I'm in love with antique bottles!

Since I'm addicted to reading blogs and looking at the most wonderful things that other women create... I've discovered antique bottles! I was inspired by some of my favorite bloggers who decorate antique bottles. I'm trying to find my own unique decorating style.

This is my newest creation. I made it yesterday. I bought a bag of feathers at Wal-Mart ( i think) and I knew I wanted to somehow use them on my bottles, but just wasn't sure what to do with them. So, I sat down at my craft table and just started putting things together to see how they looked.... this is what I came up with. I really like it! I think it's my favorite now!

This one I like, but I'm still not sure about the black velvet ribbon. I may try a cream colored satin ribbon and see how it looks.

This little bottle looks like it's wearing grand-ma's pearl necklace.

I think I'll just leave it like it is.


Tomorrow I'll be taking these to put in my display at the Red Horse Antique Mall. I sold two last week, so I'm hoping they will be successful.

(I'm not sure I can part with the newest "feather" bottle though...)

I love your "altered" bottles! Where did you find those fantastic bottle? (Don't know that I could part with those creations...)

Hi Brenda... thanks for stopping by. I buy most of my bottles at the antique mall where I sell my jewelry and altered bottles. There's a vendor who sells them for cheap and they're all so pretty and OLD! (I'm secretly hoping the feather bottle doesn't sell...)
