...to stand on the meeting of two eternities, the past and future, which is precisely the present moment; to toe that line. -H D Thoreau

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be
to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. -

Simple Rhyme For a Gentle Bottle Cap
Snag art is here, popped off and left for dead.
Rusting, rusting into dust,
How can a bottle be so clean
When the cap seems so mean?

Yes, It’s TT time.
For a more mature sampling of BOTTLE go to Theme Thursday...

  7. Mirror, mirror on the wall,
    which are the most cheerful bottles caps of all? Harnett-Hargrove's for sure!

    They could also be miniature tart forms, all dressed up and out on the town on a fine spring day! :-)

  15. I love rusty things. I especially like to use them in my gardens. They just go right back into the earth so naturally.

    Makes you wonder.

    Did a cork shortage cause the invention of the bottlecap?

    :-/

  19. Somewhere I have a vague memory of putting bottle caps on the bottom of our shoes so that we could walk on ice?? I cannot fully recall it, though.
