I love your altered bottle! I also confess to having many thrift shop "treasures" waiting to be altered - I wonder if it is some sort of sickness???

gasp! i adore paper whimsy everythings! and i love what you do with all those everythings. you astound me and yes, you are lucky to design for them. but i also think that they're extremely blessed to have you. thank you for such a generous giveaway. it seems that my finding has been restricted since moving to an island and just to bump up against your work leaves me breathless and inspired and i tuck it all away for some day. angelheartcottage@comcast.net

Oh Jill your bottle is beautiful! Wish I'd seen your article before I went to a Collectables Fair today - I saw a set of 5 bottles going for just a few pounds and didn't buy them because I didn't know what I would use them for.... Never mind, I can still enjoy looking at yours. Margie x

Your site is so lovely & SO inspiring... I have many, many treasures (Too many! Yes, it is a sickness, but a delightful one!) waiting to be altered, & I always find it intriguing to view how others may choose to transform a similar ugly duckling. Continue the creations; they are divine.

You just gave me a "kick start inspiration" to create something with my own little thrift goodies. Beautiful use of the laces with the vintage photo and the unusually shaped bottle is perfect to frame everything.
