Fun New Project

Sorry I've been playing hookie this week. I'm trying to catchup at the "real job" and pay some attention to my family. The dogs needed to go to the Vet, and Christmas Errands needed to be run.
Good news is, I think I'm done with the bulk of my shopping, which means I can relax a bit and not be so anxious about the holidays.

Awhile back I found this cute little bottle and it screamed necklace to me.

I've gotten so many compliments on it that I've decided to make some more. Right now I'm hunting for just the right bottles.
On my hunt I found this great heart shaped bottle, but it was kinda large. I have a dealer friend who loves to wear big chunky necklaces and I knew it was perfect for her.
So last night I brought it home and transformed it.

You can see how much larger it is than mine in the pic below.

I can't wait to give it to her tomorrow.
So if you know of a good supply of small perfume sample bottles in various shapes I'd love to know about it. As far as I've seen no one else is really making these. Finally an original idea. Sometimes I feel like all I do is copy other folks ideas or simply morph them a bit.

I'm looking for interesting shapes, that are kinda flat on one side at least, not too round or square. My mind is even spinning with ideas for next year's ornaments.
Have a great weekend.

That necklace is so pretty! I'll bet you could run across some cute vintage bottles thrifting at a flea~market or some second hand stores. They wouldn't be multiples of the same kind, but you could pick up some unique, one-of-a-kind beauties! Just a thought... :)
Have a great weekend!!
