Hooray! Not only have I been able to get back to doing some crafting, but I’ve remembered that it’s Wednesday!! I’ve been busy over the summer with my little B&B but bookings have dropped off now (thank goodness!) so I have a bit more time to myself.
I have a neighbour who owns a restaurant, which is where 19 of the 23 bottles came from. On a Thursday, our church runs a cafe, called Step Inside, and we have little heart shaped ‘paddles’ for food orders. The idea is that customers stand the paddles on their table so our wonderful volunteers can deliver their food. They’re not very tall and sometimes the customers just lay the paddles down on the table so they can’t be seen. I thought it might be an idea to have these bottles on the table so the paddles can be placed in the top of the bottle, making them easier to see. I still need to put labels around the necks saying, “Please place your food order number in this bottle.” I also need to buy some sand or fine gravel to weigh down some of the bottles.
