Hello! and happy Tuesday (although it feels like a Monday).
The sun is lovely and bright this afternoon and everyone in the supermarket is all smiles and laughter so all is good with the world.
Do you remember my post about etching on glass jam jars? Well if you missed it take a look here. Just after writing that post I was at the local auction with my sister and one of the auction lots was a box of vintage bottles. I managed to be the winning bidder but it wasn't until I got them home and had a rummage the I realised how many there were.
All shapes and sizes and in gorgeous shades of blue, green, off white and brown.
There are some really interesting ones, it probably took me a good 3 hours to clean them and sort and chuck any badly damaged ones.
I think this one is my fave as it's got a little spout and is only about 5 inches tall.
This tiny poison bottle is oh so handy as it's handbag sized and very discreet for all those moments when you feel you want to kill something!
There are little perfume bottles too.
So what I'm getting at is that these little, and not so little bottles, are destined to be etched and sold in the shop as little vases or to be displayed just for their beauty.
This is another practice run on a jam jar before I could summon up the courage to etch one of the oldies. When the tea light is lit the leaves cast shadows on the wall and looks beautiful.
And here's two of the vintage bottles with a little Drop The Weasel finishing touches added. It's quite tricky to photograph these bottles so apologies if you can't see the designs to clearly.
I'll be going through the products in the shop and removing some and adding new items this week so I'll keep you all updated as and when xx
