A New Look for Old Bottles!


I collect bottles, I am sure they aren't worth much, but for some reason I have always been drawn to them. I was trying to think of a way to decorate with them doing something different.
So I went on to the Graphics Fairy and did a search for vintage labels, these are some that I found!


Here's the bottle before, pretty... but a plain Jane.


Now look at her!! She's a beauty!


The labels really dress up the bottles.


Here's part of my collection. I found the cabinet in a consignment shop a few years back, 
it was one of those purchases I didn't have to think twice about!


They look like little gems in a sea of glass.



More of my collection, some of these will be getting labels too.


...and some more


Here are some I put in my shop.



Thanks for looking!

  1. My daughter in law really loves bottles. Right now she has an 18 month old, very busy son and no room. Maybe I can collect and store some bottles for her to display later.

  2. What a great idea Bridget. I think these look so sweet. They would add so much to a vintage bath.
