I found these old bottles in Canton, and had a blast decorating them with items from my stash. The bottle on the left may date back to the 1890s, and that ornate pop bottle in the center is really old, too! I loved the rusted chain and vintage jewelry together. It's a fun and easy project.

Each bottle has its own very unique "personality."

So great!

BTW....I went to your website as well!

And I tried your berry cobbler recipe. We had ours for supper tonight......DELISH!

My mom and I live in the DFW Metro area and will be checking your website so that maybe we can make your next craft sale!

I enjoyed your bottles and all the goodies on your website as well!

Thanks for sharing!
