Enjoying some cooler Weather....

Finally!


Put a cute, quick craft together....idea from Pinterest - myblessedlife.net


I have a question for all my decorating divas.  See these little bottles.  They were a gift the first year I was married from my husband.  He used to work 2nd shift and would stop at a grocery store on his way home at times.  They would be marking things down.  I have had these bottles in a box...in a drawer.  I cannot part with them, but I don't know what to do with them.  I don't have any window ledges...and honestly, don't want to just line them up somewhere.  They are so small (about 2 inches) they would get lost in a cloche...so if any of you have any brillant idea out there, I would love to hear it.

I went for a long walk, well, long for me now....listened to the birds chirping...I love that!
Anxious for this weekend....to spend some time outside with my hubby.
Hope you all have a great weekend too!!

What about tablescaping with them. Putting them in the middle of the table and using one particular type of flower in all of them? Collections often look best when they are massed together. Or put them all on a round tray?

I love that pumpkin craft. Cute for fall.

XO,

You definitely should display your cute little bottles. Would they fit into a printers type tray? Sometimes you can find those that are just half the usual size. Go to my September Archives and look at mine called "so many tiny treasures".

I just had myself a moment looking at your little jars. I had a set of three purchased at the grocery store where I worked putting myself through college away back in the 70s. They were gold and one looked a lot like yours. I have used them for a single daisy on my windowsill...too bad about your lack of windowsills...not even a top ledge? But I have no idea where they are now and I really want to know.

I like your neat craft...everything must be looking like autumn now.

Maybe a little silver tray filled with those cute minis and a couple of tiny flowers sitting on a table?

How cool that you saved the little bottles. Show us what you did with them. I am enjoying cooler weather too but supposed to get hot again this week.

Hi darling, glad you felt like walking. What darling bottles, it's great that you've hung onto them. How about putting them on a cake stand with some florals around them and a few sprigs coming out the top. Can't wait to see what you come up with . hugs ~lynne~ or you could put them in a shadow box!! Would make a beautiful picture!! ok i'm getting off I would write you a book.. lol

How about a miniature "medicine cabinet"...a shadowbox made to look like one. They are just darling and I would never part with them either...they are way too sweet.

Love your pumpkin picture art! xo Diana

I loved colored glass and your bottles are so sweet. You certainly should display them on some sort of little tray in the bathroom or on a table somewhere. Such a shame to have them hidden away. Best wishes for a wonderful weekend. Tammy

I like the idea of tablescaping them with flowers or in a tray.
Also, some type of box with cubby wholes could display them.
Your frame turned out real cute!!

What a cute craft! I think you are getting better and better with your crafts, tablescapes, and decor! I can't wait to see what you'll do with the bottles. I'm sorry I can't think of anything to suggest!

Love the craft! I will try to remember that one for a recycled art next year, with the scrabble tiles and older frame it would work.
I thought a shadowbox with the bottles would be cute. I have one in my bedroom that has a couple of clear bottles found on my brother's property years ago...you could probably find one on line.

The bottles are really lovely and I understand that you can't get rid of them...why don't you put them on a tray? Sometimes if little things are grouped they appear to be one big thing. Love the pumpkin art too. Happy Sunday!

I like Sheila and Marigene's idea on a tray.
Cute pic from Pinterest. Too bad the owner of the pic didn't watermark it so she gets credit.
Hope all is well there!

Neat crafts! I love seeing those Scrabble letters used (wish I had some!)

My daughter collected little bottles when she was little. I think she had those too! She displayed them in an old Coca Cola crate! Sometimes you can still find them. If not, get some little boxes and glue them together to display them in!

Cute Punkin's :)

Those are sweet little bottles... could they fit in a little spice rack? I'll be anxious to see what you come up with.
