Very unexpected, I walked into the opportunity to start another “yard sale” project. Two days ago, I dismantled a “bottle tree.” The bottles and vases were extremely dirty (two years accumulation) and I planned to wash them before offered for sale. “Unexpected opportunity” because the neighbor was doing laundry when I went to the refrigerator/freezer. (Left-overs and “too spicy” to add to kettle of beans being prepared for this “winter week.”) As the washer discharged, I was able to “wash” bottles and vases in warm soapy water. (Otherwise, only cold water to that sink.) I feel rather smug about completing another project on a chilly day in the comfort of the laundry room!! ~~ Sixty-five degrees outdoors as I publish this at 1:40 PM.
