Altered holder

Hi there!
I've spent a lovely morning catching up with friends (no Pilates for 2 weeks) ... we had a light lunch ... coffee and a lot of chatting ... I took each of them a one of my mini notebooks as a little gift ... and I also showed them my book bird houses ... they loved them ... so I am going to make them a few. When I came home and put on my computer ... I saw that my altered tins have been featured on Brag Monday at the Graphics Fairy!! Wow! ... I am both amazed and thrilled ... Thank You!!

Yesterday at the little shop I told you about ... I picked up this lovely candle holder


As you can see this holds 3 ... they did have them in singles and doubles as well ... but my intention was not for candles as those glass jar inserts are quite a decent size 


No ... my intention was to have this in my kitchen to hold my hand wash ... hand cream and anti bac  and pretty as it is I just had to 'perk' it up a little ... so half an hours later here we are ...


A bit of stamping ... well a lot of stamping ... I got carried away


But I do love it ... and now I am going to put French labels on 3 glass bottles to finish it off as it doesn't quite look right like this does it?


Hee hee ...
I am also altering a terracotta pot at the moment ... like those shown on the Graphics Fairy ... (I hope it works for me ... I am being patient with fingers crossed till tomorrow) ....
And the best part about my 'soap' holder ... it only cost me £4.50 ... ($7.50)... Yup, I'm one happy girlie at the moment.
I'll be back tomorrow with the CCCB challenge of course so I'll let you know about the terracotta pot 

Have a lovely day
Till soon

What an innovative idea! Looks so very beautiful!!!

I want one like this in my kitchen, my powder room and my bathroom. Ros you never cease to amaze me; I am drooling again. ( I am spending a fortune at tissues the last few days haha)
Absolutely fabulous. Just a quick tip; maybe you can find some cute bottles at IKEA. Their bathroom department has some cute bottles that would make a perfect fit...

And congrats on being featured at the Graphics Fairy; these hydrangea tins are AMAZING. But I already told you that:)

Have a lovely evening; I wrote it before but I really mean it. You have been quite busy the last few days so I hope you enjoy an evening on the couch :)
XXXXX
