Ashes of Roses


These vintage bottles aren't particularly seasonal, but they were so pretty that I wanted to show them to you. The bottles are the handiwork of local crafter Dana Ruprecht.


Dana takes vintage bottles and adorns them with antique bits of paper, stamps and pretty stickers.



Each bottle is tied with a pretty ribbon or bit of lace.



Dana also does handmade cards, gift tags and other crafts that are re-purposed, designed or simply inspired by antique materials. Visit Dana's website, Ashes of Roses by clicking the link.

Today, I will link this post to Lisa Gordon's the Creative Exchange. To see some really great photography click the link. I will also link to Tuesdays Around the World. To see what is happening in other blogger's worlds, please click the link.

  6. Thanks for the comments everyone.
    Don't be fooled by "cute" my friends! Mator is pure trouble with a capital "T". He spent a good part of the afternoon deepening several potholes in the garden!
    It looks like a full update is in order. I will see if I can do a new puppy post.
