Bottle Baby

Hello Everyone...aren't these lovely? They look like amethyst gems, don't they? They're lavender bottle toppers, washed up from the Sea. They've been tossed about, tumbled, and smoothed over by the waves. Kind of romantic eh?
 They are perfect to top those lovely lavender bottles you have in your collection. Each one is unique in it's own way, no two are alike.
 They will be for sale in my Etsy Shop soon. While they last ;)
 Vintage bottles are all the rage in Cottage Decor. I really don't have any, other than this one (the unwashed rusty looking one in front). Because, although I stumble across them from time to time...
 I simply have too many "things" as it is. I'm sure you get my meaning. 
 But I do think, they're gorgeous. This one looked as though it had lots of character, so we decided to leave it unwashed for the photographs. 
 I like it sitting beside my beloved Sea Shells.
 The "Knowledge" bottle was a Marshall's find, on clearance for just $1.00...now, how could I pass that up?
I want to thank these two lovely ladies for the nice "write up" they gave me this week. They won one of my giveaways and were kind enough to post about it, and promote my blog. 
Thank you to :

Sherry of No Minimalist Here 
You two ladies Rock!

  1. Those stoppers are gorgeous, as are the bottles. This is the 4th blog I've found today doing a post about glass and bottles. Have I missed something?

  7. I am a bottle lover also,,,not sure what it is about the patina of those oldies...purple is my fav from years of sunlight that cause the magnesium to turn them that great shade of lavender. The toppers are cool. Cant believe they came from the ocean...cool! I am a new follower via Excuse Me While I Buy This Junk...Wanda is one of my best gal pals and lives less than a mile from me. Visit me sometimes...Tiff

  17. I love the little purple stoppers. Wow. I am so glad that years ago I made my husband save and bring home every bottle he found as he dug up the streets of Philadelphia. I have a great vintage bottle collection because of him. I found you at Good life Wendesdays. Oh and your Knowledge bottle is gorgeous. Swoon worthy!!
