Old Bottles and Jugs


Lately I’ve been browsing the Pottery Barn Fall catalog for some ideas.  One that caught my mind was the arrangement of bottles. 


Hunter had one in his bedroom holding his loose change which I was able to get him to “loan” me for the Fall!  He had one smaller clear jug in the barn that I also confiscated!


Then we took a trip up front to the old barn.  There I found a whole collection of old bottles and jugs.  I don’t know what they were originally used for.  This used to be a diary farm so I don’t know if he had something to do with that. 

I love the idea of making candleholders from them!  This picture is from The World by Us.

Look how Apartment Therapy used them to display vintage pictures! Way cool!

Now, I’m trying to get them all clean. This is no easy feat considering some of them had motor oil in them!  Once they are clean, I’ll show you what I do with them!

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Love the old bottles! Yes, Pottery Barn is just a wealth of inspiration. I'm excited to see what you do with your old bottles!

  3. Howdy are using Wordpress for your blog platform?
    I'm new to the blog world but I'm trying to get started and create
    my own. Do you need any html coding expertise to make your own blog?
    Any help would be really appreciated!
