Been workin’ on a few more bottles. Trying different looks and different techniques so creativity doesn’t get in a rut. Speaking of ruts, I saw a couple of bottles in ruts by the side of the road while I was out for my morning run. I’ve gotta remember to go back and get ’em … you know, just doin’ my part to keep the roadside clean!
Some Women Like Shoes. I Like Bottles!

I found these bottles at my secret garbage dump. Cute shapes crying for a makeover.
The French labels are, of course, from the Graphics Fairy.
The little angel postcard was a recent find at the Kane County Flea Market.
The bottle on the right is aged with paint, the bottle on the left is not.
The small aqua bottle, also from the dump, wears a sash of simple lace.
These tiny treasures are about 3″ high.
How ’bout this crusty bottle? I can’t get the top off to clean the inside,
but the more I look at it, the more I like it grungy and dirty.
All three were found for free … at the secret dump, of course.
I’ve started work on a couple more bottles.
Now hopefully I’ll remember to go pick up those bottles alongside the road.
