A message in the bottles...

What's not to love?

The light dances off of them in magical ways.

They are the perfect centerpiece...

Some are intricate...

Others resemble jugs...

There are bottles that add a little umph to your toiletries...

And there are those that just look cute on a night stand..

No need to wipe the vintage off, fill them with flowers and call it a day..

Or just fill them with your favorite beverage (like sweet tea) to add a little pizazz to your party!

There is no wrong way to use a glass bottle,
Add a message and toss it into the sea...

While on my thrift shopping sprees I came across these glass dreams...

I think they set me back a whole $3.
Some more that I found, with the added bonus of a vintage flour sifter.

You may be wondering what the Lewis and Clark box is underneath...It's full of Cast Iron Skillets.  I can't wait to put them babies to use.
Thanks for reading my ode to bottles and jars!
Until next time...

Happy Monday to you all!

  12. Hi Natalie, lovin' your blog. The glass bottles are so cool! Not long ago I purchased a cast iron dutch oven, brand new at a discount shop, for less than $14.00 pre seasoned, I love it. Your skillets are perfect for Fall Cookin' ;) I'm your newest follower, thank you for your lovely comments on my blog as well. tami from the high street cottage
