I got this beautiful vintage
seltzer bottle on my visit.
I decided it was time to change up my coffee table with
some spring items and I included the seltzer bottle.
I gathered some spring-like items and
arranged them on this large wooden tray.
This was a real nest that we found several years ago
in our crepe myrtle tree. I painted some eggs
to give the nest a more realistic touch.
I placed the nest in a tarnished Revere bowl. Then, I
placed the silver bowl inside a bowl that belonged to my
aunt. I think the floral edge is a perfect pop of
color and goes along with my spring theme.
The bottle has a "foot" or rim around the bottom. It's
different than my other seltzer bottle. It also has
a glass straw instead of a plastic one. The nice folks
at Plunderosa Antiques told me how to take the
top apart so I could clean the inside. They suggested
I invert the bottle and spray the hardware
with WD-40 and leave it over-night.
It worked like a charm!
It's bright and cheerful.
A new peace lily. A couple of books
and a bird paperweight complete the collection.
I'll bet you're ready for spring, too. What are you doing to get ready for the warmer weather?
