Ashgrim, that looks awesome!! I love the wee bottles, how big are they and where did you get them?
And I feel compelled to unroll the tiny scrolls and examine them. Amazing bookcase!

LOL, Knickertwist. I am sure everyone reading this board will recognize this conversation.
I was at dinner with some friends last weekend. We opened some sparkling wine and of course I asked for the cork (and the little wire thingy.)
"You want this? Why do you want it? What are you going to do with it?
"I don't know yet."
"Do you really want this?"
"Yes, I really do. I collect stuff."
"What kind of things do you collect?"
"Everything....trash really."
Laughter
"Do you really want this?"

My DH doesn't throw anything out anymore, he comes to ask me first:"Do you want this for anything?" Good man!

dear Knickers, I'm sure many of us would love the insider info on how you broke those "already installed" acrylic windows.

Or maybe it's just me, but I really really want to know.  Cheesy

As to the trash conversation... here's one I had a long time ago:

Other Person: [holding up some piece of trash] Do you want this?
Me: [in a disgusted voice] Why the hell would I want that?
Other Person: [looking hurt and heading toward pissed] Because last week you yelled at me for throwing the milk jug lid away!
Me: [sheepishly] ... oh... right... no, I don't want that... thank you for asking.

 Cheesy

These stories of scavenging trash are so familiar. I have a colleague at work (I'm a prop builder) who I think slips over the line into Hoarder. This was a conversation from the other day:

Her: What did you do with the protective sleeves from those tassels you sewed on this morning?
Me: I put them in the garbage.
(pause) Her: Which garbage?
Me: The one by the door.
Her: Thanks! (exits quickly.)

Sure enough, the next time I passed by, the tassel sleeves (which were just rectangles of acetate held with a bit of tape) were sitting on her workbench, waiting to be stashed somewhere. Sigh.

Thanks for the waterstain, Knicky! It's great. I love the covered furniture - always creepy. And I second the request for a broken window how-to. I would have said it couldn't be done in situ, and would've suggested prying the windows out and replacing them with "smashed" ones of acetate or styrene.

Craftsunderground, you know those wire cork thingys make great wrought iron chairs, right?  Wink

Glad to find a group that would find this funny, but not unbelievably odd:
My daughter was married two weeks ago and the night before the wedding, we had 105 people to dinner at my house and one of the beverages was hard cider with those great twisted wire cork toppers. The whole evening I had to keep myself focused on guests and catering and keep myself from running over to the beverage table to keep the wires from being thrown out (of course they all were). Luckily, the wedding next day made up for my disappointment.

I wonder, if windows can't be broken, perhaps score some random lines with a knife/razor, and then brush black paint over it and wipe it off right away? The paint would stay in the lines and it'd look like a cracked windowpane.
