Transforming the ordinary ~

THAT is what thrills my soul!!!
Taking something common...something ordinary
and turning it into something BEAUTIFUL!
Simply by adding special elements,
wonderful touches
and a little TLC.

I wanted to share with you a sweet bottle I created for my friend Mary ~

I used a beautiful old earring I've been hoarding for years
to adorn the neck ~

I used a beautiful marble-looking cabinet knob with a cork
I screwed to the bottom to serve as the stopper.

And I had to use my very favorite label image...it's so gorgeous to me.

And with just the right amount of antique lace...and crinkled seam binding,
it all comes together!

Speaking of seam binding, I believe I've discovered my new favorite shade...
Check it out at Zipperstop...tell Jeff I sent you too!

It has the look of aged paper to me...
my photos are not a true representation but trust me,
it. is. wonderful!

Making things pretty always feels so good ~

Happy Tuesday precious friends!!!
hugs and love,

I lové bottles that take on artful play, each one telling a little story artfully. Your bottle has the most vintage sepia feel to it. It looks like it belongs at a prairie wedding of sorts, it so romantic in an elegant rustic way. Your bottle is a piece to love and she will too.

Now I think I may go try my hand and art on a bottle that you for reminding me how much I love bottles.
