Mixed media Monday has "Embellish it" as a theme tomorrow... Well LOL.... fits me to a tea and this bottle, so I am entering it. Not only did I embellish physically.. but especially for the Dear Joanne Wardle... I am embellishing the story of the bottle too. (apologies in advance if I dont coment on your mixed media monday entries as I am heading off on holiday tomorrow.)
This is a rare bottle and similar to the message in a bottle philosophy. Simply write down your wish on parchment or the more modern "paper", roll it up and pop it in to the bottle... its advised to add a little something for the little people who will retrieve the bottle and decide if they should grant your wish. I have heard they are partial to humbugs. leave it near an open window or on the doorstep over night. All there is to do now is wait.

Third is burgundy stone encrusted Metal heart wrapped in a Dragonfly who I gave a steampunk makeover to..

I haven't been up to much recently craft wise. I have a stall late november so thought I would start working on the smaller items for that. the bread and butter items for impulse buying. Tags and gift boxes. I am not going to blog each item but here is a few shots of the kind of things I am doing...
