Hot summer nights

By Carol Clark

"If a June night could talk, it would probably boast it created romance." — Bern Williams

I happened upon this adorable rustic tiki torch online. After shopping every plumbing and hardware store in Grand Junction, my husband found the galvanized hardware at Lowe's. We promptly drank three bottles of wine for the project, (just kidding).

TIP: To remove labels from wine bottles place bottle in a 200 degree oven for 10 minutes. Labels will peel off easily with a razor blade.

The torches help keep the mood-killing mosquitoes away and add evening ambiance to your garden parties, or have fun creating a romantic secret garden for those hot summer nights. The best part may be drinking the wine for the torch!

Here is the link so you can get started tonight!
