname on the B in my name (my nephew calls me Bee)--and my name is Bethany too! I find this interesting and amusing. Love your blog too--nice and cheery.

These turned out great! You must have quite the rose garden too! Love how your mom drops subtle hints like that -- mine does too. ;-)
