Personally, I love receiving home made gifts....I believe it really shows someone's caring...So, this year I have made altered bottles for my very dearest friends.
This one is for one of my oldest friends....Jan.....she is also my traveling partner....along with her wonderful husband Jeff.
Used an old bottle I found in Montana...with various pieces of embellishment. Please notice the picture...of the peacock...my friend LOVES, LOVES, LOVES birds...in fact she has geese as pets...LOL LOL...so I thought this would be right up her alley.
I know she would have a peacock if she could coax one to stay in her yard. (O:(O:
The next bottle is for my friend, Shirley.
She and her husband Tom are very religious and involved deeply in their church...so I thought this would be appropriate.
This was made with an old vinegar bottle I had saved because I loved the shape....topped with an old door knob...and embellished with a little Christmas ribbon and some pearls. I also made this one see through from the back and added a little sparkle to the inside of the bottle..by doing this I felt she could use this at other times than the holidays.
I hope they like them...as they were made with love and caring....
We have a dinner group that meets once a month...and this Saturday I will be able to share these gifts with the girls..
What have you been making this Christmas??
Hugs from my home to yours..have a beautiful weekend.
