What a wonderful use for old plastic milk bottles. I don’t know who made them (they had a lot more patience than I am endowed with) but they were an extremely effective decoration. I particularly liked the milk bottle fascinator – I will give it a go for my next Melbourne Cup function.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

  1. Argh! Beware the GIANT jellyfish! Are those milk bottles or the holders for them? They look like our soda (or canned beer) six-pack rings. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six_pack_rings Great last photo. 😀

    • Supposedly all the decoration was milk bottles but I know the 6 pack holders. I think someone painstakingly cut the 2 litre bottles into rings and stuck them together. Glad I wasn’t in that workshop. Yes the fascinator was great. All the ushers had them but they all were different. This one I thought had made a superb creation. 🙂
