Pass The Bottle

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

There are so many types of bottles in the world. Decorated ones, rustic ones, baby bottles, glass and plastic and so many more.

We want to see all your bottles and all about them here. Please tell us what it’s for, who would use it and more.

Judy from JAMsCraftCloset says I love old bottles. I found this one at an estate sale. At first, I thought it was a huge (4×4 Inches) old ink bottle. Later, I thought it could also be the bottom of a hurricane lamp. Right now, it is still a mystery to me what type of bottle it really is. To make it even more unique I decorated it by hand painting a floral design around it. I think it would make a lovely bud vase. Can you help in deciding what this bottle was used for back in the day?

Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals says this vintage spice jar was found among my mother’s thing after she passed. It is probably from the 60’s. I thought it would be nice to repurpose it.

Beautiful golden vintage spice jar decorated with sari ribbons, burlap, jewels and altered art. The bottle is colored with golden and maroon shades. The top opens and closes with a locking mechanism. Place your treasures inside or just use for home decoration.

Cindy from Cynhumphrey says pass the bottle please! Oh wait, it looks like this upcycled wine bottle has already been passed around and is now a beautiful flower vase! It would look great in the kitchen, dining room, entry way, or office!

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio said what better way to christen a New Year than with a pop of the cork of a bottle of champagne? Our gold and black printable art is quick and easy to print and perfect for DIY party decor. This instant downloadable art can be printed out to table sizes on up to large posters and since it’s digital, it can even be used as New Year electronic greetings.

Marta Gotliba from GottliebTextiles says so, this is a set of two cotton dish cloths, a perfect gift for a couple who shares their love for wine and/or beer. And as we know, both beverages live in the bottles.

Happy New Year – 2016

How are you celebrating the arrival of 2016? Here are New Year items from members of the Christmas In July team.

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says:

Hip Hip Hooray!

New Year’s Eve is all about a party: celebrating with lots of noise, drinking champagne, staying up to see the fireworks the ball drop in Times Square.

New Year’s Day is a nice meal with cherries jubilee for dessert. If I’m with my kids or relatives, we usually squeeze in some family movies and slide shows to reminisce.



Patricia from TheOldBarnDoor says:

No welcome to the New Year is complete until after the Tournament of Roses Parade – whether seen in black and white or colour it is a sure-fire way to ring in another year. That’s what New Year’s is all about – tradition!



Heather from ArabellaBlossoms says:

Butterflies for a new beginning. New Year’s Eve/Day is often the time when we make resolutions to tidy and reorganise. This desk set is a solution to a problem. Designed and handmade by me for a published magazine commission, it is a one-of-a-kind set. Suitable as a gift for someone special or for yourself to brighten a study or work area.


Sue and Misty from shabbyshopgirls says:

As a seller of Vintage items, we are always trying to find fun and different Holiday related items. This great graphic Mid Century Modern Paper Tablecloth and napkins set, is for those crazy New Year’s Eve Parties, where the next day all you have to do to clean up is throw it away!



Alexandra Richards from EyeLoveKnots says:

When I received a new set of crochet hooks, I knew I wanted to make one pattern that I could use them all on, and so I decided on a cute star applique. I thought they’d make great appliques for Christmas hats and cards, but made in a sparkly thread or yarn, they are also great to decorate the table with for the New Years Eve Party!


Natalia from expressyourself says:

These handmade snowflake silver light and shiny, I decorated with colorful glass beads. Great for New Year’s!



Marjorie Scenna from mscenna says:

Who doesn’t love a little bling for New Year’s Eve? These sparkling pearl and crystal beaded earrings are sure to add a touch of sparkle to your special outfit!
