Bygone Bottles

Covering old bottles with lace and vintage embellishments... ohhh what fun I've been having with these beauties. Sourcing the old bottles was a challenge, and I'm still on the hunt for more, but covering them in vintage finds was the real fun part, I've boxes of lace and old buttons and jewels that were just crying out to be used!
I've printed the little slogans onto printable cotton and then aged them by buring the edges with the end of a hot incense stick, it makes for a great way to get that age old look.

These are being made primarily for up coming Fayres that I'm attending but I will list a few on my website in the coming weeks if anyone should be interested in purchasing them.

I love old bottles too and I'm always hunting in thrift shops for them. These are so pretty. Love all the vintage elements you've added. Glad I stumbled here. I enjoyed my visit!

beautiful finds! Lovely bottles, I haven't seen them covered with old lace before, but it makes them look sort of more fragile than glass..! love it.

And I can't wait to see the pictures' of the home. I love getting peeks into homes so much sometimes I dream about wandering through strangers homes...!
