Winter has forced us to play indoors..........

  The weather has been chilly as it has been everywhere, darn Polar Vortex!

This has kept us indoors and cabin fever has set in so we decided to gather all of our unused pieces of glassware and start a new project.

As our coffee was brewing,  we set up the big folding table in the basement which was once covered almost to the ceiling in vintage clothing.  We set all of the pieces of glassware on the table, turned on Pandora and the wheels of creation were starting to turn slowly.

  We wanted to find out which glue would be the best for this project,  so we had purchased Marine epoxy glue which is water resistant.  We cut off the top of the glue and tried to put in on a paper plate to mix it and the brown side was hard as a rock.  We even tried a giant crescent wrench to get that side to move.  Finally we got a little bit of it out after Cathy was stomping it on the floor :) 

  As we mixed it and started to put in on the place we realized it had a horrible odor.  We thought we had transported ourselves to the elephant house at the zoo.  It was like we were wading in elephant dung!  I'm sure the glue will hold fine and the smell will go away, but WOW, what a shocker, :)
Once we scrape off our boots, we will be back to let you know how our latest adventure is progressing.

Stay tuned for more fun and giggles with the twins.
