bottle caps

by karen #1965 third grade teacher so i was on facebook and Miz Thang the artist said something about liking or loving bottle caps...i mean look at them...they are a little nostalgic or retro or hip...


well, this jiggled my memory a bit...i remembered a friend of mine had given me a cool cross made of bottle caps...here is a few angles for you, just in case you feel the need to make this cross for yourself...





now...if u are artsy, u think that is cool....but, where do you get all those bottle caps...well you could 1-drink cokes, 2-drink beer, 3-get your friends that drink beer and cokes to save them for you, 4-find them on old playgrounds with a metal detector, 5-hang out at bars and beg the drinking folks for them, or 6-order them off ebay...ebay prolly your best bet because some of the other ideas really would be hazardous to your health and well-being...

check out these possibilities....

a picture frame?


magnets?

another cross....


a whistle necklace...you think it really works?...

earrings to match that whistle necklace?


and oh...the master...vincent van gogh's "starry night"


and what about these thingamagigs?


so...go get you a coke...and have a coke and a smile...and save the cap...cause there is so much art to be made with these little dudes...or just save them and sell them on ebay!....   :)

can't find a good song with the word "bottle cap" in it....i hope the word "bottle" works for ya instead!

the police, 1979
Just a castaway
An island lost at sea
Another lonely day
With no one here but me
More loneliness
Than any man could bear
Rescue me before I fall into despair

I'll send an SOS to the world
I'll send an SOS to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
Message in a bottle
Message in a bottle

A year has passed since I wrote my note
But I should have known this right from the start
Only hope can keep me together
Love can mend your life
But love can break your heart
I'll send an SOS to the world
I'll send an SOS to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
Message in a bottle
Message in a bottle
Oh, message in a bottle
Message in a bottle

Walked out this morning
Don't believe what I saw
A hundred billion bottles
Washed up on the shore
Seems I'm not alone at being alone
A hundred billion casatways
Looking for a home
I'll send an SOS to the world
I'll send an SOS to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
Message in a bottle


happy january 22, 2011!
