Sunshine in a bottle


The green bottles used to hold Italian soda, the blue one used to hold sparkling water. 99.9999999% of the time I throw them into the recycling bin, but something made me hang on to these three. That was around 7 or 8 years ago. I still love how the sun shines through them. Funny how ordinary bits of colored glass can brighten up a kitchen windowsill.

BM,there's this wonderful place in Antipolo where they used wine bottles tied with abaca twines to make a wall in the garden. It was so wonderful I though of doing it too but then, I don't have that many wine bottles :D

Great weekend to you!

Now only you know why some people do keep some of the bottles for display. they do give out some nice lights when the sun shined through them :)

The blue bottle is brilliant.
Reminds me of the old Milk of Magnesium bottles when I was a kid.
Have a wonderous week :)
