I gotcher grey goose, right heeeya And I know what you mean about not being able to keep it in the house. I think the bottle is lovely. I've filled the bottom with white sand, and placed light sticks in them, then put them in the yard, around the garden during parties. The effect is very pretty.

Idea

VeraBlue, thanks for sharing your idea about the bottles. I feel so bad when I have to part w/something so pretty. I figure had about 6 bottles by now. Would have made a set. So I will start w/one I have. Another reason to get more!!!

Now I know you can smell vodka won't drink w/friends from church. Don't they call those kind of people closet drinkers or something like that? HalfBaked are you sure it was vodka?

We have an artist friend who works mostly with glass. One of the cooler (and extremely simple) things that she has done is taken a pretty bottle, like the grey goose bottle, and put it in the kiln laying down on its side. The bottle collapses on itself and turns into a long dish sort of. It is kind of hard to explain so I will try to remember to take a picture of one next time I am at my parents house. the images on the bottle do not change, just the shape of the bottle. My parents use their as a nut dish when they have people over.

Van Gogh Vodka has magnificent bottles, too.

Inthekitchen, I can always smell the 'alcohol' on a person's breath. I may not be able to tell exactly what type it is but it's like the smell of rubbing alcohol, for the lack of a better explanation.

She should sell them on ebay where we'd all have a chance to buy them. I think it sounds really neat.

She mainly just sells them at art shows and in her studio. I do not think she has dabbled into eBay at all.

Grey Goose

Send the picture to Grey Goose and see what they say? Maybe not, the price might go up. What a good idea! Just proves how unique everyone is in their ideas. I am sure glad it doesn't break when she does it. Must be a brave soul. Thanks GB.
