I am obsessed with bottles! I checked on EBay and was surprised at just how much bottles cost. Some of the bottles are painted pretty colors. Painted bottles eventually fade in the sun. It was really easy to find brown bottles but they were ugly! I had a few green and then I discovered blue. Cobalt blue. So pretty in the sun. Luckily, I found a brand of beer that bottles in the cobalt blue. I am set! I live out in the country so I've even found the cobalt bottles out in the ditch...I don't even have to "buy" the beer!
Then I had to figure out how to display them. A few years back I bought a really cute bottle holder for the garden. I got it out this year and then I gathered my beer bottles.
Then I ordered another holder with solar lights. The new bottle holder was so huge I had to then buy a shepherd's hook to hold it. My obsessing went on.
