Saturdate with ???

I did not get a chance to make a Southern Plate recipe this week, but I do have a craft I did this week.

One day, after Shad got off work, we went out in the woods to look for glass bottles. We had so much fun, and found 12 milk of magnesia bottles! My mother-in-law said it best. When I told her about the 12 m.o.m. bottles,she said, "Someone must have been ReAlLy sick."



As soon as I saw the first one, I knew it would make a cute bud vase, but I thrilled when we found so many. I knew they would make a great centerpiece. I got some brown stickers and put "{blessed}" on the bottles. (Some of the letters are crooked. Oh well! It's still cute!) They make some $5 daisies look wonderful!



Yesterday's trash is today's centerpiece!

    What a cute idea! And how cool that the woods near your house contains such goodies! I love the contrast between the blue and yellow. Brightens the day right up. Thanks for sharing. I'm visiting from JFF and hope you'll stop by Cottage and Creek and say 'hi'.
