Hey, procrastinators among us, do you need a last minute Mother’s Day gift? How about a bottle of liquor for your mum.
LOL! I couldn’t help myself. Okay, okay — before you get all up in arms — I need to preface this post by letting you know that neither myself or Pretty Handsome Guy are big drinkers. We will occasionally partake in a drink once in a while. When I say occasionally, I’m talking maybe once every two or three months. If I have half a glass of wine, I’m ready to go to sleep for the night. Yes, I’m a cheap date!
To further explain the situation (because honestly I’m not sounding too convincing am I), the boys and I were walking behind our local grocery store and stumbled upon a discarded Bacardi bottle. I picked it up so that I could add it to our recycling bin when we got home. But, by the time I arrived back, I saw the bottle in a new light.
It had a similar shape and color to the antique bottle that I bought last year when I toured Southport, NC with Leen.
The antique bottle cost me $20! The Bacardi bottle, at a total cost of FREE, was a thrifty score!
After soaking the label off and then cutting the metal neck off the bottle, all I had to do was fill it with water and some fresh cut flowers.
I only wish my Mom was still coming to visit, but her plans changed at the last minute.
Because if she was to arrive for Mother’s Day she’d be greeted by a pretty bouquet, and a bowl full of soaps for some sweet fragrance.
Oh well, maybe next year. And now this procrastinator has to find another last minute gift for my mum!
Now next time you see a whino’s bottle in the gutter, will you pick it up and upcycle it?! I dare ya’!
