MY NEW BOTTLE AND THRIFTY FINDS

Thought I would show you my little heart bottle this morning that I made a few days ago.  I've had her in a box ready to work on but just kept putting it off.  She looks very romantic.This is the back of the bottle.  Wanted her to look good back there too .The rose is one I hand made to fit the bottle.And these little cuties are the bling.Here is a pair of beautiful bling that I found last week.  They will look good on something unless I chose to sell them.And my last find is 20 pretty handles that I found at the goodwill a few days ago.  I use these kinds of things on that curb furniture I pick up and transform.
Hope you like my little goodies and hope all of you have a great day.
Hugs, Pat

I love your bottle,especially the beautiful rose you made. How did you make that rose? I have alot of bottles that I pick up from garage sales, with neat designs and shapes but wonder what to do with them. Thanks for the ideas. Love your blog. Audrey Clemmons

Pat, your bottle is outstanding and creative to say the least. The handmade rose added just the right touch...I would love to try to make a bottle so beautiful...not very creative.

What a gorgeous bottle! You are so talented!
Thanks for sharing your snake story - you can truly feel my pain. I guess I've been blessed - as I never knew a snake could get IN your house! I have no sense of security now and all belts, cords, even the kitty's tail have scared me senseless and have become "the enemy". I know, I'm a nut!

Just beautiful! I love the shape of the bottle and how you decorated it. And your "little found chest" is just perfect as a bedside table. Love it when we get something for free! After all, it needed a good home :) :)
