Here is a closer look at the bottle labels. I love the thorns, makes them look really nasty! This time I didn't have a problem with drying the muslin tops......... Last time on the jars. I tried to dry them in my micro wave oven. Now in my OLD micro wave oven, I dried stuff all the time...no problem.... Now I have a new one. And it is much hotter..takes less time..whatever....... good excuse anyway... I tried..... Ok FINE..FINE!.. I'll tell... I put the wet coffee stained muslin tops in the micro wave and pushed 1 min...least I thought it was one min....OK OK I pushed 10 min and walked away, and got side tracked with something else. Well when I smelled the smoke, I remembered the tops in the micro wave... after I put out the fire ..I had nothing left but 12 little black ash balls where I once had 12 balled up wet coffee stained muslin tops. And STINK! So this time I used the real oven at 200 * because that is the lowest setting... they didn't burn but then I didn't walk away this time either.

Ok I have made up a few more bottles to take to the Craft Mall. Yep, I went dumpster diving in my sponser's trash! I boiled hot soapy water and gave these babies a real good scrubbing, I got the lables that were on the bottles all cleaned off. AND I made up another special label just for me!
