Lavender Bottle








What did I buy at Webster?

This lovely lavender tinted bottle.
I love its tall and interesting shape.

 The seller from New Hampshire said he retrieved it
 from an old dump in the mountains.

Won't it look lovely with my lilacs this spring?

In the meantime, I played around with it
 and one of the purple bottles I found at Renningers in January.

Hope you are having a good weekend!

I love the manganese bottles! I imagine a fence made out of hundreds of them! Wouldn't that be lovely with the light shining through?

Where is Webster? Is it in Florida? I have been thinking about making a drive to Mt. Dora to Renningers. I am hoping it is worth it. I have heard good things.

Some splashes of color in blogland, brought to us all by Laura at 52 Flea. There is something so calming not only about lavender flowers, but lavender color as well. The perfect name for such a wonderful color. xoxo tami

Laura,
Just bee-youtiful! These are colors that I live with and I love them (add a little grey and seafoam green to the mix). The pictures with the white backgrounds look like paintings. Is this some magic you learned in your photo classes?
Hugs and prayers,
Suz

Bohemian said...

Lovely hue of Lavender this bottle is. Here in the AZ Desert when certain bottles are left exposed to the intense heat and sunshine they often turn lovely shades of Lavender.
