I put a call out to one of my local lists for glass I could use for our recycled glass exchange. We have some brewers in the area and I figured I would get some great green and amber glass bottles, and if I was particularly lucky there'd be a blue one or two tossed in the mix.

Last night I picked up a box from my in-law's neighbors. He makes beer and mead. I did not expect the treasure trove that I got. Christine will be green with envy, because I got bottles in at least four colors, and one of them is a color I've never ever seen in a glass bottle before. I can't wait to get to work on this stuff.

Some of these things will fit in my saw, the rest I will need a bottle cutter for. Come on, bottle cutter! If I keep saying that to the universe, I might just get one, right? LOL!

I am having way too much fun with this. Oh hey, Christine, are we only exchanging components or are we exchanging both components and finished pieces? I'm up for either.

I figured we'd exchange materials for projects....but then exchanging what we made form the materials is cool, too!

I envy your colored bottles. But I take solace in the notion that none would fit in my kiln anyway...

Nope, let's just leave it at materials for now. I just couldn't remember what we discussed. I can't wait to see what creative things you do with this stuff!
