Ginger Thyme Bottle
Another painted wine bottle. By now, you guys must think that I'm a total wine-bibber with all these painted wine bottles! Well, the answer is a big no. I've been collecting wine bottles for a while, hoping that one day I would use them. I've admired the lighted wines bottles that have been a rage for the past few years but that really wasn't my "thing". I'm a painter so of course I want to paint on them but they were not at the top of the list of items I had on my table to paint. Then one day I finally painted one and I've been hooked on painting them ever since.
This is an Aly's Room orginial. I laid it out on paper before I painted it, unlike the other 2 bottles I have painted freehand. I love gingers and hopefully will be working more with them.
I've added a prim tag, a salt dough ginger and homespun fabric.
Can you believe it's almost Christmas? I'm still shaking my head wondering where the year has gone. I'm simply not ready for Christmas, at least not mentally. My Sweetie has been doing most of the Christmas shopping; of course it's been cyber shopping but shopping is shopping in my book. Looks like "we" are almost finished with "our" Christmas shopping! Wow! I gotta say, "I'm liking this!". I have some items to buy for my Handsome but he's even done a little of "his" shopping by putting the items he wants on an online wish list!! All I have to do is go move the items from the wish list to the shopping cart, click the buy button and I'm done! Why didn't "we" think of this for the past 5 years?
With all that said, I guess I know what I'm getting for Christmas...no surprises there but my Sweetie does usually try to get at least one item that will be a surprise.
One item I'm getting is a camera. I'm thrilled about it! Last year I had no idea what I wanted but this year I knew I wanted a camera. For the past 3 years I have been using my sons camera, I'm sure he's ready to get it back. My last camera was a dud! I don't know if I hit the camera and knocked the lens out of whack because it took crooked photos. I would always have to tip the camera one way or the other in order to get a straight photo....it was frustrating.
Thanks for taking a peek.
Till next time.
