FRENCH ETCHED APOTHECARY
&
VINTAGE FAN

I found these gorgeous French etched Apothecary jars and Perfume bottles a few weeks ago. I was chomping at the bit until I had time to frill them up. Finally on Saturday I turned on the glue gun and went to town. Yup, burned two fingers doing it too! Ouch and blisters.

I love the way they came out. Today I'm back down at my Glitz and Glam station dreaming up a few more wreaths and hopefully beginning some holiday treasures I have in mind.

I also posted a pic of the coolest vintage fan I found on my antiquing trip two weeks ago. These are the hottest new item and was shown on the spring cover of Romantic Homes. It's on my website for sale.

See you all in the blogesphere and have a great day everyone.

Hi Cathy,
OHHHHHHHHH your bottles are lovely. What a pretty job you did. Hope your blisters are better. I always do the same and forget the cold water near by! I love your vintage fan too. I found one recently in cobalt blue and have it in our library. Love it!

Thank you again for stopping by my anniversary post and giveaway. Your kind words meant so much. We are back from our trip and I learned that vacations are over way too soon. LOL!!
See you again soon.
hugs, Celestina

Love that vintage fan. I've had lots of customers in my shop lately asking for old fans. They like them painted white and then distressed.
