There is no time like wine time!
Can you tell I am falling for autumn type junk? Im not sure what this is, but who cares? Its awesome. Dont you think?
This little trinket needs a little clean up before wine time. A little spray poly goes a long way! Dry time 20 minutes! Thats all I had to do to get it ready for service.
I cant seem to get away from the letter E. I love the letter E. I wonder why? Hmmm....
Im looking for something to fill the hole in my life.
A large glass vase fits the bill!
A perfect fit! Im using this as an ice bucket, but it could just as easily be used as a dolled up vase or a candle holder.
What can I use this for? Hmmm...
A cork screw perhaps?
Put some ice on it and enjoy!

You all know I like easy, peazy, lemon squeezy.... but this project falls under the category of a no brainer. You gotta love that! Me too.


Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.

What a cool piece! I'm always amazed at how even individual junkers can all see something different from one another in a pile of parts!
I do have a question, maybe you can help me with or someone else in the community. What is a good way to clean old keys? I have a jar of them, a few are rusty, but mostly grimy and/or some corrosion on them. I'd like to use for projects, but I think they need a bit of restoration just to be able to see the great details on them.
Thanks so much!

I can't believe the vase fit so perfectly, but then again I know the variety of sizes you have just hanging around the house. What an awesome piece of junk you found. I have no idea what it is but we don't care, we just love it. Wish I was there to share in the finished product, but I think I'll stay home for a while...I have a pile projects to catch up on. Love ya, Georgia Posted: 10:28 pm on September 5th
