Do you ever feel like you have angels looking out for you??? Seriously, I believe in angels and I am certain that they are watching over my son. Recently, Raa (my son) had stopped by our house to pay us a visit, but we were not home, so he got on the computer to kill time until we got back. The door bell rang…it was one of our neighbors from two houses down. He asked Raa if he had a black truck, Raa responded “yes” while looking at our driveway and realizing his truck was not parked where he had left it (he forgot to pull the hand brake up). Raa literally feels his heart stop beating L Our neighbor proceeds to tell Raa that while he was standing outside his house smoking a cigarette, all of a sudden, he sees a the truck, slowly rolling down our driveway (our house stands on top of a slight hill in a cul de sac in our subdivision). The truck is rolling down backwards, makes 180 degree turn, and hits our neighbor’s cable box, which slows the truck down, runs over his water hose and then hits the side of his (brick) house. At this point Raa starts thinking he is going to have to pay for this man’s house and that his life is in ruins....that is until my neighbor starts laughing at him. He says “son, calm down, everything is ok” no major damage to the house, only to the water hose. Your truck did leave me without cable though. Needless to say, Raa apologized profusely. My son took pictures and when he showed them to me….. my jaw dropped to the floor…literally…J
I told Raa, there are angels looking out for him, he responded, “I know Mom… if they only knew how to drive J ”
Hope you enjoy my story!!!

This is how my idea of my “GENIE IN A BOTTLE” Moroccan style bottles was born:
Once upon a time, while cleaning my fridge, I realized there were at least ten (almost) empty bottles. I knew I needed to clean the fridge, (my poor fridge was screaming for help) but was not too excited about doing it. I began to get everything out; BBQ sauce, steak sauce, mustard bottles, spaghetti sauce, soy sauce etc etc etc. As I was throwing then into the garbage, I was thinking that some of them had a really nice shape. Needless to say; I dug them out and washed them. What can I do with them?? I thought …huhhhhh
I literally started doing cart wheels in my brain!!! (emphasis in literally)... Wow… why didn’t I think of “this” before? …Anyway, after contemplating infinite possibilities, I decided to paint the bottles. I did not want to just paint them like so many other glass painting projects I have seen (that really are not that “interesting”) I wanted my bottles to be whimsical and different, something that you don’t see everywhere, something that will grab your attention and make you go…. oooh, aaaah ..WOW THESE BOTTLES ARE UNIQUE!!! …Well the idea was born. I was going to paint them MOROCCAN STYLE and fill some of them with my homemade soy candle mix.
My bottles turned out adorable!! some are great as liquid soap dispenser in your guest bathroom, child's room decor, flower base, candle holders, or as decor for a Moroccan style date night with your hubby (like we had) ...infinite possibilities for my Moroccan bottles!!
At the end of the day, I felt like I have had a very productive day….that is until I remembered that I never finish cleaning the fridge J

Recycled baby food jar turned into an Morrocan style tea light candle holder. Painted with a technique that gives you a "stained glass" appearance. The flame reflects the colors through the glass creating a whimsy and cozy ambience. I have mine in my deck around my flowers :-)
