Vintage Bottles


Thanks to everyone who joined in my first Treasure Hunt Tuesday today and also to those who just stopped by to see the treasures.  You still have time to join in and enter two different giveaways.

I have a serious crush on old bottles


Often, the bottles are missing their original lids
I love coming up with creative toppers
Left – a faux mercury glass Christmas bulb (Alex’s tutorial here)

This is an inexpensive acrylic cabinet knob


Another acrylic knob


I love using vintage doorknobs in the large bottles


This cork is seriously weathered


The lid in the center has a beautiful blue patina that sadly doesn’t show here


The knob on the left is from Hobby Lobby- it just looks old

*** I love this look ***
Beautiful old dusty bottles - still worthy of being displayed on a silver tray

  1. what a gorgeous collection. i love how you left them all rusty...worn and weathered. they all look so lovely on that silver-plated tray. j'adore how you used old doorknobs as "topers." TFS! :)

  2. This gives me great ideas for what to do with my old bottles now! I dig them up all over our farm.

  3. very cool
    You would love it here, there is a place out in the desert where these old bottles are piled as far as the eye can see, and they are free for the takin'
    You just have to get past the spiders, snakes and scorpions that live in the desert, LOL
