Old Bottles into Shabby Treasures


One of my many addictions along with vintage
linen, vintage rhinestone anything, and
vintage buttons, is vintage bottles!

Today I made, once again, a new trio
of vintage treasure bottles.
These usually don't last too long in
my shop after I list them,
we'll see how long these do.
I had so much fun creating them.
I should have taken a picture of my workbench
by the time I finished!
 It was the biggest creative mess ever!

 
The tops, for some reason, always seem to take
the longest for me to do. These corked tops
were made with vintage jewelry, hat pins,
beads, and chandelier crystals.


The inside of the bottles house vintage linen scraps, lace, faux pearls,
wedding buttons and lace.


This rhinestone piece was an old
vintage pin.


Marie Antoinette is a piece of vintage stained fabric.

The whole collection is so sweet, shabby, and pretty!
Make your own sweet set as this, or if you
are too lazy and have a little spending $$,
stop by my shop to pick them up!

I can see why they don't last long in the Shop, a beautiful way to upcycle lovely old bottles with embellishments of other Found Treasures.

Gorgeous bottles! I'll bet you had a pretty little mess when you were through...but I always say that a creative mess is better than tidy idleness! I'm visiting from White Wednesday!
Best Wishes and Blessings,

Lovely bottles! I just made two that went in to my booth yesterday, I put some dried lavender inside and instead of corking them I just covered them with a piece of old cloth, they smell fantastic, I also put a poem inside. These are the first I make, so I didn't know how to price them, my husband says I priced them too cheap, I was surprised that he loved them and wanted to pay me $30 for a bottle lol!
Thank you for sharing your creativity with us!
