Have you ever heard this expression? “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.”
I for one, and a firm believer in this quote.My dear son called me the other day to let me know he had a lot of old stuff to give me. He is great about passing whatever he scores over to his mom, being that his wife does not want any of it. I am not going to try and convert her for a while at least. (tee hee) A lot of young people want the new stuff. All the glam and glory that goes with New store bought stuff. Well this ole gal must be from a different era. The older the better. Back to my son. He finds these old bottles, some he dug up out of the yard of their new/older home. There were so many different styles of bottles. Colored bottles, Cola bottles, Medicine Bottles. You name it. I had just found two great ways of getting the gunk out of dirt filled bottles, that have been unearthed. So I tried both methods. One is egg shells. A broken up egg shell inside the bottle with a little water and a lot of vigor in shaking… This works really well. The other is dried rice. Same instructions, water and rice and vigorous shaking. The bottles came out looking pretty good I must admit.
Now… what do I do with all of these bottles? I am open to any suggestions you may have… Bring em on…
