I was ready for a new centerpiece on my dining room table...something light and summery!
Sooo…over several recent visits to Goodwill, I have managed to accumulate the perfect solution…a collection of wickerwork bottles! (That furry blur is Baby Kitty exiting stage left!)
I love those wonderful demijohns that I have been seeing in my favorite antique store…but they are expensive and the scale is just wrong for my small house! So when I found these, I knew I had just what I needed. Baby Kitty reminds me to tell you that I spent a total of $6.00 for all five bottles! Woo hoo! Now that’s my kind of bargain!
And here’s how they look on my dining room table! I love the look…fresh and summery just as I had hoped for! Let me introduce you to my new little loves…
…starting with this one that I have shown you before. It’s actually a vintage rum bottle from Puerto Rico…fun! The little wicker cap comes off…see? And the original owner was kind enough to leave the label intact!
The square bottle is now the home of some ivy I have been rooting since last fall. It was in a Mason jar on the kitchen table, but I like its new container and new location better! I added a little raffia bow.
Gotta love this mismatched pair…for oil and vinegar, I presume. I love it that they still have their corks!
And finally, a little jug that may have held syrup…so cute! I cut one of my hydrangea blooms to fill it.
It is actually a lace cap that I have had in my yard for a while now, but it’s looking less lacy over the years. The color, however, has become more intense.
Here’s a final look. Not bad for a handful of Goodwill bargains and some cuttings from the yard, huh?
