This is what is dressing up my bay window in my office these days. Do you like? Maybe you’re tired of seeing red roses from Valentine’s… well not me ;) This did go up the weekend before Valentine’s Day but I didn’t have the energy to shoot it right away – it was a busy weekend I remember and there was no point in rushing to share this little thing with the world ;) If you’re wondering where I got these cute glass hanging vases – well, I would tell you – at a grocery store and they’re not glass! Feeling a bit puzzled? I think this image will explain:
I just love seeing beyond what an item is intended for and I especially examine interesting packaging and think – what can I do with you? And these lovely Coca-Cola bottles, that were hanging around since Christmas – have finally gotten a way to be reused, revived and look beautiful again ;)
To Do: rinse the Coca Cola ball bottles, peel off label and remove cap and plastic ring, wrap some thin wire around the neck and hang in a favourite place (I hung mine to a drapery rod), fill with water and add in cute buds!
:: don’t have these cute ball bottles around anymore – how about using baby food jars? I think that would be also pretty ;)
What a way to up-cycle and feel good about reusing something that would go into the trash. I’m loving my window of roses and I hope you’re inspired to turn some trash into something pretty. xo
