|Vintage Bottles become Flower Vases ~ A Beach Cottage|
Whether it's Vintage, Found or Used…bottles and jars provide extremely charming decor for your beach home or getaway.
I've loved old bottles for as long as I can recall…probably back to the glass bottles of Coca Cola that I drank as a child (yes, soda pop use to come in glass bottles). A favorite childhood toy of mine was a half drunk bottle of soda that was turned into a musical instrument. If you have no idea what I'm talking about then you are too young to know the joys involved with playing the bottle with your childhood friends.
Any way, old bottles are one of the most versatile of all things around and work PERFECTLY in a beach cottage environment. A vintage glass bottle can be a simple vase for the most lovely of flowers or can be a memory jar filled with sand and seashells as well as a holder for bath salts or bubble bath. Of course, bottles are simply charming by being grouped together on a shelf.
I love how they reflect light to assist in creating a glow in my cottage…I love that they are old and have a history…I just simply love them! Here are some favorite ideas for incorporating old bottles and jars into your beach cottage decorating.
