coastal vintage bottles and sea glass
Fri 10th, May, 2013
Yeehawwww, happy Friday Beach Cottage lovelies.
Guess what? For Mother’s Day the Beach Cottage Crew are picking me up in a vintage limo this arvo, we are heading straight to the airport onto a private jet and we are flying off to Paris for the weekend! Can you believe it! How lucky am I????
Not really, I am spending the weekend with a day at the beach, hoping to go to a farm and with the vegetables, which I might add, have been attacked by rabbits. So not impressed with this, after all that hard-work with the no-dig garden I was so there. Then the other day I went out and found things had been stripped. Like stripped back to their bare veggie bottoms. The cauliflowers are about gone, just little tufts left, ditto the cabbage, kale and chard. Though I do have thriving rhubarb.
So jets and Paris will not be on the agenda but netting and digging will. It’s a tough life.
Anyway, this, as you can see is a collection of sea / ocean / nautical coloured coastal vintage bottles that I decided might like to take themselves over to the deck table and gather together for a little styling session. Better than cleaning toilets.
You see I have been spending a bit of time on pinning lately in the evenings – it started with me looking at kitchens for this kitchen renovation that hopefully will start soon, moved to bathrooms, skirted around coastal fishing floats and ended up with vintage bottles.

So this is my version of some of the lovely inspiration floating around on Pinterest in the vintage bottle department – I collect these but none are special in terms of their brilliance, collectability or worth and none cost me much…but all mean a lot to me…anyone up for a bottle fest?
A nearly perfect thing to collect – easy to display, easy on the pocket, easy to hide in the back of magic wardrobes and easy on the eye. ‘
‘til we meet again
