I used old salt shakers and bottles for flower arrangements at our wedding. I've been collecting them ever since.
These French Market Sparkling Lemonade bottles from Trader Joe's are just too pretty to throw away. So, we enjoy the tasty beverage (I like to add a splash of it to my water), and then save the bottles to re-use as vases.
That painting in the background is one of the things I would grab if ever there was a fire. It is by the ever so talented Andrea Luna Reece.
