Budget Queen and Redneck wine glass...

Oh Yeah!!!

We had a vacation budget... with that I had to get (in order of importance)... Alcohol, food, treats..etc.etc.

When all the receipts were tallied.... I was $1.80 under budget.

I even bought all the stuff I need to make Redneck wineglasses.  Every year my family celebrates and unbirthday at the cabin...  I keep thinking I have explained this before... but I can't find the post.

Ok... every year for September long, it's our family UnBirthday celebration.  Everyone comes out to the cabin, everyone gets presents and we have UnBirthday cake.  The presents are usually really strange or goofy.  Case in point... for this year, I got my Dad an Antler toilet paper holder:

It's very odd and quirky and extremely hard to explain why we do it.  I can't even remember how it started, but it is what it is.

The only project I am going to do is make my Redneck wine glasses... part of my gift for my Mum.
They are a gag gift, but I couldn't justify paying $15 a glass, when I wanted to get her 4.  So I went to the dollar store and got 4 jars and 4 taper candle holders.... a little glass cement... and voila!!!
 The picture here is the real thing.... I will post my modified and MUCH cheaper version when they are done.
