Champagnes....creams....and coffees ~
and I'm not talking about beverages :)

Seems I can't get away from this simple "no color"
or in Beth's words "low color" scheme!

You want to know why I love it so?
They're soothing colors....
they will blend in beautifully with most any other colors....
they'll NEVER go out of style....
and I think they're just wonderful!!! :)

I finished altering a neat old decanter today ~
with a beautiful label,
(can you tell I love this one?)
one of the most GORGEOUS chunks
of net lace I had....
of course aged seam binding, crunched and scrunched
with a little touch of ink here and there ~
and then a sweet accent of vintage rhinestones!

Oh, and if you'll look really, really close
you'll see a tiny vintage jewelry tag
that I found at an estate sale ~
I don't know, it's just precious!
(these photos are way too yellowish but you get the idea)

I think this would be great bottle to hold a button collection, don't you?

I just added the decanter to my Etsy shop....
and this lone little sachet as well!!

I'm so trying to be creative each and every day!!
It's just making the time....and doing it :)

Thank you all so much for cheering me on and visiting me ~
your comments are like honey to a bee!

Have a great Wednesday dear friends,
hugs and love,

Oh Dawn, it's beautiful. I just have to revive some of my plain old bottles. I'm sure you don't need to TRY to be creative each day, you ARE creative each day, using your mind to plan out your next project or the next or the next. ~ Abby ~

That must be the most beutiful altered bottle I have ever seen. I hurried up to etsy perhaps it was still there. Of course not. But it would not have mattered. Could you please consider sending stuff to Norway? Hihiii:))
