~decorating with vintage bottles~

I love re-purposing vintage bottles into vases, holders for bath salts, or just putting them on a windowsill and watching the light stream through! You can add fun labels....

I think if you group them, the collection looks a lot more interesting.

Perfect for wildflowers on a country table setting!
Use them in the bath.....

Aren't they gorgeous?
Head over to my etsy store to pick up some of your own!

I just love how femine those look!I actually have a blog about this in my 'drafts box' I was just waiting to find a few more bottles. I knocked off a pottery barn idea and it is really turning out great...just need some more bottles.

I love bottles and actually am a little obsessed with them. I have been known to buy something just for the bottle. I did a fun post recently on bottles that you might enjoy, here

I love all kinds of bottles and jars - once I decided to actually use them, I have found so many uses for them. The old ones with the original labels are my favorite - thanks for the beautiful inspiration pictures!

I saw the vinegar bottles in Country Living and immediately wanted to dump out all the vinegar until I realized it was a plastic bottle! Do they even come in glass bottles anymore? Love that look!

I love vintage bottles and have collected a few over the years. My favorite way to display them is to place them where the light can filter through them. Other than that, I just have them scattered in various locations througout the house. I also have some bottles that are not vintage, but they caught my eye because of their shape and/or color.

I do so adore vintage bottles and am always trying to find new ways to use them! There's just something about the aged glass that is so lovely.
