BOTTLE ART IN UKRAINE

This is a spice bottle I re-purposed for a cappuccino sprinkler. It's on its way to England as I write. I love taking things that might be headed for the dump and putting them to some higher purpose. Plus, when I do something like this it gives me skills to teach in my classes and/or an example to show. The vintage jewel certainly adds a nice touch. Let me know if you like it. Your comments are always valued.

It makes me smile when I get a notification of your blog! I'm guessing the pearled top is a lid, not where stuff comes out! lol I was concerned at first. Enjoy! This bit of beauty will make for smiles.

That is so pretty! Would you mind providing a little more details for me... What goes in this? Would this sit on a coffee tray and be used to hold garnishes like cinnamon?

Hope you're having a great day!

Oh Colleen... you know I'm like you... loving to turn trash into treasures... and I love what you've done with this ordinary little spice jar turning it into something very special... just like you, the friend you're gifting it to, and the women you'll be teaching it to in the days to come! Bless you my friend... in His love and for His glory!
