Boos from booze

My daughter sent me a text message a week or so ago with a picture and the message "I think you should make this"
This is the picture she sent and I can't tell you where she found it because I have no idea but it's rather cute.

So one of Wade's friends owns a local bar. They serve a pretty darn good breakfast and it's really cheap. We were in there on a Sunday morning and while we were eating I was looking at all the booze bottles behind the bar and I said to Wade "I wonder what they do with all those when they're empty" He asks why of course and I told him about the picture Amanda sent me. So I said why don't you ask Tim if he'll save me a couple.
I never really gave it another thought until he came home with a box on Friday. There were 2 bottles shaped like the one in the picture Amanda sent and then these.

and this


and this one is my personal favorite.
So now I guess I have to attempt to make that "Bottle of Boos" that Amanda thinks I should make. Personally I'm guessing that what she really meant to say was "I think you should make this for me" Since I'm in to the primitive look now I also thought that some of these would look good with some antique labels and the grubby look.

I hope you'll find some way to keep the details on the Crown Royal bottles...I love the shape of the tequila bottle...Almost makes you want to go out and buy a bottle - for crafting purposes..(Uh huh...)

Bottle of boos is pretty cool. ...could be prophetic, depending on the pace of consumption.

We don't frequent bars that serve breakfast....Hmmmmm, must be livin' in the wrong place. I do recall that in New Orleans, the bars are open all 24 hours.

Okay, got side tracked here....I LOVE this idea. And of course, me being a Halloween Freak [some think so anyway]....this would be so cool.

I can't wait to see what you'll do with them!!! Just can wait. Hop to it...get busy!!!

The play on words is too cute and I really like the idea of using old images for your bottles. I have vintage music sheets that I feel like I have applying or waiting to apply to just about everything.

BeadedTail said...

I love the Boos bottle idea! That's awesome! If you could get lights in there that would be extra fun. Can't wait to see what you do with them. I am sure they will be bootiful!

Rose said...

Awesome collection of bottles! I look forward to seeing what you do with them.

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Quite frankly, I would rather see bottles like that full of the booze (at the start) and actually in front of me (for the duration). Sorry.

Sheryl Hastings said...

I can't wait to see what you make with those bottles! I know it will be awesome.
