I have always loved artists and the beautiful art they create. Renoir is one of my favorites. In school, my favorite subject to teach was art. About this time of year, the children would create masks, and I was always amazed at the wonderful work they did. I have also enjoyed seeing the art that so many of you create. I love to look at your amazing creations. And so, I started thinking maybe I could create something, too. A few days ago, my sweet friend, Julie Marie, from Idyllhours showed some vintage bottles. They were all so pretty and so unique. I then remembered that my daughter-in-law had given me a vintage looking bottle a few years ago, and I decided to try and decorate it. My sister, Myra, helped me print a vintage label from France. I am not sure what it says, but I think it is a label for soap. I put it on the bottle, tied some pink and green ribbon around the neck of the bottle, and accentuated the ribbon with an old pearl earring. I also added some silver hearts above the label, and topped off the bottle with an old rhinestone earring. I had so much fun. Now, I am looking for vintage type bottles to decorate some more for friends and family. Thank you all for inspiring me to try a little creating myself. If you get the opportunity, please go and visit Julie Marie at http://idyllhours.blogspot.com/ She is a sweet lady and has a wonderful blog.
I recently met two nice ladies who are willing to share their vintage images with artists to use in their artistic creations. I know there are several others who share their images as well, and I think their generosity is great! Carol Anne at http://carolannesboutique.blogspot.com/ and Jany at http://lookinthenook.blogspot.com/ graciously share their images with you. Please visit them when you have the opportunity.
I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Thank you for stopping by for a visit. I love having company!
