If I Could Just Bottle It!



Well, we all know Christie Repasy is the "rock star of roses"...
and to that end, she created these gorgeous bottles using her
artwork that my sister, Bee, went nearly apoplectic over...
she literally sent me a text at work about them!
Alas, Christie isn't selling them on her site.

So, I had some vintage bottles...not really prefume-y looking...but bottles,
and some of Christie's note cards so I thought I'd give it a shot



some laminate & ribbons...





some brass findings & shells...



I'll be keeping my eye out for some prettier bottles and I need some
French ribbon to try again...until Christie sells them on her site,
we'll just have to make our own!




And while I was at it...I save these spaghetti sauce cans to hold my
brushes & scissors, etc.




so, I thought I might as well jazz them up a bit too...while I was
"Repasy-ing" things!




I know my tools must feel so much prettier now!

We love you to join in our GIVE AWAY





The DIY Show Off

  7. Perfect! Your upholstered cans have given me a project for those empty tea canisters that held ginger peach tea bags. I stuck them in a cabinet, knowing they'd have a use if I just waited a bit. And here you are, the project Fairy Godmother.

  21. Good Morning! What beautiful bottles! I love your blog and especially the sea shells. Can you tell me what you use on the pink sparkley ones? I have an "ocean" room, since I live smack dab in the middle of Wisconsin, with no ocean near at all, and would love to add some just like yours to my room! Your work is just lovely! Shannon :O)

  34. Oh, I love these. Made me think of the big green wine bottle I have, that I was going to make a dish soap holder out of, but I can't get it clean enough, it would be perfect to decorate. The cans are perfect, too, I just got my scrapbooking area set up and need holders for my tools, you clever girl. Thanks
