More Altered Bottles


I made a few more altered bottles and am so enjoying it again.


This one has a genuine piece of an antique ledger inside the envelope dated Jan 3, 1894.
I don't have very much of this ledger paper left, but I love to use it in special projects.







I love to leave the lace in the shape that I found it in. I feel it adds so much character to the piece.


I added a tiny collar to this bottle along with a vintage clip on earring.




I have listed these bottles in my Etsy store along with my previous ones.

I hope you enjoy your Wednesday! I will be staying in because Sandi did what she does best last night.

"FALL DOWN...GO BOOM!!"

It was dark outside and was in a place where the lighting wasn't so great and I totally missed the last step
 coming down off a porch. My body gyrated this way and that way and I finally ended up on my butt...
after twisting my ankle/foot.  It is a little swollen and sore ,but thankfully it wasn't worse.

Linking up today with Becky over at Timewashed for Blissful White Wednesday.
Thank you Becky!!

Hello, Sandy
Your altered bottles are just glorious! Such beautiful laces and jewelry--you have put them all together so beautifully. I, too, love to visit garage sales and thrift stores, come home, and create something new with the treasures I find. It's just so fun, isn't it? Just found you today on timewashed. I will enjoy perusing your pretty blog. Hugs, Catherine (newest follower of your blogging adventures!) : )

I have a box of bottles left over from all the bottles I use to create. You make me want to put everything down and pickup bottle creating again. :)

Love all the laces and silk ribbons.
I am sure they make perfect holiday gifts for you.

Keep inspiring us all.
