I was feeling a little bit "crafty"!!!

I had so much fun decorating my first bottle a couple of weeks ago, I decided to do a few more. I bought the bottles at Michaels (I think) for only $1 each. I can't remember exactly where I got the rabbit, bird, flower and heart stickers (either at Michaels or JoAnn's fabrics). They are Martha Stewart and were on sale. The ric rac, ribbons, and buttons I got at JoAnn's. I enjoyed being creative. I hope you enjoy them, too. I am going to keep the bunny rabbit one for myself. I am giving the bird one to my sister, Myra, and the flower one to my niece, Robin. We always go for a little "happy hour" on Friday afternoons when Robin is finished with work. I am going to surprise them with their bottle presents. Hope you have had a good week so far. The weekend is in sight!! Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit today. It always makes me smile when you do.

What beautiful bottles! I love how you've decorated them. They look so lovely grouped together. I decorated a brown glass jar today -- still want to do more, try different things. Trying to repurpose old bottles and cans. We have stores here where you can get glass stuff for .30 cents -- I might have to see what I can find. Have a great weekend!:) Tammy
