Vintage Bottles


Old Bottles. So drawn to them. Milky and Cloudy insides. Chipped rims. Distorted colors of green, blue and clear...love them all. Love them plain, arranged in a group, or artfully staged as three in a row atop a bathroom window sill.
They can be found at a variety of American and European flea markets, but then the magic happens:

We love those with wax tops serving as miniature windows into a whimsical story...
and a hanging scrolled verse:

*Pearls of Wisdom {starts out "The Wisdom to accept myself, The Wisdom to know that all living creatures are equally important, The Wisdom to find something to learn in all mistakes...."; small $41; large $54}
*Wish Crystals {$44}
*Giggle Dust {$40}

We esp. love those that celebrate the love of an animal... *Dog Gone to Heaven (shows dog with wings and an angel standing by) {$62}
*Giggle Ball {$39}
*Remember Kindness (celebrating animal rescue) {$64}

We love those that have vintage-inspired Parisian labels {$24-48}:


And we love those with a religious edge:
