All the best ~Chrissy~

The etching of the bottle is so beautiful and the s&p shakers look perfect with such a lovely sprig of flowers...
Once again, it is proven that it's not the pricetag that makes an object beautiful.

Oh Chrissy look at that wonderful etching on that bottle!!! And what a sweet vignette with the salt and pepper shakers. I am imagining this is on a windowsill? Lovely photos as always and my I ask what the gorgeous flower is in the etched bottle. It kind of looks like a hydrangea but not sure-

DH is gone for the entire week so I hoping to get lots of projects done- he's says I need to cut my list of to dos for this week in half at least- we'll see how much gets done- hopefully my breakfast nook at least!

Don't you just love it when you find bargains and something pretty as well. I've been on a bottle search lately.

I love shakers too and always find myself buying them...now I know how I can put them to better use...thanks for the idea.
Thanks also for your last comment....I know I have to post more often but working 7 days a week has put a crimp on my blog time. Sooooo Sad about that.
