Guest Post by Justina Blakeney.... glass bottles living installation

"My home is quite green (both literally and figuratively).  I have plants and flowers, and floral and leaf prints covering most surfaces.

I got the idea to create this 'living installation' one morning when I realized how much I loved hanging plants and when I noticed how much suspended plants can add to the atmosphere of a space. So, I began to gather old glass bottles that I had lying around my home-- some used to hold spices, other liquor, or bath oils. 


I cleaned the bottles and used vintage lace and string to suspend them from a frame that had lost it's glass. I filled the bottles with water and flowers and I had my living installation.

Every week I change the flowers, and get a whole new look for the wall, and it's bright and fun, and a great way to reuse old bottles and broken frames."
