Pretty Little Vessels- more glass upcycling

If you can't do the wine bottle thing (previous post), how about old glass bottles? I have a collection that my aunt dug up in an old foundation on my grandparent's farm. In addition to the bottles being great vessels for flowers, I love having the connection.

Ideally, I would have put flowers in these, but all are drenched from our rainstorms.

By no means is this a novel concept, but I hope these images bring a bit of loveliness and inspiration to your day! And perhaps they're pictures you've not seen before?

OK, these are new (not repurposed), but still pretty!

Decorative Glass Bottle

Love the pop of color on these (and note the orange and pink!)...

A softer, more subdued arrangement... very romantic.

A friendly, cute grouping.

A beachy twist...

LOVE the orange in these.

And we'll end with more bright fun!
