VINTAGE BOTTLES


I love the sweet pale green
of these vintage bottles


A soft opaque barely there color
that reminds me of bits of worn sea glass
that washes up on the shore


This petite inkwell is a most lovely pale blue...
so pretty paired with the pink of a camellia blossom
and the silver of the vintage pewter plate.


So excited to find 4 pewter plates ~
they will be wonderful hanging on the wall or at the table.


Such pretty green stripes with the pale creamy color on this vintage linen~
it was the bargain of my thrift store finds at .25 cents.

I tried some sepia tones on a couple photos this week.

Hope you all had a wonderful Blessed Easter!

Our extended family was in different areas this year
so instead of a big gathering ~
it was a quiet celebration of Easter blessings.

Bunny pancakes (with chocolate chip eyes),
egg hunts, & Easter dinner

  5. Those old bottles are very sweet. I collect them too. The old apothecary and perfume bottles are my favorite. Hope you had a nice holiday.

  7. Very pretty!! I really need to start hitting the thrifts again and see if I have any luck. My last few trips were pretty disappointing, but if you don't look you'll never find, right? Love your bottles and plates both!

  12. I would love to paint one of those images. I have been painting lots of glass lately, and it would be fun to paint some glass with barely-there color! Pretty! I like your linens, too. Great post!

  17. I have a great little bottle I found in the countryside in Vietnam while digging a dish during a house building project. I cherish it. We think the area where I was digging might have once been an outhouse.

  19. I love vintage bottles! My husband had some weird kind of hot sauce that I was antsy for him to finish because I wanted the bottle. He finally finished it and I washed the labels off and put lavender in it, it really is cute!

  29. Such SWEET pictures! Oh wow. Why is it I love bold colors but when I see soft pictures with muted colors such as you are showing, I can do a total turn around. Just lovely.

  31. Courtney, your bottles and ink well are so pretty. My eyes are starting to perk up when I notice old bottles now on my thrifting adventures. So far I've been a good girl, since I have so many different collections I stop myself but it's getting harder, especially when I see your pretty photos. Hope you'll stop by this week for our giveaway, xxx tami
