Bottle LOVE

Transparent    Aqua-Blue    Vintage  

Displayed with shells and jewels
Bottles, what is it about them that speaks to our summer hearts?

First two photos taken at my house,
these purple ones at an antique store
Are you also displaying bottles in your decor?

Love the aqua bottles and vintage canning jars. I had a lot of them when we lived on our farm in Maine, but I gave them all away when we moved :( But I do think I would have kept every one if they were like those gorgeous violet ones! With your name, you should collect those!!!

I absolutely adore the name Violet! Swoon! Yes, I do adorn my humble home with bottles... and glass jars full of candies; for the children, of course!

I think it is quite wonderful how in summer my love of blue is heightened. Blue glass is magical, don't you think?

So many lovely bottles! These shades of color are so delicate - and they fit with your name - Violet! Enjoy your week!

What lovely bottles! The aqua color is gorgeous. I have never seen purple ones like that before. My Mother would LOVE those, since that's her favorite color.

Hi Violet,

I love this post on Bottle LOVE! :) I have often put together little vignettes of colored bottles throughout my home, some purple, some cobalt blue, some pink.

There's just something about colored glass that is so refreshing, almost like water flowing freely in a corner of a room.

Thanks for sharing the different ways to decorate with them. They're gorgeous! :)

Such a lovely post. I recognize a bottle or two from my own collection. I had not seen the violet bottles prior to your post. Beautiful.
