Found Bottles and Flowers from my Mother's Garden | October 30, 2009

Today I thought I'd share with you some floral inspiration along with a 'show and tell' of my ever-expanding bottle collection!

I have an unhealthy obsession with bottles, especially vintage and especially in beautiful blue hues. Walking into a vintage store can generally be quite hazardous to my bank account. Try as I might to kick the habit, I inevitably end up returning home with yet another bottle only to add yet another unnecessary item to our space-challenged apartment. However, they sure are pretty! :)

  1. Mini clear vintage bottle from Chapel St Bazaar
  2. Linmaren Bottle from Ikea
  3. The Bell Patent bottle from an antique shop in Canterbury
  4. Large, wide blue bottle from Spotlight
  5. Small blue bottle with vintage label from A Day on Earth (former Chapel St store)
  6. Vintage Imperial Brewing Co. bottle from Izzi and Popo

... and flowers from my mother's garden.
