A Little Change

Made a small change to one of the tables in my living room. I added this antique green bottle that my mom just gave me. She's had it displayed in her kitchen above one of her cabinets. I kept bugging her how much I loved it and I guess my persistence payed off because she gave in and gave it to me :) It was given to her as a house warming gift 43 years ago. It's a mineral water bottle from Buffalo.

It looked to bare by itself so I added  a few twigs to it.


                  Here's what was there before.



                            Here's a close up.



Still  my favorite french painting that I purchased from Ann http://onsuttonplace.blogspot.com/











Have a great week and stay cool! As always I appreciate and look forward to your visits!

Martina,
The green bottle is stunning in your vignette, dear! I, like you, adore the sheep print. The hues in the print are more defined with the change in accessories!
Fondly,
Pat

HI Martina!
LOVE the green bottle... such an unusual shade of green. I can see why you were an admirerer for a while!
It looks great next to your lamb painting, but I did not know Ann sells paintings???
How did I miss that?

Such a pretty vignette,
Thanks for sharing!
