Bit Of Alteration For Live & Love Crafts

Hello everyone how are you all? Vicky here today with a wee bit a of alteration for you.
Now as you know Sandra set the theme to use something new. Well as soon as I saw the challenge I had 2 idea's, both of them involved using new lace............mmmmm yummy.
This is my first idea.
I've altered a glass bottle for my daughter's bedroom, I lurve shabby chic & these are perfect for her dressing table.
I've been wanting to do one of these for soooooooo long, ever since I first saw one on Pinterest probably about a year ago..........maybe more lol.
Below is how the bottle used to look  before I got my hands on them.
The bottles are vintage chemist bottles, these are just 3 of them but I do have quite a few in all different sizes.

I absolutely LOVE this sentiment from Pion Design, its perfect & true. Underneath there is a small doily & underneath there layers of CheeseCloth. I attached pearl string around the edge of the sentiment.

Now this is one of the beautiful new laces Sandy has gotten in, this is called 'Lace Marie Therese'. this is a wide lace but I really wanted it on this bottle. So I attached it upside down then folded down the bottom half & attached Pearls to each drop in the lace. The top half is not fastened down so there is movement in it when the bottle is moved.

At the top is another new lace, all links will of course be at the bottom of this post. You can just see the CheeseCloth peeking out there. Added a resin lock & attached a small rosebud in it. The key I added a large-ish pearl to it, the same as on the bottom lace.

This is the back of the bottle as I didnt want forget that ;-). The image is again Pion & I did the same as I did to the front. 

I added a few flowers but just a few & popped in some into the bottle.
I have to say I had so much fun doing these, I've got another one completely finished & 3 others started lol. It was great to do something different & of course its definately shabby chic.

Well thats it from me. Take a look over at Live & Love Crafts, Sandy stocks such beautiful products, the best stuff to inspire us to create.

I have a poorly daughter so this post is scheduled, slept in the living room last night as Natalie was too poorly go to we worry if we are not in the same room as her when she is ill.
She is poorly with her chest, fingers crossed her inhaler helps in the next few days, she suffers really bad usually bless her :-(
