Parlez-Vous Francais?

I think I may need a trip to Paris, because it's been on my mind now for quite some time. My creative juices are leaning that way and I don't seem to be able to stop myself.
I came across this wonderful glass bottle with a metal base. (The bottle comes out of the base)
This was screaming to be something shabby and very french. I think I nailed this one on the head! : )

I took the base and some gorgeous french tissue paper along with my favorite medium, Modge Podge, and look how beautiful this is. A collage of tissue paper covers the base and does it well too.

Now, if you know anything about me at all, you know my love of tags. I took some of the tissue and created a collage on this tag, making this a very sweet set.

This is an open bottle, there is no top. I decorated the neck of the bottle with vintage lace, seam binding ribbons, a beautiful key and a rose. There is a vintage clothspin at the top with a little vintage looking clock on the front. Very shabby and very french.
I can see this used as a place to hold pencils or pens. I also think it would be lovely just sitting on a desk or table. What a lovely gift too.
This is available in my etsy shop.


  1. Very cleaver and very cute! I would love to know where to get that tissue paper?!
