Love in a Bottle

Hello my friends, have you ever wished that you could bottle up your love and send it to those who are sad and lonely or just down on their luck?

 
Well, we all know that love isn't something that can be bottled, but I've come to realize that it's something we can share.
 
 
Much like how you uncork a bottle, we can open up our hearts and let our love overflow.
What good is love if we can't pass it on to others?
 
 
I had filled this crate with some of my aqua bottles and placed it on top of the cabinet in our entry for Winter.
 
When I pulled out the Valentine d├ęcor I sat it on my kitchen island.  Before I knew it I started embellishing and filling the bottles with bits and baubles of love.
 
 
An old Ball jar with a glass seal got a glitzy clock and red mercury glass heart.
 
This slender beauty needed nothing more than a sweet pink heart tied on with a piece of lace.
 
 
I filled some of them with vintage pieces of silver.  I don't have a lot, but love it!
 
 
This red votive was picked up a couple of years ago on clearance at Ross.  It came with the little silver charm and I tucked a metal heart inside.
 
 
 
 

 
Little bottles of love sit on my kitchen island.  And although I can't bottle my love up and send it, they are a sweet reminder for me to share my love with others!
 
 
 
 
 
I had a little fun playing with photos of this gorgeous ruby red stopper.
 
 
Sending you some love today!
 
hugs,
Jann

Jann, your bottles look so pretty. You've inspired me to treasure hunt some vintage bottles to decorate. Thank you for reminding us to share our love with others, it's usually easier than one may think, sometimes just a smile in passing is all it takes to turn someone's day around. Hugs,

Your aqua bottles with red hearts and the ruby red glass stopper are so pretty. I love to see the sun shining through antique aqua glass. It looks especially pretty with the touches of red glass.

Ok I was able to grab the love you sent, thanks for that cause I needed it! Love you bottles, and the red color, I just love red and don't know why I don't use it more. I'm just starting my Valentine decor, I'm still burnt out from Christmas?
