Just Bottles

Bottles, as seen at Country-by-the-Sea, June 27

I love this little display of vintage glass and doodads. I took the photo yesterday when I picked up my new (old) dresser. (Which is fabulous, by the way. What a deal!)

I have a small collection of vintage New Jersey seltzer bottles that were just sitting in a box in my closet collecting dust. I picked them up over the years at tag sales, and never really did anything with them. But, just when I was about to get rid of them (in my constant-yet-futile attempt to downsize), the shore house came to be. Now they're happily united in the kitchen window.

In New Jersey where they belong.

Hi Rue! Thanks for stopping by! I'll be following your home, too. :-) I'm cleaning (and cleaning!) the dresser but I'll post a pic in its new home soon.

Please Sir, one thing missing from my bottles is that FABULOUS window on your blog today! How I would love to have that in the backdrop!

I love using old bottles as vases--- something about the fresh and old mix that gets me goin! :)
